Our IPA, Hop & Glory, makes a welcome return.

Guess who’s back? Hop & Glory, that’s who! After a few months hiatus due to problems sourcing one of the hops, our 4.9% IPA Hop & Glory is making a welcome return to the shelves and pumps of the UK.

Bottles and kegs of Hop & Glory were picked up yesterday and casks are already out and about in pubs.

Brewed using three hops: Magnum, Cascade and Rakau; Hop & Glory is a full bodied IPA with tropical and floral notes. It’s always been a popular part of our core range and we’re pleased that it’s back in the lineup!

If any other pubs or bottle shops would like to get involved then don’t hesitate to get in touch.

Brew Foundation at Highland Fling at Graves Park

On Bank Holiday Monday (2nd May) Graves Park in Sheffield will be playing host to the 13th annual “Highland Fling” Country Fair.

This free family-friendly event features a fun dog show, birds of prey, sheep shearing, train rides, fairground rides, the ever-popular Highland cattle show and…ferret racing! Now who doesn’t love a good ferret race?!?

Our friends at Box Bar are bringing their shipping-container-converted-into-a-luxury-bar set up (it looks AWESOME) and they’ll be pouring pints of lovely Brew Foundation beer (because watching ferret racing is thirsty work!). They’ll be serving Hops & Dreams and Hop & Glory, both on keg tap, all day at the event.

Graves Park animal farm will also be open where children and adults can enjoy the company of pigs, goats, donkeys, hens, rabbits, guinea pigs and newborn lambs and calves.

So if you’re children love animals and you love beer, you know where you need to be on Monday! – Graves Park!

Hop & Glory being launched at Craft and Dough on 17th March

Good new folks! Our new 4.9% IPA, Hop & Glory, is being officially launched at Craft and Dough at Kelham Island on 17th March as part of Sheffield Beer Week.

James from The Brew Foundation will be at Craft and Dough from 5pm for an informal chat about how we started cuckoo brewing and began The Brew Foundation. You’ll be among the first people to taste our new IPA, Hop & Glory which is the bigger brother of our successful session IPA, Hops & Dreams. Hop & Glory is a bit stronger than it’s baby brother at 4.9%, so still very quaffable, and is made from the same great three hops: Magnum, Cascade and Rakau but with lashings more aroma hops (Cascade) and dry hopping (Rakau) to give this new beer a satisfying tropical hop kick.

As well as being able to be some of the first to try our new brew, the great folks at Craft and Dough have also got food offers on all week long, from 16th to 22nd March. They have paired Brew Foundation beers with some of their artisan pizzas making a Brew Foundation beer plus it’s paired pizza is just £8!

Beer and Pizza Pairings – match the beer & pizza for £8
– ‘Bitter That’ ESB bottles with ‘Crafty Cuts’ pizza
– ‘First Light’ APA bottles with ‘Beets & Roots’ pizza
– ‘Hops & Dreams’ session IPA bottles with ‘Tandoori Chicken’ pizza

Also on Thursday night at the launch event, as well as some free tasters of Hop & Glory and meet the brewer, all Sheffield Beer Week ticket holders get 25% off pints of Hop & Glory all night long!
