Conspiracy of Three DIPA 7.5% 440ml – Conspiracy of 3, 2 and 1 will be a mini DIPA series using London ale 3 yeast and sets out to explore the blending together of Amarillo, Simcoe and Talus hops.

The Cold Bay | Assemblage Series | Sauvignon Blanc Sour – We have used coriander seed and sea salt to give a citrus bite and saline tang to the finish, reminiscent of a traditional Gose beer.
