This year has been rough for us and farmers everywhere with seemingly endless rain for months and some mixed harvest yields. So, we wanted to craft a beer that nodded to all the amazing stuff farmers do to keep the crops growing. And Rick’s just created another masterpiece in the process: Red Brew 6.2.
Red Brew 6.2 is inspired by farmers up and down the UK and the back-breaking, sweaty work they do every single day.
If you tried our Majestic beer a few months back, you’ll love this one. It’s made of similarly strong stuff – just like British farmers – with 6.2% ABV. And the taste is something special. Think rich, malty undertones that settle into a hint of subtly sweet caramel biscuit. Rick used Hersbrucker hops to give it just a hint of fruitiness too. It’s unbelievably tasty.
Then there’s the colour. Rick wanted to capture that feeling of a gloriously British autumn, so he used rye crystal to give it a rich red colour. It’s the perfect beer to drink as the days get shorter. And it's so delicious that Jeremy gave a sweary and glowing review.
