Hackney Brewery is looking for an experienced full-time brewer to join our team. We are London Living Wage brewery with a focus on flavour, quality and innovation.
Over the past few months, with the rise of the West Coast Pale again, the conversation has been touching on the clarity of the beer. After a night out with our friends down South at Gipsy Hill, we came up with a plan to make quite similar beers but the only difference would be it’s clarity from the speciality malts.
Earlier this summer I was lucky enough to travel to New York to visit some of our friends. We decided to head to Long Island to visit Barrier brewing. As soon as I set foot through the door Mike had pulled out a beer and as soon as I saw it I reached into my bag and also pulled out a beer. We both made beers named “Kapow!”, that was the moment we decided we had to make a hybrid! Smashing our two Kapow!’s together we got “Kronk!” an 8% double IPA.
London Beer City (http://www.londonbeercity.com) starts August 3rd and we'll be kicking it off at London Craft Beer Festival. It's their 5th birthday so expect some great things from over fifty top breweries from around the world, amazing food and keep an ear out for DJ sets from Hot Chip, Norman J, Foals and Metronomy.
