During lockdown, when the sun was shining and who knew what November would look like we launched a little Crowdfunder project and our mate Andy at Cafe Amsterdam pledged to ‘Brew with Danny’. It very quickly snowballed in to a collab, Andy sent me a link to a Dutch Kuit beer, a 15th Century beer brewed almost exclusively with oats and wheat and that was that. But that was too straight forward and from somewhere a Gruit appeared. We joked!…and then we blended the two and created this Hybrid.
So we took the best of both beers, using Bog Myrtle for bitterness and Caraway seeds for a zingy citrus freshness plus the big silky smooth body from the Kuit. Finally we had to make it of today, so we double dry hopped it with Muteuka to add layers of fresh tropical fruit.
CONTEMPORARY WITH TRADITION
Based in County Durham, Daniel and Gemma McColl launched McColl’s Brewery in spring 2017. Inspired by traditional British, Belgian and new wave beer styles we look to create beer that everyone can enjoy.
