Brewers Unite in ‘Tripel Alliance’

Some time ago, Mark Tranter of Burning Sky Brewery and Yvan De Baets of Brasserie de la Senne dropped in on Miles Jenner at Harvey’s while Yvan was visiting Sussex. During a sojourn in the Sample Room the thought was voiced that they should plan a collaborative brew, entwining elements of all three breweries in a beer that would be entirely distinctive from anything they produced individually. The Covid years then intervened and the idea was lost until Mark, prompted by Yvan, re-ignited the initiative in an email that the three men readily responded to. A further twelve months on, it is about to become a reality.

 ‘Tripel Alliance’ will be mashed at the Bridge Wharf Brewery, Lewes, later this month with all three participating brewers in attendance. The grist will comprise Pale and Munich malts, together with Spelt and Oats. Four different German hops, encompassing a range of traditional and new varieties, will be introduced at five separate stages. It will be brewed with Harvey’s spring water and yeast.

 In celebration of the moment, they will be launching the collaborative brew at a beer festival that will showcase more than 20 cask and keg beers from the three breweries, including some that are rarely seen.

 The ‘Tripel Alliance Beer Festival’ will be held in the cellars and rear yard of Harvey’s Brewery at Lewes on Friday 9 August – Saturday 10 August. There will be three sessions over the two day event. Tickets are currently available on Eventbrite.

 Cask conditioned ‘Tripel Alliance’ (4.5% abv) will subsequently be available to trade while stocks last.

 Miles Jenner commented “Brewers have always exchanged ideas – it is one of the delights of the industry – but the opportunity to brew together in this way and share a common passion is something very special indeed. It is proving a voyage of discovery for us all.”
