London Brewing Company & Brains Collaboration Launch & Brains Tap Takeover at The Bull  

“When London Brewing Company head brewer Rich White got the opportunity to brew a collaboration with Bill Dobson, he couldn’t wait to pick his Brains! The beer itself, a blueberry maple mild, is a real coming together of the breweries, brewers and their backgrounds.  Brewed at The Bull in Highgate North London it combines the traditional Welsh Brains Dark recipe with maple syrup from American brewer Rich’s home county and the final flair of blueberry from Bill’s experimental side. In the kettle, the maple adds woody, earthy tones and the extra maple used in the casks brings sweetness and the signature maple aroma.

The beer will be launched on Thursday 25th September during cask ale week at The Bull in Highgate.  It will be served with mini Blueberry Maple Pancakes and a host of other beers from Brains as they take over the taps at the North London brew pub.”
As well as the collaboration brew, S.A Gold, Frisco, Stars & Stripes, Atlantic White and Mexican Wave will also be on the bar from Brains. Bill will also be taking a couple of casks of the London Brewed beer back to Cardiff… it might even make it out of the brewery!
