Moor Beer heads into winter with some classics reborn

Bristol’s pioneering craft brewer Moor Beer Company have revisited and updated some old favourites to cosy up with in the new season.

Where has this year gone? With the silly season just around the corner we’re in the final stages of getting our last specials of the year ready for you and wanted to share all of them with you as they are definitely worth getting excited about.

Starting things off with one of the brew calendar’s most special days, we’re extremely happy to release our annual fresh hop ale, Envy. This is the beer that connects us with the earth and the wonderful people that farm it. Our brewers went up to Ledbury early morning to pick some perfect looking Challenger cones on Townend Farm, and then add them to the brew a couple of hours later. We use ten times the normal mass of hops for a 4.2% pale which gives the beer a fabulous herbal aroma and flavour.  Sporting a new autumnal label as fresh as the hops, this is absolutely one of those beers to get down to the pub and sup on cask (although there are a limited number of cans available).

Envy will be available in 9 gallon cask and 440ml cans

If it’s a hype collab you’re after, this next one will surprise and delight you, especially as it’s not hoppy. Imagine if your favourite beer was the much celebrated, cult celebrity Old Freddy Walker, and you got a chance to brew a session strength version of it. Well, that happened to Simon from the Real Ale Craft Beer channel when he came to brew with us. The much more sensible Steady Walker brings all of the loveliness of its big brother and slims it down to a much more sessionable 4.8% that you can drink all autumn and winter long. You can watch the video from the brew day HERE.  Don’t miss out on the excitement!

Steady Walker will be available in 9 gallon cask, 30 litre keg and 440ml cans

Harking back to times of old and a Christmas soon to come, we’re introducing another rare treat from our Vault, a two year old Calvados barrel aged Old Ale. Sitting elegantly in our new 375ml bottles, this is the perfect beer to drink by the fire at the end of an evening. And if you’re feeling generous, it makes an incredibly classy gift for your favourite beer lover (even if that is yourself).

Calvados Old Ale is available in 375ml bottle

All three of these new releases meet the public for the first time at the Bristol tap-room from 4pm on Friday 28th October, with both Envy and Steady Walker pouring straight from the cask.

Finally, the demand for So’Hop was so overwhelming that we’ve kept this super hero around a bit longer with additional brews, so if you want more (or missed it the first time), hop on it.

All these specials are available from 31st October, direct from the brewery or via a range of wholesalers. Pre-Orders being taken now.

Notes for Editors:
Moor Beer was reborn in 2007 when Californian Justin Hawke purchased the defunct business and created what has become one of the world’s top rated breweries. Named from the Levels and Moors area of Somerset where the brewery originated, Moor Beer moved to central Bristol behind Temple Meads Rail Station in 2014 where we have a Tap Room and shop and host brewery tours.  In 2017 we expanded our reach further by opening a second site on London’s Bermondsey Beer Mile.
We have a simple philosophy at Moor – our beers are always live, always natural and always vegan friendly. Natural fermentation and carbonation with live yeast is at the heart of everything we brew. We firmly believe that live beer has a unique texture, fullness of flavour and softness of mouthfeel that can’t be replicated by faster, cheaper brewing methods. Leaving live yeast and other flavour compounds in beer enhances aroma, flavour, appearance and mouth feel. It also makes the beer vegan friendly. Our belief that adding isinglass finings to beer has a negative impact on quality is why we pioneered the unfined natural vegan beer movement in the UK.

For Moor, beer is about flavour, drinkability and enjoyment, a philosophy we combine with inspiration that has come from living around the world and working with different beer styles and techniques. We take the German, naturally hazy philosophy, combine it with the American flavour-forward approach to brewing and the British secondary refermentation tradition to create beers that are full flavoured, often hoppy, but always incredibly balanced and drinkable.

All our beers are brewed and packaged the same way for a full natural conditioning in all our formats – cask, keg, can and bottle. This means you get the same awesome beer unfined, unfiltered and unpasteurised whether you’re drinking it in the pub or on your journey.  Our beers pair particularly well with good food, good company, good times and good music. Live life, drink live!
