Phil Markowski started brewing at the New England Brewing Company in 1989 before moving to set up Two Roads with friends in 2012 which has risen to become on of the leading innovative breweries in America. He has a deep passion for farmhouse ales and literally wrote the book on them with his excellent ‘Farmhouse Ales, Culture & Craftsmanship in the Belgian Tradition”. Mark Tranter founded Burning Sky in 2014 after spending time as Head Brewer of cask legends Dark Star to set up a brewery focusing on farmhouse ales, the barrel ageing process & blending. Burning Sky are now also leading the way in the UK in wild & spontaneous fermentation with the recent installation of coolship fermenters into the brewery.  Mark & Phil will both be here on the night and we will be pouring 3 beers from each brewery that are rarely seen on tap in the UK. Full list below….

Two Roads Road 2 Ruin 8%  Assertive, hop-centric Double IPA that has a lean malt backdrop and is brewed with four American hop varieties – Summit, Palisade, Cascade and Magnum. Piney, citrus, floral

Two Roads Two Juicy 8.2% Two Juicy is an unfiltered, cloudy “New England style Double IPA” that uses generous amounts of Hallertauer Blanc, Citra & Mandarina Bavaria hops. The result is a “juicy”, fully-charged DIPA with notes of grapefruit, pine, lychee, orange & tangerine against a soft malt backdrop.

Two Roads Sauv Blanc Gose 4.8% A blend of crisp, mineral, tropical fruit, the beer has gooseberry flavours you expect from Sauvignon Blanc wine, combined with the salty, refreshing tartness of a gose beer

Burning Sky Cuvee 6.5% The pick of their Saison à la Provision from Foudre no. 1 and from a number of Chardonnay barriques, then blended with a large portion of Lambic, imported from Belgium that has been ageing at Burning Sky.

Burning Sky Saison Anniversaire 6.2% Saison Anniversaire is a celebration of everything Burning Sky loves about saisons. Lightly spiced in the boil, this special edition beer was fermented and aged entirely in French Chardonnay barriques using their house saison and a blend of wild yeast strains.

Burning Sky Petite Saison 3.5% A light and easy drinking mixed fermentation saison aged in wine barrels. This is an incredibly complex beer for its low ABV – stunning notes of lemon sherbet, fresh cut grass and funky undertones
