Beer Blog #1: Neepsend Brewery

Posted 21 July 2017


Welcome to the first of hopefully many insightful posts about our guest beer selection at the Showroom Bar. I, Tom, have been given the task to take a closer look at the beer (which at times does mean tasting it) and give my opinion on it.

For the past few years have seen a myriad of breweries springing up throughout Yorkshire, and in particular Sheffield, all producing some truly delicious beers so we are somewhat spoilt for choice! The first brewery I have chosen to feature for the guest selection is Neepsend Brewery. They are a relatively new addition to the brewing scene but have come out fighting and produced some of the best beer I have tasted in a long time. Last year saw the new brewery romp through the Sheffield Beer Festival winning gold in the strong beer category for their Mosaic IPA and overall Champion Beer of the festival for their stout. 

I was super excited to be able to get their Lychee Oat Pale Ale LITCHI. At 4.7%,  this beer is made for the summer. Tropical notes really make it a joy to pass through your lips. Its currently just hit the bar so make sure you try it. We are also showcasing a number of different brews from this brewery including a single hopped American ale KIPA. At 5.2% this beer packs a bit more of a wallop! But the Willamette hop that is used for its base is delicious. The hop is known for its Floral and fruity notes and is perfect accompaniment for the summer. This beer would go well with fish and with the relaunch of the menu in the Café Bar, should give you plenty of reason to come down for a pint. 

Hopefully you’ve enjoyed learning a little bit more about Neepsend Brewery and will come down soon and try a pint of it for yourself. Each month, we will feature a range of local ales from a different brewery, and will strive to bring you the best selection that Yorkshire has to offer. So, keep your eyes peeled for our guest beers and don’t be shy to recommend some of your favourites to us!
