Come rain or come shine, it’s proving to be a busy Summer at Lytham.
After its Regional SIBA Silver award, our Berry Blonde (4.1%) is selling very well. Our Head Brewer, Will, is half way through our new “Animal” range of themed beers (Golden Beast, Angry Bird, Ice King and Dingo amongst others) and Ice King will be appearing at CAMRA’s GBBF. Our August range will also include Summer Ale (a blonde 4% session ale with a hoppy and fruity aroma), Pilsner Radler (a 3.8% pale ale with a fruity strawberry twist), Golden Mild (a 4.3% golden ale with a sweet chocolate and caramel undertone) and British Pride (a rich 4.2% golden ale with English hops to celebrate British sporting achievement!). We are also working with the Bloomfield, who, as part of their current refurbishment, are aiming to brew their own beer using a wort supplied by us – but will also be stocking our beers. We are also producing a special
festival beer for the Lytham (Proms) Festival in August. Our party casks are doing well and the new bar at the brewery is proving successful with brewery tours. To celebrate this, we are having our first series of Open Days at the brewery from Thursday 27th August until Monday 31st August – with lots of cask beers and ciders on offer
(see our website for details).
What else? We plan to start bottling our beers towards
the end of October and commission an additional new fermenting room by the end of the year.
All of which promises to keep us very busy indeed for the rest of 2015! Julie Booker
