After returning from Beer X in Sheffield we sailed back into our third Shakedown at the wonderful Baltic Social! It was a great day as usual with an eclectic mix of music and beer and the company of fine friends and family.
So we’ve been pretty much recovering from that all-dayer and getting back to basics in the normal day to day life of running a brewery. We learned such a lot at Beer X and we were reminded about things that we needed to be doing going forward.
Plans are forging ahead for our expansion further into Knowsley Park which we are so excited about because it means we can do everything we’ve dreamed of doing with the brewery. Keep watching this space for further developments…..
And in other news an important event has occurred at Melwood. Our trusty brewer Stan Shaw has reached his 1000th brew! We gave Stan free reign to produce a beer that sums up his inimitable style and brewing knowledge and he’s done it! He’s named it ‘1000 Up’ and it will be appearing in the great hostelries of Liverpool from this week. Its 5.7 ABV and has a mix of hops including Citra, Mosaic, Amarillo and Nelson Sauvin and has a crisp biscuity taste from the malts Stan has used. We hope you enjoy it on draught at your fave pubs and can salute Stan on his Millennium achievement.
That’s all for now but keep supporting local breweries and pubs we couldn’t do it without you! Salut!
