Beer & brewing
Brew it yourself
Brewing your own beer is a bit like making your own bread – you don’t know how exciting it can be until you’ve given it a go, and the resulting taste is way beyond your expectations. What’s more, there are loads of ways to brew your own beer and develop unique flavors and characteristics. But where do you start?
Beer and chocolate: perfect partners
Beer and chocolate is a match made in heaven.
Matching beer with food is a deeply rewarding and delicious activity. When paired, certain flavors bring out the best in each other and many top chefs now recommend beers as part of their restaurants’ tasting menus, keen to expand the expectations of diners beyond matching food with wine.
Brewers and Growers Working Hand in Hand
While there are many ways to add flavor to beer, hops have been the top choice for brewers for millennia. Hops are the “spice” of beer, and without them, different beers would not have their distinctive balance of flavors, bitterness or aroma. To brew truly great beers, it is crucial for brewers to have access to different varieties of the highest quality hops.
Vintage Strains of Yeast
Depending on environmental factors, barley malt and hops will vary a bit from year to year, making the work of a Brewmaster that much more challenging. But yeast is the one element that always stays consistent and true to the original yeast strain with which our beer brands were first brewed. Much of our company’s success is due to our ability to brew beers that consistently reflect the same taste characteristics – and this is due in large part to yeast.
