Plymhop Ale

Our green hopped beer “Plymhop Ale” is ready! Made with hops grown right here in Plymstock, a local gardener harvests them when the conditions in September are favourable and we brew with them the very next day. Although the recipe in terms of the malt and bittering hops remains the same, the flavours and aromas from the green hops will be slightly different each year depending on the weather conditions when they are growing and ripening. The beer has an ABV of 4.3% and is available in pins and firkins now!

Akela IPA

Our brewer Dan has created a new beer called Akela IPA. We generally only use hops grown in England but for this beer we have used Wolf hops from Slovenia. It has an ABV of 4.8% and  it’s fruity with hints of passion fruit, citrus fruits and spices. It has been going down a storm in the Fortescue on Mutley Plain – the first firkin was drunk in four and a half hours!

The pump clip was illustrated and created by the very talented Dawn Louise Simms. If you’re lucky enough to catch a pint of in the Fort you may be doubly lucky and be served by the artist herself….!

It might be spring but there is still a nip in the air! Our golden Devon Frost is 4.5% ABV.

Another old favourite and part of the early Summerskills line up, Ninja is amber and late hopped with Celeia 5.0% ABV.

Our November Porter got quite a following so we are now brewing it regularly as Plymouth Porter at 5.0% ABV. 5p per pint sold is donated to the Chestnut Appeal for Prostate Cancer.
