All Hail Hole Digger!!
Summer has hit us, although we’ve not really been feeling it this week at Bestens HQ, as the constant sound of rain pounding the roof has been the backdrop to an exciting week in the brewhouse.
We will be releasing the second beer from our Icons Range on Friday 14th June. This is a big hazy IPA, with lots of oats and wheat giving it a smooth and sumptuous mouthfeel. The hop schedule has been designed to bring big flavour and aroma to the table. Centennial, El Dorado, Mosaic & Mandarina Bavaria are offering up beautiful tangerine, grapefruit & melon notes.
Hole Digger is dressed to kill in its 440ml cans, thanks again to @kayaspawsteps for the incredible artwork, we are honoured to showcase her amazing illustration talents.
This beer is dedicated to an old friend, who has supported everything about Bestens Brewery from day 1. Dave W. has been the landlord of the pilot brewery, unofficial salesman, ambassador and all round top mate to the brewery and all of the Bestens Team for what seems like forever. Cheers!
Hole Digger will be on sale at South Down Cellars in Lindfield on Friday 14th June, before anyone else gets their hands on it! We will then be selling a limited amount at our Pop-Up Taproom at The Orchards Shopping Centre in Haywards Heath on Saturday 15th June. Speaking of which, we will be popping up every Saturday at The Orchards Shopping Centre throughout the summer! Oh my!!
Then keep your eyes peeled for Hole Digger burrowing its way into all the other wonderful independent stores that stock Bestens across Sussex.
In other news, our full license has been approved for the Bestens HQ taproom, which means we will now be opening on Friday evenings from 5-8pm, starting on Friday 21st June.
Hopefully see you soon!
