Pre-Brewgrass Tasting 9/19: Ilkley Brewery (UK) with Chris Ives, founder & head brewer

Posted Sep 17, 2014 in Beer, Beer Awards, Breweries, Events, People, The Beerlanthropy® Project

chrisivesAs we do the Friday evening before every Brewgrass, we invite a brewery to come in for a preview. We’re pleased to announce and welcome Chris Ives, founder and head brewer at Ilkley Brewery (UK) on Friday, September 19, 5:00-7:00 p.m. Learn a little more about Ives in this 2013 Q&A interview from The Times SME Hub regarding their rapid growth at home and abroad. Come join us for a few beers and beer chat!

What we’re sampling:

Siberia Rhubarb Saison: “Back in 2012 we wanted to launch a new range of beers with a bang, and what better way than to invite the renowned tour-de-force beer-writer that is Melissa Cole to come and brew with us. Our aim was to put our own Yorkshire stamp on the Saison category, and we did so with the addition of local Rhubarb. Rhubarb was first discovered growing on the banks of the river Volta, in Siberia, and Yorkshire has become renowned for cultivating this sour beast of a plant. Siberia is now our most successfully exported beer. Whenever we use additional ingredients in our beers, the aim is that their flavour combines with others to create an overall flavour, as opposed to bombarding with a single flavour. As such, here we utilized the sour nature of rhubarb to balance the farmhouse earthiness of Saison yeast. We stewed the rhubarb with vanilla to provide extra balance, so that this beer is tart in all the right places, and subtle throughout. Refreshing and with a little zing provided by ground Grains of Paradise and there is a long, satisfying bitter finish.” [5.9% abv]

Mary Jane IPA: “Mary Jane IPA is a Trans-Atlantic India Pale Ale. Relying on the English hops for bittering, the star of the show is the North American hop aroma, deceptively smooth on the palate building to a hoppy crescendo. Based on the award-winning Yorkshire classic Mary Jane, it has a floral aroma, notes of honey and a pleasant lingering bitterness to finish. Recent 3rd Place in the Atlanta Cask Ale Festival 2014 in USA.” [6.0% abv]

The Mayan Chocolate Chipotle Stout: “They may not have got all their predictions right, but they knew how to brew great beer! Inspired by an ancient Mayan recipe, this extraordinary Stout is velvety smooth, bittersweet, and has a subtle smoky fire in its belly. The time has come to put yourself to the ultimate test; dare you take on… The Mayan?!” [6.5% abv]
