Bellfield is making beer for International Women’s Day

Bellfield Brewery celebrated International Women’s Day by producing an IPA.

In what has become something of a tradition over the past few years, the women of the Edinburgh company have come together to create a beer on International Women’s Day. The latest is Rational Creatures IPA.

Bellfield said, “We started by tasting beers of similar styles and smelling a variety of hops that would achieve our desired juicy hop profile, settling on Idaho 7, El Dorado and Azaca as our primary hops. It was great to be able to get together in real life in our beer garden this year, rather than the Zoom session we had last year.

Rational Creatures IPAs are flocking to the company’s dining room and £1 from every pint sold this week will be donated to Scottish Women’s Aid.

Vocation sets focus on low-alcohol beers

The Yorkshire Vocation craft brewer is set to launch a trio of new low-alcohol beers in a bid to open up the craft market to those who want lower-alcohol options.

The first of the trio is called Lower Altitude and is a 2.8% ABV table beer, which is made using a blend of Simcoe, Sabro and Talus hops to provide a tropical fruit, stone fruit flavor and a hint of coconut.

The second is Big Squeeze, a 4% ABV Mango Pale Ale. Big Squeeze is also available through the same channels as Low Altitude, including commercial drafts. The flavored lager is said to have a big, fruity mango flavor that is balanced with the floral, lemony bitterness of the Mosaic hops.

Vocation is also launching a 1% ABV beer called Permanent Vacation in conjunction with Mash Gang, the craft beer brewer specializing in no- and low-alcohol beers. The Hebden Bridge-based company says Permanent Vacation is a light, refreshing lager that packs a heavy dose of summer citrus and uses El Dorado, Talus, Simcoe and HBC 630 hops.

Vocation Brewery’s Head of Brewing, Matt Howgate, said: “We’re really excited to launch these three low-alcohol beers. We’ve been working for a long time to make these low ABV beers, which still have the great flavor profile expected of Vocation beers. We’re thrilled to have partnered with low- and alcohol-free craft beer specialist Mash Gang to brew Permanent Vacation. This light and refreshing beer will transport you to the beach with its heavy dose of summer citrus and a clean, crisp finish that many of us crave at this time of year.

“Lower Altitude is our first table beer and at 2.8% ABV provides a flavorful beer that is more accessible to more drinkers and with Big Squeeze we squeezed as much mango into the beer as humanly possible. .”
