POLLY'S BREW CO Against The Darkness - 440ml
Back in October, we made a challenge to our head brewer, Lally. The test? Something we'd never done before - a Christmas themed beer. Never one to back down from a task, the first phrase on his design sheet was simply "A beer that makes you feel like you're in front of a roaring fire, even if you're not". Opting to go down the Imperial Stout route, we got on the phone to our pals over at Simpsons Malt to collaborate with them and use some of their newest specialty malts. With a grist bill of Chocolate, Double Roasted Crystal, Brown, Medium Crystal, and Aromatic malts, as well as our tried and trusted Extra Pale and Oats, we've complimented this big, bold stout with Cinnamon, Ginger and Nutmeg to impart a distinctly seasonal vibe; creating maybe our best Impy yet.
Polly's Brew Co - Since launching in early 2018 we have grown and adapted our setup to form a small but tight-knit team of ten running the day to day operations of the brewery.Our motto is to never stop improving; we’re always learning and tweaking our beer designs to create the best beer we possibly can, packaged into only kegs and cans to optimise freshness and keep our beer tasting as fresh as it does from the source.
Our passion is to create hop-forward, modern styles of beer; with an emphasis on freshness. We’ve developed and grown our Originals range, the core of our output since day one, to a high level of consistency. From this we’ve been able create the Augment range – the next step in our brewing journey. Our journey doesn’t stop here though; we are always looking to push ourselves, exploring new styles and brewing techniques to test ourselves as brewers – our next port of call being our first ever barrel-aging project.
