OUR BEERS

All of our beers are unfiltered and unfined (no fishy bits!). This means that we expect them to be slightly hazy/cloudy. It also means that they are suitable for vegetarians/vegans. Beers with high wheat/oat content or dry hops (Wheat beers, IPAs, etc.) tend to be cloudier due to insoluble proteins from the cereals or aroma/flavour oils from the hops. This isn't bad, but often offends standard mass produced lager/beer drinkers. Embrace the haze!

When our beer is served in a pub, you are drinking true 'cask conditioned real ale' which adheres to CAMRA's guidelines.

Some of our beers are treated with an enzyme (prolyl endoprotease) that significantly reduces the gluten in them (to levels below 20ppm). Technically this would make them able to be labelled as gluten free, however, until such a time as we decide to validate this with independent testing, we do not intend to state the gluten free claim on our beers. This will likely change though! We still label gluten containing ingredients (barley, wheat, oats, etc.) on our labels. Any beers that have been treated to reduce the gluten will be labelled as 'treated with gluten reducing enzymes'. We do not claim they are gluten free!

5 litre mini-casks

Available now from the Prestoungrange Gothenburg!

5 litre mini-casks (often referred to as 'party kegs').

Because these casks contain live beer, they are true cask conditioned ales!

Price £23 / release date 5th November 2020. Currently these are available for takeaway collection only up to 6pm. Check out the Goth's Facebook page for opening times.

Beer available: Subatomic APA and Proton Porter. In the mini-casks, the beer %ABV will likely be slightly higher than that available on tap in the pub.

Full instructions are printed on the casks, but we recommend opening the keg and allowing it to vent (release the excess pressure by drawing the first hundred ml or so) the day before you intend to drink it. It will taste perfectly fine if you drink it straight away, but we find it is much smoother on day 2. In the pub, cask ale should be vented the day before serving as well. Once opened, the mini cask will comfortably last up to 4 days, so there's no real rush!

Cask beer

Our beers are supplied to pubs as either 20 litre (36 pint) pins or 40 litre (72 pint) firkins. They are delivered using a beer engine (hand pump) and are not force carbonated as you would find with kegged beer. This means the beer will not be 'fizzy', but it will have 'life'.

Once the world settles back down after corona-virus, we hope to make these available for private sale for garden parties, etc.

What's currently available?

If you want to keep up to date with which beers are currently on tap at our host pub, the Prestoungrange Gothenburg, we'd highly recommend that you download the free Real Ale Finder app and follow the Prestoungrange Gothenburg. It's free and you can search local pubs, or search for venues serving your favourite craft beers.

ALCHEMY ALE

A subtly fruity pale ale born out of alchemical experimentation.

This beer was discovered partly by accident. It was supposed to be our second batch of Electron ale, but with our normal yeast strain unavailable and less grain than we needed in the mash tun, we had to adapt. Throw some different hops into the mix and a Facebook campaign looking for a new name (congratulations Ian Sellwood!), it was fair to say that like the early Alchemists trying to carry out the transmutation of lead into gold, we experimented and refined. Where they failed, we succeeded.
