Crazy excited to be working on our next collaboration with the legend that isRodney P, a true hip hop originator, founding member ofLondon Posse, and without whom the scene today wouldn't be what it is! We've brought it together under the careful direction ofTru Thoughts, one of the most respected independent record labels in the UK, with a ridiculously eclectic roster of incredible artists!
As with all our collabs the artists are heavily involved, this one is no different. Rodney P met the team at Signature Brew back in July, where ideas were explored, and recipe / concept was developed. He then returned in August for the brew day, where he got stuck into all aspects of brewing the beer.
The first half of the brewing method is as standard with a base Golden Ale hopped.....
It’s been a whole week since we launched a new beer here at Signature Brew and things were getting a bit stale. So without further ado we’re delighted to announce E.P., a 3.5% Extra Pale, hopped with national favourite Citra. This crowd pleasing beer is super crisp with notes of grapefruit, gooseberry and lychee on the nose followed by a mouth filling citrus taste.
This isn’t a single, but it isn’t quite an album, it’s the best of both. Everything you want from a beer concisely pressed to a sessionable 3.5% and as EPs were predominantly popular in the UK rather than North America we’ve decided to launch the beer initially on cask, in true British style. So stick it to 45 and enjoy!
The school playground turned market space will play host to guided tastings every Saturday for 4 weeks, and on Saturday 12th it will be our turn! So come down and spend the day sampling Signature Brew beers whilst enjoying the bustling vibes of Brook Green Market. Plus you can even purchase our cans to take home.
The tasting session is completely FREE! For more information and to register for tickets just click here.
On this fine Monday we’re terribly excited to release the second edition of the Solo : Series. Bringing the tropical flavours of South America is the much loved hop at SBHQ, Simcoe. It was first used here in Candela Gold and has been a firm favourite ever since with its massive summery kicks.
Like the first addition in the Solo Series we’ve kept the malt bill super pale (ABV coming in at 5%) with just a little oats for body, allowing the star attraction to be the Simcoe Hops. The aroma and flavour is a tsunami of Passionfruit with hints of citrus, tropical fruits and pine.
We’re pretty soaked to announce that Signature Brew will be pouring at Visions Festival this Saturday! The one day celebration is now in its fifth year and focuses on music, art, food and culture and takes place over various venues across London Fields. Expect live music, a record fair, a dog show and loads more!
You can find the Signature Brew bar at Space Studios courtyard from 1pm - 10pm where we'll have Signature Brew favourites Roadie All-Night IPA and Studio Pilsner on tap, plus special appearances from our new beers!
There are only a few tickets left so get yours here . Pop down, grab a beer, have a go on the punk rock karaoke and soak up some awesome live music!
This week we’re excitably launching the Solo Series, a collection of beautiful beers thrusting a particular ingredient under the spotlight. Whether it be the guitarists time to shine or the egotist “going solo” these beers will be individualist and make stars out of the ingredients we champion.....
The Scottish Stores are having their very own one-day festival in the heart of King's Cross and Signature Brew will be there to quench your beer thirst!
Come and meet our brewers and enjoy some live music from Bryn Hoffman and Daniel Eagle. Plus there will be cask beers Signature Pale and Session Bitter available on tap alongside Roadie All-Night IPA and Studio Vienna on keg.
Bryn Hoffman: Bryn sings and plays the guitar and blows the harp, often at the same time. When not alone he leads The Dusty Groove House Band. He used to front a rock and roll band called the Shoestrung. Bryn performs a menagerie of blues, country, folk and rock and roll songs and sometimes slips in his own compositions. He likes to sing for the sake of the song.
Daniel Eagle: Daniel Eagle is a South Coast based Soul singer/songwriter currently touring the U.K. to promote his new album 'Stolen Blankets & Broken Beanbags'. Daniel's music style is inspired by artists such as James Brown, Stevie Wonder and John Butler.
Entry is FREE so click here for more info. See you at the bar!
We're heading to The Rake on Wednesday 31st May for our debut Rake tap takeover! We'll have cask beers such as Backstage IPA alongside kegs such as Studio Vienna lager and Stagediver double IPA, PLUS our latest collaboration beer Take Control will be making an appearance!
We have teamed up with punk duo Slaves to create our latest collaboration beer TAKE CONTROL - a 5% India Black Lager.
Slaves have been laying waste to UK venues since first emerging in 2012. Their combination of punk urgency and humour have seen them rise to be one of the most socially relevant and must see acts in the country.
Taking the name from Slaves' 2016 album it nods to UK youth culture, the global political climate, and the irreverent, punk attitude that the band and brewery share. The beer dips it’s toes into the collective pool of many styles to create a light refreshing lager with a “mojito” lime character, a nod to it’s deep black colour and fresh hints of citrus.
When embarking on any new collaboration we like to ensure any band or artist we work with have a handle on the background of beer and what goes into making it.
With Millencolin no such introduction or lesson was required, as quite simply, they live and breathe beer as much as we do!
Our collaboration POLAR - a 7% White IPA - was born out of an intensive tasting session at the brewery, and an extensive email chain in which no stone was unturned in pursuit of the perfect recipe.
With lead singer Nik at the helm on the brew day Polar was born. New Zealand hops Rakau and Wakatu provide a whole orchard aroma that’s followed by a citrus, pine and spicy flavour that is played off against the wheat heartbeat. French Saison yeast allows the aroma to shine yet maintain a complexity true to style.
Check out the video below! You can buy Polar from our online store here.
