With Independent Venue Week just round the corner we thought we’d offer a gentle reminder of some of the incredible gig and events we’re hugely excited to be a part of over the next ten days. Check out the line-up below and come and show your support for independent venues at this great celebration of the grassroots music!
As part of our second year supporting Independent Venue Week we’ve teamed with UK reggae flagbearers and long time SBHQ favourites The Skints to create an incredible new Tropical Pale Ale called Nice Time...
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.
