Anthology : Imperial Stout : Beer Launch

Signature Brew Anthology Imperial Stout

The launch of Anthology – a highly limited edition Imperial Stout – will be celebrated on Sunday 3rd December at The King’s Arms, Bethnal Green.

Anthology weighs in at 10% ABV with the recipe showcasing six different malts, healthy additions of Chinook hops along with cacao nibs to add a profoundly bittersweet chocolate taste. The beer features intense flavours of dark chocolate, hints of liquorice and vinous notes of dark stone fruit.

Anthology will become an annually released beer, launched every Autumn. Future releases will also include barrel-aged versions and some of this years batch has been put aside for maturation in oak.

We look forward to drinking this year's debut with you on December 3rd.

NEW BEER ALERT! Signature Brew X Rodney P

Crazy excited to be working on our next collaboration with the legend that is Rodney P, a true hip hop originator, founding member of London Posse, and without whom the scene today wouldn't be what it is! We've brought it together under the careful direction of Tru Thoughts, one of the most respected independent record labels in the UK, with a ridiculously eclectic roster of incredible artists! 

Rodney P Signature Brew

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.....

New Beer! Solo : Ekuanot

Solo : Ekuanot
This week we're releasing the third instalment of the much fabled Solo:Series. Whether it's a genius piece of scheduling or pure dumb luck is up for debate, but days after the Autumn Equinox we've kegged and canned Solo:Ekuanot.
For the brew team this is where the Solo beers get very exciting. We knew the previous incarnations of Solo:Mosaic and Solo:Simcoe would be bangers with familiar flavours from those famous hops, but with a lesser known hop such as Ekuanot the results remained a mystery until the beer was finished. 
The results in question are a myriad of tropical fruit, with hints of melon, berry, orange peel, lime and papaya. Unlike the previous Solo beers there's a lingering bitterness that's great for fans of bitter beers like myself but may not be to everyone's taste. That may seem an odd sentence to include in tasting notes for a new beer but that's the beauty of the Solo:Series, we can showcase a single ingredient that will be nectar for some and poison for others. 
Grab Solo:Ekuanot online at signaturebrew.co.uk or at your favourite Signature Brew stockist.
Cheers, Tom

Strongroom's 20th Birthday

This week Strongroom Bar & Kitchen exits it's moody teenage years, comes of age and turns 20. 
Strongroom

Strongroom has been a cornerstone of the Shoreditch scene for as long as we can remember and has always been a beer led music hub which had a pretty key role in Signature Brews development! In 2011 Tom, Sam and Dave held their first meeting to discuss their shared animosity towards the state of beer in other music venues and decided there and then that they should start a brewery. Soon afterwards came the first order, aptly from Strongrooms, and fast forward 6 years you can still find SB beers on the bar.

To celebrate this momentous occasion and to show our gratitude for the support Strongroom have given us, we've created a special edition of Roadie. The base recipe is the same much loved Session-IPA but with the not so subtle edition of a whole load of Citrus fruits. As we say goodbye to summer we've encapsulated the fruits of the sun using Mandarin, Calamondin, Pink Grapefruit and Blood Orange.

Roadie Strongroom Edition

It's like Roadie, but really fucking fruity!

NEW CASK BEER - E.P. Extra Pale Ale

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.

Signature Brew E.P. Extra Pale Ale

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!

NEW BEER! - Solo : Simcoe

Signature Brew Solo Simcoe

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.

You can find Solo : Simcoe at all good SB stockists as well as at the Signature Brew section of London Craft Beer Festival.

NEW BEER! Solo : Mosaic

Signature Brew Solo:Mosaic

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.....

NEW COLLABORATION BEER!

We have teamed up with punk duo Slaves to create our latest collaboration beer TAKE CONTROL - a 5% India Black Lager.

Signature Brew Slaves Take Control

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.
