on 21st July six°north’s Genesis Project will be released in our bars in Aberdeen, Edinburgh, Stonehaven & Glasgow. GP is an opportunity for our brewery & bars to collaborate together. It allows our staff to learn more about the brewing process whilst showcasing their creativity! Each bar came to brew their own beer back in May. We placed no limits on what they could brew & encouraged them to be as imaginative as possible. 

Here’s how they got on…

New release: OMNIUM - Session IPA [out now]

OMNIUM is our new 4.3% session IPA, and the first in the new triumvirate of beers. It could not be further removed from the classic styles our customers have come to expect, but it follows neatly in their footsteps, and is just as expertly designed & produced. Omnium has a light malt backbone with a generous helping of dry hopped Citra, Mosaic, Amarillo and Simcoe, which makes for some very pleasant drinking!

We had Charles & Sophie with us today from Burnt Mill for a collab. We brewed a saison using locally foraged spruce tips that we steeped in the brewing water overnight to then mash with Pils, Vienna and wheat malts. 

The resulting wort was whirlpooled with Relax hops and is now fermenting with our house saison yeast strain. 

The beer will be released as part of our Foraged and Found series in August.

six°north x Fullers

It was great to have John Keeling with us today for a Fullers collab!

It’s obviously quite a dichotomy between where they are in their life and where we are, but it's just a chance to explore the diversity of brewers, further afield from ourselves!

We brewed a mixed fermentation pale ale using the Fullers house yeast as well as ours. We also dry hopped with Huell Melon.
