Brewing isn’t a simple process. It’s physically demanding, it’s mentally challenging, it’s where modern science meets alchemy. It’s roll-up your sleeves kind of work, monitoring minor differences and adjustments on site that may seem like only a matter of degrees on the thermometer but make a huge difference on the scale of taste. Yet taste is just the beginning. A good brew doesn’t finish in the keg, or in the glass. A real ale is the beginning of something wonderful … a conversation starter, the perfect partner to a special meal, or an evening huddled with good friends. To really enjoy a brew, you have to appreciate character, and not just the one in the glass, but those surrounding you. That’s why it isn’t simple. But it’s why it’s worth it, and why real character stands out.
