COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Cask & keg; Occasional.
First brewed in April 2014. Brewed again in May 2014 & August 2014.

Hops from australia and New Zealand.
Bigger, better, faster, hoppier, bitterer, Oceanicer...
Oceanic version 3.0 will, hopefully, be all of those things when we brew it tomorrow! The recipe has been pared right back to include only luscious Nelson Sauvin and Galaxy hops (plus a pinch of Magnum for bittering) and we’re hoping this will be the final iteration, the final word, the definitive Oceanic!
