Steel City
Brewed at Little Ale Cart
Sheffield, England
4.2% Golden Ale/Blond Ale | 4 Ratings | 82 IBU |
Brew eight is one we wish we didn’t have to make but, as we can’t change what’s happened, we feel it’s only right for us to do everything we can to keep the memory of our good mate Chris Fudge alive. Chris died this year at the tragically young age of 39 and so, in order to show our appreciation for his friendship and all he did for the cause of scooping and craft beer over the years, we’ve decided to brew a hoppy beer - his favoured style - in his honour. this brew has a glorious grapefruit and citrus character (brewed with Columbus, Chinook, Cascade & Centennial, dry-hopped with amarillo+cascade+citra) just as he’d have wanted. We’d like everyone to raise a glass to Fudgey and, in doing so, help a very worthy cause… cheers.
