NOTE: The Alchemy range is made up of experimental beers brewed at the small brewery at Thornbridge Hall. The beers in the range are all different and are distinguished by a different Roman numeral in the name. Please do NOT add ratings here unless you sure that the beer you had was Alchemy X. And please do NOT add new beers unless you know the full name, including the appropriate Roman numeral.
During a recent visit to our hop supplier, we had the chance to meet Peter Glendinning, a passionate hop developer from Herefordshire, and rub and sniff his new selections. We came back with three varieties to brew with: Bishop, Archer and Duchess. Bishop is Goldings-like, delicate and earthy with lemon and toffee notes. Archer is pungent, resinous and citrussy (lemon and grapefruit) while Duchess is distinctive with mint and licorice notes.
Alchemy X is brewed using the Bishop hop.
