Special brewing for SwanFest

Micky went to The Brewery this week to create a special beer for SwanFest. We are brewing a Red IPA at 4.5%. This is an exclusive for our SwanFest and only available from The Swan during 19th-21st August. It will not be available anywhere else (including The Brewery).

Step 1: ensuring you have the equipment, people and raw ingredients.

Step 3: carefully measuring out the ingredients.

Step 4: mixing the ingredients, and starting the brewing process.

Step 5: fermenting and waiting for a wee while, and a bit longer, and a bit longer .... time to do the naming and branding. We had a competition and the team chose 'FEATHERED FRIEND', named by Adam Chojnacki and a local resident. A brilliant name that ties to our community and story beautifully! Well done Adam and thanks for creating the perfect name for our Beer!
