A Little Bit of History

It’s thirty years to the day that the Brewery first opened its doors.  At 6am this morning, a rather special brew was going through the brewhouse.

This 6% version of Utopia 30th is destined to be a one off, limited edition, bottle-conditioned tribute to our 30 years of brewing here in Tongham.

Full-bodied, golden in colour and loaded with hops, for tangy citrus and mellow tropical notes.  Brewed with Fuggles and Cascade hops from our own garden, complemented by a fine trio of US hops - Centennial, Mosaic and Ekuanot.  The bottle-conditioning will allow the flavours to really develop..

Utopia is normally reserved for every 1000th brew, but Utopia 7000 was such a big hit in November 2020, Miles decided he couldn’t wait until our 8000th brew.  Brew 7376, aka Utopia 30th Anniversary Ale is going through the brew house today.  Once brewed and bottled, it will take another 6 weeks in the “warming room” for the secondary fermentation to complete.  We can’t wait to try it!
