Hogstar Sky Blue Lager launches! After 5 weeks in the conditioning tank, this labour of love is finally pouring in the Brewery Shop and Tap.
Hogstar Sky Blue is everything you want from Hogstar – unfiltered and suitable for vegans - but unpasteurised for a haze. Less bitter and less hoppy, it’s refreshing and clean with a hint of sweetness. You’ll find our 4% summer session lager will slide down very smoothly indeed. Sky Blue is just the working name for this trial brew from our pilot plant and we’re looking for a permanent name. So sit back and see if inspiration strikes!
Brewed with lager malt and wheat as normal, but with the addition of maize to add a touch of sweetness, and rice to give a dry, light flavour.
There’s a new special lager yeast as well as two German hops and a little home-grown Cascade for aroma and flavour.
If you fancy an invite to our exclusive tasting next week, you had better join the Tongham TEA Club now! Or pop down to the Brewery Shop and Tap this weekend to get your supplies.
Did you know…? The word “lager” comes from the German verb “to store”, so true to its name, it has been matured over time to allow the flavours to develop.
