Keeping it real … Real Ale
This Friday (11th November) the Leyton Orient Supporters Club will be celebrating winning CAMRA Greater London Club of the Year 2016 and would like you to come join us for a night of London beer. To help celebrate we have put together a list of beers brewed in London that we have either never had on our bar before, a brewery we have not featured before or a special beer that is not often seen from one of our close brewing friends. Beers on the evening are…
Signature Brew – Roadie 4.3%
Roadie is usually seen served on keg, but was featured on cask for our Signature Brew tap takeover for the first time. Signature Brew are a closest neighbours and been great since they have moved in. Roadie is super crisp, light and refreshing, and brewed with plenty of Columbus & Cascade hops.
Park Brewery – Cascade Pale Ale 3.7%
The Park Brewery was started by Johs and Frankie, a husband and wife team. Brewing on a 4BBL kit and supplying to many local and London pubs around Richmond Park, it is the first time we have had their beer on at LOSC. Cascade Pale Ale is moreish, not too sweet, dry hopped with Cascade only to give it a citrusy, lime aroma.
Five Points Brewing Co – Brick Field Brown 5.4%
Five Points Brewing Co, in the opinion of many, is one of London’s finest and most consistent brewers. Brick Field Brown is their latest cask beer they’ve created. This is Five Points take on a traditional English brown ale. Brewed with Willamette hops and with Naked Golden Oats, Brick Field Brown has notes of demerara, hazelnuts and oak wood.
East London Brewing Co – Rascal 3.8%
Long-time friends of ours East London Brewing Co only brew a few roads away, so they were always part of our plans for tonight’s line up. Rascal is a ginger ale and the newest cask beer ELB are brewing. Amber in colour, with aromas of ginger fizzy pop with a fruity bitter finish.
East London Brewing Co – Pearly Queen Porter 4.5%
Only 10 casks of Pearly Queen Porter are available and with a name like Pearly Queen we had to feature it on our night of London beers! Pearly Queen is a classic porter, with dark fruit and coffee flavours, which is all wrapped up with a creamy finish.
One Mile End – Ancho Cocoa Stout 6.4%
One Mile End have gone from strength to strength since first brewing in 2014. Starting in The White Hart Brew Pub in Whitechapel, and now brewing in Tottenham, One Mile End have been collecting a big fan base. It is the first time we have featured them on an ale night, and if you return to our next home game on the 19th you will be able to work your way a few more of One Mile End beers. Ancho Cocoa Stout is a luxurious stout with raw organic cocoa nibs and smoky, mild ancho chillies.
Brewbuddies x LOSC x OLC – Ace of Clubs 4.3%
Brewed in collaboration with LOSC and fellow CAMRA award winning Orpington Liberal Club. A New Zealand Amber ale brewed with English Pilgrim hops, Waimea hops and Rakau. Peter Norward represented LOSC on the brew day and will be happy to talk through the brew day with you.
Stod Fold Brewing Co – Pale
Brewing both in Halifax and Leyton Stod Fold are now new neighbours to us. Stod Fold Brewing Co gives a nod to history while looking to the future when brewing their beer. The pale is featuring tonight for the first time for us and I am sure we will be seeing our new neighbours again.
Stod Fold Brewing Co – Amber 4.2%
Stod Fold’s best bitter is amber brown in colour, packed full of flavour and offers the perfect balance between bitter and sweet. Brewed using Maris Otter, Cyrstal malt and Torrified wheat, along with Challenger and Styrian Goldings hops.
Hackney Brewery – Amber Ale 4.4%
A nod to Hackney’s previous head brewer after he moved on from Hackney Brewery, Amber is a yearly release that is brewed in very small batch. Their Amber Ale has raisin, orange peel and citrus flavours.
Brew By Numbers – 17|07 Table Saison 3.5% (330ml bottles)
Huell Melon’s gentle white grape notes accentuate the delicately floral, spicy character of BBNo house yeast strain in this accessible, lower-ABV saison.
Signature Brew x Yeastie Boys – Anticipation 5.4% (330ml cans)
Signature Brew teamed up with the guys from New Zealand brewery Yeastie Boys to create 日本米麦酒, which means Anticipation, a 5.4% Japanese Rice Beer. It’s pale straw in colour, has a lemon meringue aroma, light grassy hops, with a very subtle umami character running throughout.
