Little Valley Brewery – Python IPA (IPA, 6.0%)
From high up on the Pennine moorland of Cragg Vale, West Yorkshire, Little Valley have just given their bottles a new paint job… looking good guys! 🙂
Appearance: Hazy amber, with a frothy head that leaves plenty of lacing.
Aroma: A fantastic mix of sweet malty notes, treacle and delicate vanilla.
Flavour: The vanilla and treacle aromas are followed through into the flavour, complemented by a touch of orange peel and a slightly dry, bitter hoppy finish.
A cracking combination that creates a full bodied, smooth brew, that really packs a punch!

Stroud Brewery – I.P.A (IPA, 5.6%)
They already have their fantastic brewery tap room, with amazing pizza, but things are about to get really exciting for Stroud Brewery, with an ambitious move 100 yards away to a brand-new purpose built brewery this Autumn!
Appearance: Light amber, with a slight haze and a dense white head that stays with you.
Aroma: Pine, with a hint of fresh mandarin and a very citrusy feel.

Started by seven brothers, this brewery has been making a lot of noise, successfully securing future investment from a crowdfunding campaign. They also have a cracking Beerhouse with great food and plenty on tap!
