Independent family brewer Hall & Woodhouse is launching a New England IPA (NEIPA) as the first beer in its new ‘Small Batch Series’ of limited edition bottled beers.
The new Small Batch Series NEIPA is an unfiltered 5.5% ABV beer with notes of pineapple, mango and a hint of tangerine. It is Hall & Woodhouse’s first hazy beer; brewed with oats and wheat to provide a milky opaqueness. Three hops have been chosen -El Dorado, Citra and Mosaic – for their powerful aromas.
Drinks Marketing Manager Matt Woodhouse said: “The Small Batch Series is an exciting development in our beer offering. Small Batch Series is a new name from Hall & Woodhouse, but it comes with the centuries of brewing heritage and focus on brewing top-quality beers with the finest ingredients, that have always underpinned our Badger Beers.”
The NEIPA is the latest beer in Hall & Woodhouse’s programme, following in the wake of the fruity passionfruit and mango IPA Fropical Ferret, and Twice Tangled, the modern revisit on the 1980s Tangle Foot original. Milk Made is another new product, a milk stout with delicious layers of chocolate, vanilla and coconut.
The Small Batch Series beers will be brewed at Hall & Woodhouse’s state-of-the-art brewery in Blandford. The local family brewer plans to release more beers under the range several times a year, with runs limited to around 2,000 cases, available exclusively through the Badger Direct online store, or at the Hall & Woodhouse Brewery Shop in Blandford.
