This year’s collab from Wild Beer Co and Beavertown Brewery has just hit the warehouse. Blubus Maximus (5.5%, 75cl only) is gently tart fruit beer, subtly enhance with bay leaves and ton of blueberries. That’s not a figure of speech – it was literally a ton.
Continuing the West Country collab theme, Arbor Ales have a brace of collabs in their current range. First, a wonderfully aromatic red ale with Italian craft brewery Mezzo Passo. Basta Rosse (5.5%) is chock full of delicious Mosaic and Cascade hops. And secondly, Bonsai (6.5%) is a collab IPA with Welsh urchins Tiny Rebel.
