BrewDog Manchester

Right, got back home from the Manchester trip yesterday after lots of beer, Springsteen and good food.

Have to share a bit from the BrewDog pub especially, since we spent so much time there.

Day 1:

So first i had a Mr Squirell, a Black Lager, and normally i’m not too big of a fan of Lagers (even black) but this one was interesting. Its brewed by BrewDog but doesn’t have the BrewDog logo on the bottle, not really sure the story behind it.






It has an interesting read on the back on what made this beer so interesting:






Next up was a Mikkeller Nelson Sauvin Single Hop IPA. If you know me you know I love Mikkeller beers, and this one is among my favorites. I could drink it all night long, perfectly sweet and bitter, i can’t wait to brew with the 200g of the Nelson Sauvin hops pellets i have in the fridge!






For dinner we had some burgers from the bar, i had a Milwaukee Burger. “The lovechild of a German bratwurst and a Danish hot dog. Fennel-studded pork mince, sauerkraut, Zeitgeist mustard sauce, pickles, smoked cheddar, and crispy fried onions.” Needless to say it was amazing, if only i had room for another one.






And to finish the night off i had an “Evil Twin Brewing Without You I’m Nothing”. The 2nd sour beer i’ve had so far, the first being the Mikkeller Sur Munk. Still not sure what to make of the sour beers, but they are growing on me, and I would definitely recommend trying one of the 2 I mentioned.

Time to bottle the Indian Saison, have already added the suger, just moving the beer over to a bottling bucket.











Cleaned the bottles yesterday, today they just needed to be sanitized.










Ready to bottle….(it looks lighter than it really is….)










And after about 30 minutes, 20 liters of beer ready for storage!
