Remembrances of April Days…

It seems that the cold swells of the year's final exhalations have begun to descend upon our dear coastal hamlet, leaving their sodden grasp upon patio and patron alike.
However, whilst sunshades are exchanged for their rainy day counterparts, the Acres takes opportunity to send fond remembrances of those spring days when puddles were but a marker of floral tapestries yet to break forth from rich soils.

Driftwood Spring Rite Abbey Ale was created using all locally harvested malts and Belgian yeasts. The result is a lovely beer blossoming with notes of citrus, fresh grasses, a ripe fruits. A seasonal ale that we have saved to make these fading autumn months a little sunnier.

Rye Tonne, Rye Tonne

Scales tipped over in favour of heaps of rye malt and piles of pine-esque hops. No balance to be found therein. Bold, assertive flavour captivated the gaze of onlookers now unable to divert their palates. An exciting collision between a bitter unknown and wanting imbiber.
