BACK ALLEY BREWS
Westminster Tabby ESB
Our newest Back Alley Brew is here just in time for "comfort food season" (... that's a thing, right?)
This ESB, or Extra Special Bitters, is an English pale ale that as a style is characteristically stronger and more balanced than ordinary bitters.
We’ve sourced premium ingredients from across the pond, including British Pale Ale and Crystal malts, East Kent Goldings hops, and we’ve replicated the minerals found in the water from Burton upon Trent, an area famous for its pale ales, to ensure this brew is truly tickety-boo!

This Back Alley Brew is the perfect cozying away beverage!
We’ve brewed up a Märzen, which is a malty, amber lager, just in time for Oktoberfest! Lagers similar to this one were brewed in Munich to celebrate the marriage between Prince Ludwig and Princess Therese. In keeping with tradition, German malts provide a huge malt backbone and Sterling hops bring moderate bitterness and light spiciness. This beer finishes dry and crisp, which pairs perfectly with schnitzel and sausage!

WHAT IS OUR B.A.B. SERIES?
Every two months, our brewing team gets to showcase their skills and creativity in whatever weird and wonderful way strikes their mood (and let me tell you, they are all both weird and wonderful!) We will brew about 20L on our test batch system, we’ll taste it, adjust, and brew it again and again until we are happy with the beer. These one-off brews are what make up our Back Alley Brew series!
The sky is the limit for this series! Just to name a few recents, we brewed Crossing Streams with mead from Fallen Timber (a Wee Heavy Braggot), Dale’s Coffee Pale Ale made with locally roasted coffee, Ocean Pearl (Gose) with tons of fresh cucmbers, What We Brew in the Shadows (White IPA made with specially imported New Zealand Hops), and Old Jakes’ (Dark Saison made with French Saison Yeast).
