Imperial Stout

Partizan Brewing

We've been meaning to brew one for a while. The first beer we ever made was a stout from an old courage recipe circa 1970. It's the only beer we've remade time and again in exactly the same way. Most of our beers receive little changes and additions, evolving and improving all the time but the stout we thought perfect from day one and have never messed with it. I very often as a little tradition have a stout every Saturday after the bar closes if I've been working. I really like our stout a lot.

I've been spending a lot of time looking at historical recipes recently. I find them a good way of trying to get into brewers' heads of the time. Often I see things I wouldn't do and it causes me to rethink things and look at things afresh. Looking at old recipes or any recipes really is a bit like looking through someone else's eyes which definitely forces me at least to think in different ways.

One of the things I've seen and wanted to brew for a while is the 1914 Courage recipe found here. As we have a new packaging tank (O2 levels prepack are at an alltime low :) more on that in a future blog maybe) We were able to split this batch into three and make seperate additions.

Version 1 of this beer is simply the recipe found in the link, rich unctuous, a classic British imperial stout. Versions 2 and 3 have ingredients added to enhance and compliment the flavours already there in the original beer. We're not telling what they are though but would be interested to see if people can guess.

We're launching this beer at the excellent Indyman Beer Con this year and will have all three versions on over the weekend. Come say hi and maybe we'll find a prize for whoever guesses the right additions.

Head of production, Chris JJ Heaney will also be doing a talk on our cuvée beers in the cellar that weekend at some stage. We'll be sampling every beer from 2013-2016 and discussing both religion and science. There may or may not be incense and or religious iconography.

Gotta Find 'Em All

Partizan Brewing

So ourselves and a few of our neighbours are sharing the walls and taps of a North London pub this evening and for the next couple of weeks. You can find more details on Beerkats website

We weren't sure about vinyl on the wall due to bubbling and the lighting is tricky in the venue for hanging prints or posters. We really liked the nooks and crannys and exploring the place felt fun though so we decided to work with that.

Alec, who does our art has built four colorful characters and hidden them throughout the pub. Whoever is the first to find them all, capture them on camera and post on either instagram, facebook or twitter will win a very special prize. Make sure to copy us in on the post so we know you've put it up. 

Whoever is first to post up all four characters will win a mixed case of beer from the brewery delivered to their door. We will include some rare treats not available anywhere else, aged beers and unreleased ones too, as well as our core range of beers.

Lunch at BBNo with the Kernel

Partizan Brewing

Here's a few photos of the lunch we had yesterday as part of the London Beer City celebrations. Thanks to the guys from The Brewery Kitchen who were an absolute pleasure to work with and provided us all with some truly wonderful food. Beers were courtesy of our selves and our two very talented neighbors with whom it was a real treat to spend the afternoon catching up with and sharing beers. We hope that everyone that came enjoyed it just as much as we did :)
