L’il IPL – Big Drop Collab
Earlier this year we were delighted to be invited to take part in an exciting project with our friends over at Big Drop Brewing Co.
Big Drop Brewing Co., dedicated exclusively to making the finest 0.5% ABV beer, teamed up with renowned beer expert, Melissa Cole and four of the UK’s leading craft breweries to produce a limited edition range of 0.5% ABV collaboration brews.
Available from early November, the creation of a Raspberry Gose, India Pale Lager, Hibiscus Saison and Black IPA is the first of a global collab series planned by Big Drop.
Bringing together craft brewing expertise from across the nation, the collaboration saw SALT, along with Fyne Ales from Argyll, Harbour Brewing Co. from Cornwall and Fourpure from London work with Big Drop.
Headed by Big Drop’s master brewer, Johnny Clayton and beer expert, Melissa Cole, the brewing day held in London was an opportunity for everyone to share their extensive knowledge and to create beers of 0.5% ABV without use of artificial extraction of alcohol, vacuum distillation or reverse osmosis.
On the day, we brewed “L’il IPL” – A fusion brew of two different classic styles brings the malty backbone of a Helles with the unique zesty, lime character of Motueka hops found in many IPAs.
