In a nutshell: Piney and hazy Pale Ale from Esher's Big Smoke Brew Co.
The lowdown: New pale ale from Big Smoke showcasing the Idaho 7 hop. Galaxy and Sabro hops bring rich tropical aromas whilst Azacca and Idaho 7 give it a light piney undertone. Lots of oast and wheat are used in the brew bringing a soft, full body and a bright haziness.
After starting out in 2014 by brewing at the back of their own pub, The Antelope in Surbiton, at which time most of the beer they brewed passed through the pumps of the pub itself and never got further afield. Since then they've grown steadily due, in no small way, to the sheer tastiness of their brews.
In late 2018, with the help of investment from a few individuals who share their values, they were able to relocate the brewery in nearby Esher which will give them the capacity to increase production in line with the demand they've generated. What started out as a little hobby by a few enthusiatic people has become quite an enterprise brewing delicious beers.
