Our latest Farmhouse IPA was fermented with a blend of Voss and Hornindal kveik (Norwegian Farmhouse Yeast). Citra and Simcoe make up the hop bill to push us into pine and pineapple territory. A simple malt bill lets the hops and yeast shine, with a large portion of oat malt for body and mouthfeel. A juicy hop bomb!

Plumage is a 6.1% barrel aged sour farmhouse ale refermented on plums from trees on our farm with our house mixed culture of native Northumbrian wild yeast, brettanomyces and lactobacillus. The acidity from the plums and lacto is tempered by a sweetness from the malt and toasted oak barrels, with a subtle hint of the whisky they used to contain

Steam Machine

Broken Heart & Ticket Home (DDH Peach & Lychee Milkshake IPA) - 5.5%
(First pour at Brinkburn Festival)
A thick and silky IPA, loaded up with Amarillo and Citra hops to compliment the ridiculous amount of real peach and lychee added post-fermentation. Easy drinking and moreish! 

Magical Helicopter Tears (DDH Imperial IPA) - 9.2%
Steam Machine returns to its roots here with a big pale Imperial IPA, brewed with US Citra, NZ Moutere, and AUS Vic Secret. Aromas of tropical fruit salad, stone fruit, and soft garden fruit. Initial taste is sweet, followed by overripe mangoes, papaya, nectarines, and a touch of gooseberry, finishing extremely smooth.    

East India Porter (Simcoe & Citra Porter) - 6.4%
With inspiration from authentic recipes of the 1800s, our highly hopped East India Porter is as smooth as any dark Steam Machine beer, but topped with dank resinous Simcoe, and a little bit of tropical Citra, to add waves of delicious hop aromas, atop layers of malt complexity.
