Craft Beer Comes To The Blue Toon
It seems we have new craft brewery in the North East...craft beer has arrived in the Blue Toon!
Brew Toon Brewery are a micro brewery based in Peterhead, Aberdeenshire. Formed earlier this year, they have spent some time kitting out their HQ with brewing equipment and brewing their first batch of beers.
They will also be opening a café bar; scheduled for this month, that will serve cakes, speciality coffees and locally sourced deli food.
They currently have 3 beers listed on their website:
Loose Cannon - Indiana Pale Ale (4.6% ABV):
"Our American IPA is fully loaded with a juggernaut of hops that will send earthquakes crashing through your taste buds. Its strong floral and herbal aromas and sharp grapefruit notes are well balanced by its rich malt base. Its finish is edgy and uncompromising and leaves for an expressive, almost spicy palate...
This IPA is a loose cannon!"
Raspberry Cannonade - Raspberry Cream Ale (5.0% ABV):
"Our Raspberry Cream Ale is jam-packed with locally sourced Scottish Raspberries, combined with a sweet malt base making for a smooth, creamy finish. When you first open the bottle there is an explosion of raspberry aroma...and the blend of citrus hops paired with the raspberries creates an intense palate that really pushes your tart tolerance to the brink!"
Weekend Hooker - Lager (5.0% ABV):
"Get hooked on our new craft lager! Reinvented with a bold variety of malts and left to condition until the optimum moment to ensure a smooth head with a soft, refreshing finish. Earthy in aroma, expect a full bodied malt character, with citrusy undertones and an assured bitter finish."
It's great to see new breweries popping up in Aberdeenshire and hopefully Brew Toon Brewing can follow the trend of producing quality beer.
I'm definitely looking forward to trying out these beers; especially the IPA & the raspberry cream ale. Hopefully Westhill Service Station will get their hands on some 🍻
