Oakham Single Hop Series


Oakham Ales are brewing a series of single hop variety ales.

For those of you unfamiliar with Oakham Ales they are based in Peterborough and have a 6 Barrel brewery at the Brewery Tap and a 75 Barrel brewery in the Woodston area of the city. Most of the series are limited edition brewed at the smaller brewery and are part of their Oakademy of Excellence.

The series is Nelson Sauvin (in March), Chinook (in June), Amarillo (in September) and Simcoe (in December). There has also been a very popular Citra, which I assume was brewed at the Woodston brewery as it's been in abundance around the East Midlands since April.

My personal favourite so far is the Nelson Sauvin with it's gorgeous apricot/ peach flavours. Citra comes a close second; very refreshing with grapefruit and gooseberry bitterness.

There is a list of pubs that will be selling them on the Oakademy website.


Goodness me, is that the time? I must head off to the Swan & Rushes before they call last orders.....
