We had heard that Chris Peat, one of the Junction at Castleford’s stalwart supporters was going to celebrate his 60th at his favourite pub with a party for family and friends, both local and from all over the country. How could we not step in to provide a little unique something to make it go with a swing.
We came up with a 5.0% ABV straw coloured IPA ale, with deep fruit and spice flavours and aroma with a refreshing bitterness. Called Big Bash it went down a reet treat with everyone and indeed, such was its popularity that it failed to last the evening out. Several people commented that it was not only a great beer but that it should appear again and to a wider audience. We shall have to think about one.
