We’re all about innovation and using the most modern techniques and processes in our brewing here at Polly’s HQ. When our hop merchant presented the idea of Spectrum hops earlier in the year, we were immediately hooked in and interested to see what we could utilise them in. As hops in pure liquid form, we’re able to use less, but maintain the intensity of aroma and flavour throughout, adding an extra level of complexity we’ve never been able to achieve previously. With less vegetal matter within the beer too boot, this means we yield even more beer, which means more beer for everyone to enjoy! Our first dip into using these hops in an IPA style features a mixture of 15kg of Mosaic and Citra pellet hops, paired up with 2kg of Mosaic and Citra Spectrum; expect gooseberry, lychee and grapefruit notes from Citra, backed up with a tropical medley of mango, peach and tangerine notes from Mosaic.
Since launching in early 2018 they have grown and adapted their setup to form a small but tight-knit team of six running the day to day operations of the brewery.
Their passion is to create hop-forward, modern styles of beer; with an emphasis on freshness. They’ve developed and grown their Originals range, the core of their output since day one, to a high level of consistency. From this they’ve been able create the Augment range – the next step in their brewing journey.
