It feels like an absolute age since I wrote one of these. Let's be honest, it has been! Big thanks to Alex for picking up the slack whilst I've been busy trying to keep things running as smoothly as possible during the lockdown.
What a summer hey?!?! Three months of lockdown saw an unprecedented demand for beer and hopefully we've done a reasonable job keeping you all well stocked. The end of the lockdown coincided with us finding out that we had been nominated for an award in the Lux Magazine 2020 Food & Drink Awards so we must have been doing something right.
Despite working our arses off we have still found time to enjoy some splendid summer beers and Unity Brewing Co's Grayson is up there as one of my personal beers of the summer. An easy drinking pale brewed with crumbed lemon peel and vanilla it delivers a refreshing, zesty mouthful followed by a smooth, creamy vanilla finish. I found it to be a perfect companion on those warm sunny days back in May/June (remember those?!?!).
The can art depicts baby dinosaurs chasing lemons in homage to the Unity taproom manager's first born - Grayson - of whom the beer is named.
The beer pairs perfectly with Dope Lemon's Marinade. The wistful guitar chords and video portraying fledgling young love takes me back to innocent days spent exploring during the summer school holiday!
