Details

Grapefruit, tangerine, and tropical notes mingle with a prominent rye spiciness in this full-bodied, resinous rye IPA. Beavertown is known for making ridiculously drinkable beer, and 8 Ball (so named because the brewers used snooker balls to weigh down the hop sack during the extensive dry-hopping process) is no exception.

A firm bready malt backbone balances the bold citrus flavours, leading to a dry finish which leaves you wanting more.

Brewery Info

Founded in 2011 by the amazingly-named Logan Plant, Beavertown was the old Cockney name given to the historic De Beauvoir area in London. The Beavertown brewery was set up in Duke's Brew & Que - a pub in De Beauvoir, Hackney, which quickly became famed for its authentic American BBQ and punchy craft beers.

The first thing you notice about a Beavertown brew is the packaging - futuristic, apocalyptic and totally entertaining whilst you enjoy your beer. They have an excellently variety to try, including a black IPA (!) and a smoked porter. If those sound a bit too experimental for your tastes, try their Pale Ale and Session IPA.
