Brewing from Downington, Pennsylvania USA since 1996, Victory now uses their own proprietary yeast strains and whole hop cones to brew upwards of 140,000 barrels of beers annually. This month the Medium and Large Beer Clubs will feature three of Victory's core range: The spicy, rich Belgian-inspired Golden Monkey (can); a dark, intense Storm King (Imperial) Stout and finally its famed heavy-hitter: Hop Devil IPA. But have no fear, Small Club fans! Your box will include both the Storm King and the Golden Monkey alongside the brewery's perfectly elegant Prima Pils.

We're also proud to welcome another new brewery to our range; this one being located a little closer to home: Sheffield's North Union Brewing Co. Founded by Iain Kelly--a graduate of the esteemed Heriot Watt University Brewing and Distilling Program--North Union's journey started small and simple but has since grown to their current railway-arch premises in the heart of Sheffield. Medium and Large box subscribers will get the first taste of North Union's core range IPA and Dubbel.

Rooster Brewing Co's Ragged Point

Another interesting beer that all subscribers are lucky to try this month is Rooster's Brewing Co.'s Ragged Point. This so-called West Coast Stout is stuffed full (and dry hopped too!) of big American hops--Cascade, Citra, Simcoe and Mosaic--on top of a gorgeous English stout malt grist. Make no mistake: this is not a Black IPA--it's a wonderfully hoppy, smooth and dry English stout that comes in at a manageable 5.0% ABV.

So, there you have it. Or at least some of it. We wouldn't want to give away all the magic!

As always, we love your feedback so please let us know if you loved these beers and if you have any suggestions for others to include. We hope you love what we've picked for you this month!

Cheers!
