If you’re going to get dropkicked by anyone, it might as well be Jesus. Tempest certainly seem to think so with their rather curiously named Drop Kick Me Jesus. It’s a Sour Pale Ale which certainly doesn’t need any angels to foretell its coming. A copperish, pale gold, it’s peachy with grapefruit, crisp toasted malts and even a little pepper. The flavour is lightly sour, with lots of tropical fruits, grapefruit, pine and resin. It finishes with cereal grains and lime, and of course the light, and not at all overpowering sourness. Go on! Dropkick me Jesus!

Brewery Info

The Tempest Brew Co. dream started when husband and wife team Annika (of New Zealand) and Gavin (of bonny Scotland) met while working at a brewpub in Canada. They moved to New Zealand and Gavin started brewing with whatever kit he could get his hands on. Inspired by the fresh NZ hops, he created what was their first beer, <a href="https://www.beerhawk.co.uk/tempest-brew-co-long-white-cloud">Long White Cloud</a> which is still being made to this day!

A move back to bonny Scotland and a stint as restaurateurs was the final stage before opening the doors at Tempest Brew Co. And my, did they come out a-swinging! Winning multiple awards across Europe, they’ve become a force to be reckoned with and, with beer this good, we’re not at all surprised! Brewing up a storm to rival The Tempest itself, a Tempest beer is always a good choice!
