Effervescence is an apt name for this beer as I’m sure Tempest Brew Co. knew. It’s light and bubbly and a joy to drink. In proper Brut IPA style it’s dry as a bone and crystal clear gold but Tempest have mixed it up by adding 15% Rye malt to the bill to give it some extra body and flavour. The aroma carries white wine, some stone fruits and the classic dry resinousness you get from simcoe. The flavour greets you with more dry simcoe, stone fruits and a little more sparkling white wine vinousness. All in all it’s a triumph; the perfect counterpoint to a dank, sweet and juicy DIPA or NEIPA.

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!
