Rooster's Brewing Co reveals six small batch beers from new pilot brewery

Rooster’s Brewing Company is set to launch six new small batch beers, following a £850,000 investment in a new pilot brewery and taproom.

The six new beers – five of which are available in a 44cl can – have been created to mark the relaunch of the North Yorkshire-based, family-owned brewer’s Outlaw sub-brand, which had lain dormant for several years.

The reinvigorated Outlaw Project will see Rooster’s release an ongoing range of more experimental limited-edition beers, produced using the recently-installed 10-barrel small-batch brew kit at its new site in Harrogate.

The first six beers include: the 3.1% abv Slow & Low, described as a “refreshingly tart” Berliner Weisse, with flavours of fresh lime juice and spicy root ginger; Go Backer, a 3.6% abv scaled down Vermont IPA; Behind The Curve, a 6.3% abv full-bodied, New England IPA; the 7.8% abv Loud Noises, which is a dry-hopped West Coast double IPA; Scoundrel, a 7.4% “rich and decadent” stout; and Monkey Tennis? (on cask only), which is a 4.5% abv fruity pale ale with polenta making up 20% of the grist, and added flavours of orange peel.

Oliver Fozard, head brewer at Rooster’s, said: “The Outlaw Project provides us with the perfect platform to push the boundaries of modern craft and channel the pioneering creativity we’re known for.

“Innovation, consistency and quality sit at the heart of everything we do, and these six beers mark the start of an ongoing series of exciting, experimental beers we’ll be bringing to the market.”

All of the beers in can will be available to off-trade customers on a first-come, first-served basis, with deliveries beginning from March 2.

Rooster’s Brewing Co has been creating traditional and craft beers in cask, kegs and cans since 1993.
