Dark Star teams up with Saltaire

07 February, 2014

Two British craft breweries have teamed up to produce a pair of European beers.

Sussex’s Dark Star brewery and West Yorkshire’s Saltaire have released a 5.6% abv Bock, and plan to celebrate the Tour de France starting in Yorkshire in July with another brew.

The Bock is a rich dark brown beer with a malt aroma and toasty caramel flavour, with fruity hops and bitterness.

The brewers are now working on the beer to celebrate the Tour de France, and are planning a refreshing ale to drink after a long bike ride.

James Cuthbertson of Dark Star said: “We’ve worked with Saltaire for years and have great respect for what they’ve achieved in Yorkshire. We’re like-minded when it comes to producing quality beers and it just seemed natural to get together and combine our talents in this way.”

Ewen Gordon, Saltaire Brewery’s sales director, added: “This collaboration is a first for Saltaire, and not something we do lightly or are likely to do often, and the Dark Star team were our first choice.”

Welcoming the wine rookie

It’s all true. Wine writers loaf around in a state of partial inebriation and partial undress, bitching about having to taste free wine all day and using recondite words like malolactic, terroir and recondite.
