It was all go at AD HOP Brewing on collaboration day. A brewery borne of the old days at 23 Club (may it rest in peace), AD HOP have steadily grown over the years from a cuckoo outfit to their own premises, whilst providing the Liverpool scene some very memorable beers in both cask and keg.
The brewery, run by the duo of Anders and Andy has delivered a stream of eccentric brews and when the Collective was invited to brew with them, we could hardly pass the offer up. Especially for Liverpool Beer Week.
The brief discussion of the recipe led to the aim of a session IPA being created, showcasing some of the two Andy's favourite hops. Upon completion of the mash and transfer to the kettle, things relaxed a little and a few additions of hops to the boil were followed by 30 minute whirlpool additions including Amarillo, Chinook, Nelson Sauvin and Simcoe. A few beers were then taken in to take the edge off proceedings!
