This week's mailer is honing in on the awesome NYC tinned thang happenin' in our shops right now + an assortment of the UK's own 440ml big-hype releases.
Late November / Early December is turning out to be BIG for fussy New York beer!
A new one for us, The Drowned Lands Brewery
formed in 2020 and is in many ways beautifully far removed from a lot of NYC's well established breweries. Re-purposing a literal farmhouse in Warwick Valley, a lot of the brewery's efforts are directed towards terroir driven beers, place, and associated ingredients. However, the minerality of their water profile is what's being showcased in the three hoppy beers we've picked up. Expect soft and citrussy at the fore with deep herbal hop note and dry drinkability from Lush Yield
, Green Yield
, & Deep Terra
There's also more from world renowned haze makers Other Half Brewing Company
in the usual limited numbers, one per customer, Untappd ratings through the roof, juice for days variety. Check'em out below...
The scheduled Northern Monk
pallet has brought us more than the Hitchin Birthday TTO beers this week. New/fresh Patrons Project releases include the particularly hot topic of Other Half & Equilibrium collab 13.01 Infinity Vortex (2021)
alongside some pretty glassware to boot...
The other PPs tins just landed are:
33.01 Thought Bubble // Jock // 2000 AD // Rebellion
// DDH IPA
24.05 // Tom J Newell // 'Rejoice!'
// Imperial Stout

Manchester neighbours, Track
are supplying some of our other notable new stock this week.
Inspirational Mimosas were sipped during the making of Track & Blackjack Brewing collab, Hikari
, the first of several Nelson Sauvin NEIPAs getting a mention (but the only one to feature some literal citrus zest). Nothing Is Real
6% sounds like a delightfully balanced take on a strawberry confectionery/dessert sour. Imperial Birthday Sundae Stout
12.5% is being hailed as the brewery's seventh birthday mascot, and we'll happily allow them the unashamedly pastry self-indulgence. Tuya
3% Table Pale & Here In The Morning
5.2% Nelson & Strata NEPA should even things out a little.
Cloudwater are bringing a couple of new & hoppy numbers to the table in Slowly Turns The Key
5% DDH Motueka + Mosaic Pale & The Colours Of The Wind
6% DDH IPA led by Vic Secret with dependable Idaho-7 and Citra in support. Also, Happy!
3.5% Pale is back and might be just what you need as an easy start to the often boozy year end.
Finally, moving on to Polly's Brew Co
whom recently teased The Bruce
& The Betty
in the description of one of their Nelson hopped NEIPAs - these identical base pales are highlighting New Zealand's enigmatic Freestyle Hops products/varietals (great for side by side comparison). Pura Vida
, which was tasting lovely on tap, pairs Australian Enigma & Galaxy with an NZ mix, delivering thick punch bowl vibes. White Oak
is, by contrast, a full committal to current West Coast IPA exploration.
