HAZY PALE ALE (4.4%)
About the beer
STYLE | Hazy Pale Ales are given their name due to their cloudy appearance. They often are juicy due to lower bitterness, leaning towards the fruitier west coast U.S. hops.
BACKGROUND | We initially brewed this beer for Dalston Roof Park, a summer roof park destination in London and a perfect setting for a summer pale ale.
TASTING NOTES | This hazy pale ale is full bodied with a malt bill of wheat, oats and malted barley giving it a hazy appearance. There is little to no bitterness as we add hops only at the end of the brewing process giving it a fruit forward aroma and flavour.
MALT | Golden Promise, wheat malt, flaked oats
HOPS | Cascade, Mosaic, Hüell Melon, Calypso
YEAST | AY5
About the Brewery
40FT is an independent brewery in Dalston, Hackney, producing fresh modern, beer.
Starting in the kitchen of a Hackney house-share where three homebrewers made beer for their house parties, the venture quickly moved into two 20ft shipping containers located in a disused Dalston car park in 2015, after convincing the head brewer of their local brewery to join them.
Over the last 6 years, 40FT brewery has grown organically by adding more shipping containers like Lego and a building a talented team of 15 people.
40FT is now brewing to capacity on a 10HL brew kit, with an output of 7,000 pints a week pouring in pubs and restaurants in East London as well as 40FT's award winning taproom.
