DEVIANT & DANDY
AND THEN GALAXY
PALE ALE (3.8%)
About the beer
The first of a series of single hop pale ales to be released through the year by Deviant & Dandy. Using Galaxy hops this beer is golden yellow in appearance with a nice white head, aromas of citrus and then passionfruit and then mango and then melon, with a slight herbal note.
A medium body with low bitterness which leads to flavours of citrus and a ripe tropical fruit basket with a slightly dry finish.
Barley, Oats, Wheat (Gluten)
About the Brewery
Hotly tipped East London trio Deviant & Dandy are bringing fresh noise to the London brewing scene from their Hackney ex-garage with an exciting mashup of expert brewing and a fearless disregard for taking risks. Head brewer Darren Walker delivers master crafted recipes and has the kind of intense passion for making fantastic beer that you just can’t teach – a bona fide rockstar of the craft community.
Taking influence from the hard-hitting IPAs of the American West Coast, timeless European classics, and the contemporary madness of Scandinavian beer, the group prove they’re just as likely to honour tradition as they are to set fire to it and throw it out of a hotel window faster than you can say ‘Reinheitsgebot’.
Ever championing the symbiosis of music and beer, the team can often be found hosting DIY gigs out of the brewery warehouse, and regularly collaborate with New York hip-hop legends ‘Run The Jewels’ to produce beers which push against the boundaries of practicality and common sense, in pursuit of an almost anarchistic curiosity.
