In a nutshell: Limited edition tropical Pale Ale from Big Smoke Brew Co of Esher, Surrey.
The lowdown: Big Smoke's latest limited edition is brewed in collaboration with Bigfoot Festival - the music and craft beer summer festival. Double dry-hopped with Sabro and Citra this is a perfect holiday brew. Pina Colada-esque flavours of coconut and citrus with a hint of sweetness and a full and rounded palate.
Style - Bitter, Pale Ale & IPA ABV 4.5% - Moderate Strength
After starting out in 2014 by brewing at the back of their own pub, The Antelope in Surbiton, at which time most of the beer they brewed passed through the pumps of the pub itself and never got further afield. Since then they've grown steadily due, in no small way, to the sheer tastiness of their brews.
In late 2018, with the help of investment from a few individuals who share their values, they were able to relocate the brewery in nearby Esher which will give them the capacity to increase production in line with the demand they've generated. What started out as a little hobby by a few enthusiatic people has become quite an enterprise brewing delicious beers.
