Please welcome our first lager brewed specifically for Oktoberfest!

It's not a secret that the festival is already officially over but October is still going so why don't we have a mass or two of tasty beer? Of course, lagers is not our strongest skill, but we decided to take some risk and to spit nails a bit. First of all, it was decided to have the colour of this beer more close to the original beers of this style - it's much more darker than usual modern interpretations of the style as seen by Munich brewers. Second, we have dry hopped our beer! Of course we have selected the perfect aroma German variety - Hallertau Mittelfruh - which added to the brewing kettle during boiling as well as to the fermentation tank later for dry hopping. This hop gives a beautiful flower flavours to our beer. Finally, this beer is a bit more stronger that usual one in this style. We suppose that it would be a plus only for the late Russian autumn. We think that experiment could be considered as successful, the beer is very drinkable with nice malty body and German hops in aroma and taste.

Cook a grilled chicken, boil the fore hock, roast the Bavarian sausages and bake the golden Pretzel - these will be all the great match to our lager. Let's continue to celebrate the Oktoberfest!

As you probably know we love India Pale Ale very much. We know that you love this beer as well. We wanted to brew the double (imperial) version of this style for a long time, but we were unable to think out some salt (and how to present this beer comparing to Red Machine which in some batches has the "imperial" strength of about 8 ABV). Finally we stopped at some specific point. Even two points. First, to use the hops from New Zealand and form the basis of our idea. So the appropriate name appeared as a result. Second, it's Christmas and New Year Time, so to give this beer some New Year character we decided to brew it with the most "New Year-ish" fruit - tangerine. Tangerine puree, carefully prepared by us from ripe tangerines from Abkhazia was added to the boil and to the "dry-tangerining" near to the end of primary fermentation. But don't think this beer is like a tangerine juice - it's a strong and bold double IPA with wonderful tropical and citrus aromas and powerful bitterness in the form of 111 IBUs. Despite the parameters, this is a very drinkable beer due to the light body and refreshing characteristics and amazing flavours of Pacific Gem and Waimea hops.

"The Beer Flood" is our collaboration brew with the Heartly Craft Brewery from Lipetsk. We decided to brew together on autumn of 2014 and the idea for the recipe came from the sad event happened two hundred years earlier on 17th of October, 1814: that day at Meux's brewery of London (also known as Horse Shoe Brewery) the dramatic incident had happened. The huge wooden vat with porter (the beer of choice for many many people at that time) was broken. The competition for the largest vats and volumes between the brewers resulted in a tragedy where 270000 imperial gallons (more than 2 million pints) were freed and the liquid gushed out of the vat to the street taking the lives of 8 persons and severely damaging a number of houses. We have researched a number of the historical recipes and decided to brew a porter of that time, the time when the black malt was not even invented. All the porters had brown, muddy colour. Of course it's impossible now to fully replicate the recipe because of malts and hops of that time are not available but we tried to make the most sensible substitution of pale, amber and brown malts. The wonderful English Fuggles hops are used in that historic brew. Our porter will be a good match for meat dishes, chocolate desserts, but English workers used to be the major porter consumers advise to drink it on its own.

You are welcome to taste our interpretation of history.

Please welcome our new beer Queen Mary brewed in a very special and almost forgotten style - Burton Ale! Just recently a daughter of our brewmaster has been born. Her name is Maria, so we decided to follow the English brewer's tradition to brew some special batch dedicated to the child birth. The part of this batch will be stored until her 18th birthday. We were carefully working on the recipe and stopped at Old Burton Ale - quite unusual strong pale ale. This beer was brewed in the Burton-on-Trent long before it became famous for it's India Pale Ales. This beer in the the same way as Imperial Stouts was very popular in Russia and Poland. And it's because of Russian taxes increase on pale beer import the Burton brewers decided to switch to another market - India. Burton Ale - strong and sweet beer. Historically the colour of the beer was pale-amber (in 19th century) to deep-nut-brown (in 20th). We took the recipe of 1843 as the basis for this beer and used pale malt only. Traditionally this beer was heavily hopped. We took Fuggles hops for bittering and East Kent Goldings for dry hopping. We used two strains of yeasts to ferment this beer including a special yeasts from Burton. And of course the water was well prepared to mimic the high in minerals water content of Burton. We have added a bit of gypsum and other salts. The result is a strong 11% ABV sweet pale ale with astonishing hoppy grassy and earthy aroma and hints of caramel in the nose, bright malty taste and solid bitterness in aftertaste. This beer needs to be consumed slowly and meditatively, taking every sip carefully with history recognition. This beer will perfectly sit on a festive table.

We are welcoming everyone to taste Queen Mary Old Burton Ale and touch the history!

Celebration Stout is our first commercial beer. Once tasted magnificent English oatmeal stouts from Samuel Smith and Young's, our brewmaster decided to brew something similar. At his homebrew he created an original recipe which with slight corrections made the basis of our beer. Large amount of special malts, unmalted roasted barley and oatmeal flakes in combination with significant portion of aroma hops add deep and extraordinary saturation into this beer. Despite the relatively high gravity and creamy and viscous taste, this beer is very drinkable, leaving pleasant notes of bitter chocolate in aftertaste.

Celebration Stout was awarded with a golden medal at XVIII International Professional Conest "Beer of the Year 2013" organized by All-Russian Research Institute of Beer, Softdrinks and Wine Industry of Russian Academy of Agricultural Sciences and The Union of Russian Brewers at November 2013.

At the contest "Brewer’s Pride" as a part of the First All-Russian Conference of Independent Brewers and SoftDrink Producers "Independent Brewing, Cider- and Mead- Making of Russia" organized by National Union of Beer and Drink Producers at March 2014 our Celebration Stout took golden medal.

Did we reach the level of Samuel Smith? It's up to you, drink our stout!

In many countries there is a long-live tradition to brew special types of beer for New Year and Christmas. We decided to support this tradition. In collaboration with a private brewery "1 Tonna" (Zhukovsky, Moscow region) we have created an extremely aroma special Christmas Ale - Moonlight X-Mas! The basis of this beer was taken from our brewmaster's homebrew recipe (Victory Homebrew) called Auld Lang Syne created three years ago. In a recipe we have used a great variety of spices: orange peels, cinnamon, nutmeg, crushed coriander and a large quantity of tasty flower honey! There is a nuance - juniper berries presented by "1 Tonna" pub customers! The result is a bright, distinctive, very uncommon taste with noticeable bitterness, full body and explosions of Christmas crackers in your mouth! We wish you cozy winter evenings in a company of friends and our flavoured ale!

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!

Our version and our vision of classic India Pale Ale in American style. Rather pale (with a small addition of crystal and wheat malts), very dry with distinctive bitterness and strong classical American aroma and flavour of citrus and tropical fruits - that's our interpretation of American IPA for everyday consumption. We used LOTS of hops to achieve that: 5 hops additions throughout the brewing process plus double dry hopping with significant amount of hops during different stages of fermentation. Hops composition should give pleasure to every hophead: Centennial, Columbus, Chinook и Amarillo - more than 15 kilos of that magical ingredient were used and added to boiler, mash tun and fermentation tank. Nevertheless, the beer is quite balanced.

This recipe was first homebrewed by our brewmaster and was the golden medal winner at "Brewer Day 2011" contest in a "Bitterness Unit" category. A bit later it was brewed together with our friends from St. Petersburg brewery Knightberg.

Red Machine IPA became a golden medal winner in "Ale" category at the contest "Brewer's Pride" taking place as a part of the First All-Russian Conference of Beer, Cider- and Mead-Producers organized by National Union of Beer and Drink producers in March 2014.

Samhain beer is first brewed on November, 1st, hence the name meaning the Celtic New Year celebrated at this day. We were planning to brew American pale ale which is however quite close to its original and more traditional style - English pale ale: balanced session beer which you can drink all the evening over warm conversation with close friends. We have looked into the history of APA style and found a compromise - we've brewed a version of APA relevant to the period when this style was born (70-80th years of 20th century), when American brewers wished to create something similar to British bitters but due to the limited access to British hops they had to use local varieties. Samhain APA is not an extreme beer - it is very drinkable and has very delicate aroma and taste. It's a beer for every day with bright amber colour and pleasant aroma of citrus, formed by American hops varieties Amarillo and Cascade added at the latest stages of boiling and dry hopping.

Very light body, dryness and certain bitterness in taste and aftertasting - what else is required for long evening?

Classic English porter fermented with ale yeasts brewed with special smoked malt. Smoked porters are extremely popular among the US craft brewers but almost absent on European beer market. Smoked malt used in such a beer is usually smoked by beech or peat - we decided to use truly Russian wood - the birch. We have ordered a special version of smoking machine for malts specifically and used wood chips to create a very special handcrafted grains. We have created a distinctive beer as a result: deep black colour, rich foam, aroma of coffee and smoke and sweety-smoky taste. Bright bitterness in the finish emphasized the impression from this complex beer.

We invite you to meet with smoked porters!

Beer brewed in a style getting more and more popular during last years - saison or farmhouse ale, traditionally produced in south regions of Belgium and north France throughout last several centuries. Until recently this style was brewed in countrysides in autumn for further consumption in summer during farm work - hence the naming. We have brewed this version of saison with freshly crushed black peppercorns to emphasize the bright spicy aroma contributed by special yeasts. Beer has a light-golden colour and rich fine-dispersed foam. Flower and fruit aroma with distinctive hop and peeper notes. Taste is a bit spicy too with grasses and flowers on the mouth, aftertaste is powered by hops bitterness. Body is very light which makes this beer very drinkable and delightful - this is the result of special saison yeast work.

This version of our farmhouse ale we dedicate to the wonderful season of the year - summer!

Black Sails - the beer brewed in a very contradictory style. The contradiction is in the name of the style - Black IPA or "Black India Pale Ale". The history of this style is not very long - it started just a few years ago. It all started in US and doesn't have any connection to India despite the name. The authors of the style tried to brew a beer which was very similar to IPA in terms of aroma and taste but had a deep black colour. The problem which the brewer encountered was that dark malts used to brew dark beer tend to add a coffee-chocolate-burnt flavours and aromas - the characteristics usually not associated with real IPA. Our beer has a distinctive aroma of citruses, tropical fruits, lemon, mango and a bit of pines, having a dry bitter taste full of hops. And a very very light touch of chocolate. But if you drink it with you eyes closed it would be very challenging to discover what is the colour of the beer - black beer is usually associated with porters and stouts. The name sends us to those years when Caribbeans were full of pirates, most of them were from England.

So you are welcome to taste our pirate ale!

This beer is brewed specifically for the short-movie festival 'shnit', taking place in Moscow for the first time this year from 8th to 12th of October.

The limited edition of this beer was naturally coloured with beetroot juice before bottling to give the pink colour to the beer.

Blond is a light pale ale which is a traditional and day-to-day beer so much appreciated in Belgium and territories nearby. "Day-to-day" nature of this beer implies that almost every brewery in the country produces the beer in this style. This beer is characterised by of course very pale colour, quite low (in Belgian understanding of the question) alcohol content, perfect drinkability and wonderful fruity aroma given by a special strain of yeasts from Belgium region. We used a bit of candy sugar to give a specific 'Belgian' nature and texture and flavouring hue. This is not a beer for hopheads, it doesn't have an extreme or even non-extreme bitterness, however it's still very tasty and appealing.

You won't be left untouched by this beer!
