The British bitter has journeyed far. It has evolved. loyal to its balanced roots but more hop-forward this year's beer will be An extra special bitter amped-up to American proportions. All-British malts, all-American hops, a beer of bitter descent.
We are Natural Selection Brewing, and our beer will be descending on pubs and bars near you this July.
Natural Selection Brewing is a collaborative project between ourselves, four MSc students – Reade, Rich, Sarah and Sam – at Heriot-Watt University in Edinburgh, the International Centre for Brewing and Distilling, and renowned Edinburgh brewers Stewart Brewing.
The beer style changes each year. To date there has been a red ale, 'Finch', a summer wheat beer, 'Anorak', a New World Saison, 'Origin', and an all-British IPA, 'Mutiny on the Beagle'. The project continually evolves, and is now in its fifth year, and consistently delivers great beer.
