Collaborations : Modernisme and Cherry Cola Vice - Magic Rock Brewing
A busy couple of months collaborating with our good friends have come into fruition, this Friday sees the release of not one, but two beers. First up is the return of the ‘big lad’ 500ml cans in the form of the NaparBier collaboration and then secondly the continuation of our ‘vice’ series with Engine Engine No 9 Cherry Cola Vice, a three way collaboration with J Wakefield and Slim Pickens.
Both will be available in keg pours and cans from 1pm this Friday 29th at 1pm, direct from magic Rock Tap. Both cans will be on our webshop from 9.30am on Monday 2nd October.
Modernisme 6.0% – IPA
Brewed in collaboration with our friends from Naparbeer. Juan and Beinat from NaparBier joined us a few weeks back to brew this fruity and refreshing IPA full of Spanish sunshine. The beer has loads of Mango and Apricot in the aroma/flavour with a smooth body, subtle bitterness and great drinkability. In case you’re wondering about the name, ‘Modernisme’ also known as ‘Catalan modernism’, is the historiographic denomination given to an art, literature (and now beer?) movement.
