"The Boss" rides again... and other stories.

Yes, you heard it here first! 

"The Boss" was the original collab between Gazza and Pixie Spring, brewed in the cellar of the Wheatsheaf in Llantrisant, back in 2012 and if truth be told was a bit of a dog's dinner of a recipe using whatever hops we could blag at the time!

Well, after a few rebrews, Gazza reckons he's got it where he wants it and we're ready to give Boss another try; the malts are kept simple, the hops are mainly Chinook and Citra, and it's just a straightforward pale ale with big fruity hop flavours just like it was supposed to be the first time around...

The week after that we'll be brewing yet another new beer, but this one will be in a new style for us; American Amber!  This is a variation of red ale albeit with more of an amber/tawny colour than red (which the name kind of suggests) and will be loaded with big bolshy US hops to impart a bruising lupulin assault.... "We Come in Peace" definitely doesn't!
