.... because the sharks are back!
Our very popular extra-pale ale "Sharks against Surfers" is being rebrewed again this week due to popular demand (basically, Gazza likes it) and so lots of lovely hops have been ordered to make it happen including Chinook, Centennial and Galaxy. The original highly amusing premise behind this brew was that the hops came from areas where sharks and surfers are in the same environment, but sadly we still can't get any hops from Newquay and South African hops have been bought up, so I hear, by lovely cuddly AmBev.
Anyhow, the name comes from a track by Railpunk pioneers Eastfield and goes something like this...
Keep off the sand, this is not your land - sharks against surfers
Stay out of the sea, keep the waters clean - sharks against surfers
Don't ride the waves, you'll meet an early grave - sharks against surfers
Stop your tricks, you'll get ripped to bits - sharks against surfers
