Homegrown Hops

We recently dipped our toes into the world of hop-farming, working closely with a Hatton farmer on dwarf Pioneer variety trials. We also called on the expertise of Sandra Gordon & Euan Caldwell from The James Hutton Institute during this process. The James Hutton Institute carried out a four year trial (2014 - 2018) to determine the feasibility of Scottish hops as a viable commercial crop. We look to use this research to inform the six°north homegrown hop programme going forward.

six°north x Donzoko collab

Today we had Hartlepool’s finest Donzoko in the house to brew a collab. Donzoko main man Reece really started making waves last year with the release of the excellent Northern Helles. He has just started contract brewing in London with Gypsy Hill so you can expect to see a lot more of his superb beers.

We brewed a hoppy Pilsner together utilising two of our favourite German hop varieties (Mandarina Bavaria and Saaz).

SPIRITS AT SIX°NORTH

Beer is what we do. It is what we love and what makes us tick. But it isn’t the only drink we love. Our bars stock a huge range of things that aren’t beer. We have spent time creating drinks lists that cover all corners of the world and as many styles as we can fit on our shelves and in our fridges.

HALE BREWING: MEET THE BEER

We’re changing up the format of Meet the Brewer events at our bars. We feel that the format is a little tired and has run it’s course for us at six°north. So we’ve decided to freshen things up...

…Going forward we will host Meet the Beer events where our guest brewers will present three quick-fire tastings on the night! Each tasting will start with a question and the brewery will answer with one of their beers! We want an approach which encourages customer interaction, giving more of an insight into breweries and the stories behind their beers. Tastings will be free of charge and will be booked on a first come, first served basis.
Meet the Beer. The answer to the question is always beer!
