New Beers @ #CS!

From our Church Street Emporium

Spring is very nearly here and we’ve done a bit of spring cleaning here at CS! A fresh lovely range of bottled bevvies to rev up your taste buds!!

unnamedWe are more than pleased to have Vedett IPA in the chiller, along with the rest of the range Extra White and Extra Blonde! The inventors of Indian Pale Ale may have originally added extra hops to help it survive the long voyage to India, but Vedett just do it for the taste! Every drop as thirst-quenching as the last, Vedett IPA offers an explosion of flavoursome bitterness that increases with intensity towards the finish, tempered by an unparalleled velvety smoothness resulting in a very accessible taste. Fresh, fruity and floral notes give way to touches of caramel sweetness, while its superb, lingering aftertaste continues to tantalise the tastebuds long after.

Another bostin’ arrival is ‘The Full Nelson’! This ‘Maori Pale Ale’ came together after months of experimentation with a very unique hop – Nelson Sauvin from New Zealand. Strong grape flavours are complemented by the sweet Munich malt, making this beer crisp and refreshing.

So if you’re after a post-work beverage or are just stopping by, pop in try these beauts.

A New Kind of Craft Fair at the #JQ

From our Jewellery Qtr. Emporium

Three_Logo

We’re really excited to be hosting a different type of craft fair at our #JQ emporium this May. Three Thinking Collective is a group of 3 small business owners who have come together to create and run a truly great set of craft events in Birmingham, the emphasis being on the ‘craft’ – all those who would like a stall will be expected to have made/crafted their products themselves.

This is the first thing we’ve done of this kind and we’re really looking forward to seeing lots of different and new creative types that we have on our doorstep in JQ or further afield. We will ensure we have a license too, so that you can have a glass of wine whilst perusing all those lovely things!

So, if you want to get involved and have a stall at this event on Thursday May 14th from 4pm-8pm, then all you need to do is send your website info/pics of your craft to the 3 lovely ladies at Three Thinking Collective to their email -threethinkingcollective@gmail.com and they will be in touch!

March’s Guest Filter Coffee

From our Urban Coffee HQ

photo 2For this month’s guest filter we are staying in Central Africa with a fully washed Suke Quto from Ethiopia.

The Suke Quto farm is located in the Oromia region of Ethiopia at 1,800–2,200 masl (metres above sea level). For this washed coffee the cherries are cleaned in spring water and then de-pulped. The coffee beans are placed in fermentation tanks for 36-72 hours (depending on the weather conditions) to remove the mucilage and dried on raised African beds for 9-13 days.

Suke Quto offers a stunning sensory experience. The aromas are of punchy lemon verbena and juniper.

Brewed as espresso those notes evolve to deliver big intense mandarin orange flavours with delicate black grape, ripe deep plum and a medium round body. As a filter coffee expect notes of sweet orange, vibrant bergamot tea, and juicy plum with a clean finish and medium body.

We are launching Monday 2nd March so pop along to any of our emporiums to try it out!
