It was one of those fortuitous days when the stars aligned, full sun beaming ☀️and a quick stop at Oedipus Brewing taproom on the north side of Amsterdam visiting the Carnivale Brettanomyces Homebrewers and Fermenters Market. We picked up our tasting glass and headed by pure luck to the first table we could get to (it was a bustling space filled with #wildfunky beer fiends!). The producer turned out to be Adrian Morales Maillo of Sobremesa Drinks and we hit it off straight away. He was passionate about his new business, fusing his Spanish roots in the Welsh countryside. Focusing on terroir-driven farmhouse beers and natural ciders. Whether you agree or disagree with the whole beer terroir 😉 Sobremesa are certainly leaning to the land and locality for their drinks. Using only British malts and hops but also incorporating Welsh ancient grains (Hen Gymro). They have even isolated a farmhouse yeast from the farm they’re situated on and it has been identified by the National Collection of Yeast Cultures. We loved trying them out in the Netherlands and it turned into a wonderful moment realising we’d be able to source them here in the UK for you lovely lot to try🤘 We have 2 ciders in 750mls plus 3 beers across bottle and can. From Welsh heritage single variety Perthyre and their orchard blend made with eating and cooking apples: Bramley, Ashmead Kernel, Rubinstep and Hereford Russets - both dry, naturally sparkling ciders. Farmhouse Pilsner, a German pilsner style lager brewed with British floor malt from Warminster Maltings, heritage flaked spelt from Craggs & Co and British hops: Boadicea and Jester. Fermented with Weihenstephan yeast. Farmers Pale Ale, a hoppy pale ale brewed with organic oats from Pimhill, heritage flaked spelt from Craggs & Co and British Hops: Olicana and Jester. Then generously dry hopped with Harlequin and Jester. Farmhouse Ale - Rosalind Yeast. A saison inspired beer brewed with ancient Welsh wheat Hen Gymro and Herefordshire hops: Goldings and Sovereign. Fermented with their house strain: Rosalind yeast, isolated from Racquety Farm in Hay-on-Wye. 👏🇪🇸🏴󠁧󠁢󠁷󠁬󠁳󠁿 #newproducer #HopHideout #Wales #Spain #rethinkcider #wildbeer
