Spitting Feathers 3.6% pale refreshing ale is another ale in our portfolio that showcases UK Cascade.  Why do we love Cascade so much?  It adds such splendid floral, grapefruit hop character to an beer, perhaps gentler than its American cousin but nonetheless redolent of New World hop varieties.  Herefordshire Pilgrim hops are added in the early boil.  We brew Spitting Feathers with a light malt load of Pale Maris Otter.

Our Spitting Feathers is a bit of a maverick.  How the recipe came about is a tale that can only be told as the sun goes down on a Tasting Day and even then it must only be whispered.  Speaking of Tasting Days, Spitting Feathers will feature at the 6th August edition of our popular open event.
