The long awaited StubbleStag premium lager is back and joined by a new Norfolk sister lager called DewHopper, slightly lighter but no less tasty.
After opening last year and brewing our first batch of StubbleStag we were delighted at its popularity – with some drinkers being surprised that it was a lager with serious taste.
As soon as we were able, we got a second brew underway. It can’t be rushed as we sampled and checked along the way in a brewing process lasting several weeks during which the taste and flavours develop. At the same time we created DewHopper, following the same length of process, but creating a lager with a lighter taste.
StubbleStag Premium lager 5% – pours to a medium gold colour, with a hoppy bitterness and a crisp finish. Brewed with malt from the finest Maris Otter barley and five hops: Challenger, Goldings, Hallertau, Saaz and Styrian Goldings.
DewHopper Norfolk lager 3.8% – pours to a light gold colour with a crisp, hoppy finish. Brewed with malt from the finest Maris Otter barley and three hops: Hallertau, Saaz and Styrian Goldings.
If you are a follower of StubbleStag or want to give it or DewHopper a try for the first time, it’s now available in 500ml bottles from some of the outlets shown on our web site www.norfolkbrewhouse.co.uk/pubs-shops-i-5.html#offtotheshops It will also be available at the markets and fairs we are going along to this year www.norfolkbrewhouse.co.uk/events-i-7.html
For those who want to try StubbleStag on draught, pop along to The King’s Head in Holt www.kingsheadholt.org.uk/new/ where you can also enjoy King’s Head Gold, another lager brewed by us for the pub.
We hope it’s been worth the wait?
