Yesterday we took a visit to our sponsors – Rusty Prop Brewery, to find out more about this brand new local micro brewery that started last year.
We met with Si (above), who is one part of the beer making duo (also run by Steve), who started Rusty Prop last year. They started by homebrewing, and now have a unit in Romsey where they brew a couple of kegs a week for beer festivals and local pubs. The pair both work in aviation, and so inspired their branding and beer names. What is clear from spending some time at the brewery, is that the guys are truly passionate about beer making, as well as supporting the local community.
We also got to have a taste of their first brew – Flugtag, which is a delicious, slightly carbonated, biscuity caramel flavoured pale ale / lager. We can’t wait to share this one with fellow PubHackers!
We also got to have a taste of their prototype IPA ‘Grass Strip’, which is a lovely rich tasting (and strong!) ale.
Want to know more?
If you want to find out more about these guys and where you can find their delicious brews on tap (or bottled), take a look on their website.
We’re really proud to have Rusty Prop on board as official PubHack sponsors, and every PubHacker will receive a free 500ml bottle of their Flugtag pale ale to take home after the event. Please do let the guys know what you think after you’ve tried it!
