Special Batch Brews

In addition to our core range, we will have a bunch of limited edition special batch brews on rotation.

There'll always be something new to try at Common People! 

Here's what's on tap at the moment;

ANKLE BITER CALIFORNIA COMMON 

3.8% ABV

Paying homage to founders’ eight kids who have clocked some serious hours at the brewery while their parents worked furiously to open the doors, the Ankle Biter is also a tribute to our fearless GM who suffered a nasty burn on his leg when brewing this beer.

This full body California Common (Steam Ale) is brewed with lager yeast and fermented at ale temperatures. The result offers the formation of a big ester profile. Late hopping of Amarillo produces citrusy orange and grapefruit notes on the nose and palate. Big on the residual malt and bitterness you would be forgiven for thinking this is a full strength beer but at an ABV of 3.8%, you can head back to the bar for another.

HAPPY SOUR

3.5% ABV

There’s no better combination of words than “happy” and “hour”. So we’ve dedicated our latest special batch brew to this winning time of day. Raise a glass to our newest brew on the block, our Happy Sour.

This is a wheat based Berliner-Weisse style sour - a kettle sour where the lactobacillus is added over a two to three day brewing process until a favourable lactic acid profile is produced. This creates a beer with a crisp finish and juicy acidity. Its aroma has a slight lemony fruitiness and is reminiscent of sourdough bread. In future, our Happy Sour will lend itself to the additions of seasonal fruit harvested from the local area, so be sure to keep watch on our latest brews news!
