SIMPLE THINGS FERMENTATIONS
Tradition. Innovation. Quality. And doing things a bit differently.
THE BIG IDEAS SERIES
The first range of beers available from Simple Things Fermentations
The Big Ideas Series is how it all begins - around twenty different beers exploring a wide range of styles. Expect to see Twisted Pilsner, Strong Golden Ale, Sparkling Ale, Foreign Extra Stout, Scottish Light, Spruce Tip Saison and more.
The focus is on quality throughout. The beer is brewed in small batches using the very best ingredients. Everything is hand packaged and we re-ferment in the bottle over two weeks.
The two beers below are available now in some of the best bottles shops and bars in Glasgow and Edinburgh, with distribution further afield planned for the coming weeks and months.
BIG IDEAS SERIES 01 EUROPEAN PALE ALE
330ml bottle, 5.0% ABV
The craft beer revolution arguably began when American homebrewers took the British Pale Ale and evolved it into something new by amplifying hop flavours. This European Pale Ale heads back across the Atlantic to combine British, German and Slovenian malt and hops along with a Norwegian farmhouse yeast strain, producing a well balanced beer that delivers those big, fruity New World flavours along with serious drinkability.
BIG IDEAS SERIES 02 SMOKED RYE PORTER
330ml bottle, 6.0% ABV
The chocolatey, roasty dark grains of a porter marry with rye spiciness and a wisp of smoke to produce a beer of unmistakable character. Heavily laden with malts from the peerless Weyermann maltings in Bamberg, Germany, this beer brings warmth and comfort to dark, chilly nights. Pull a chair up to the fire, find some good cheese and enjoy.
