Last month, we had the pleasure of hosting Mark Tranter - Burning Sky’s Head Brewer to the Beer Merchants Tap for our first trade tasting of the year. He guided us through six of Burning Sky's beers, explaining what makes Burning Sky beers so delicious. In his own words, Burning Sky is "The dream of a long term brewer with a love of both punchy hop forward pales and of the beautiful Belgian beer tradition." We also tasted the delicious Huis - Belgian pale with noble hops and grains of paradise, brewed in collaboration with Wild Beer Co and Duration for The Beer Merchants Tap

As you know, The Beer Merchants Tap is also home to our Blendery project, Good Company, we currently have 21 barrels in situ, filled between May 24th - June 6th with beers from Burning Sky, Wild Beer Co. and Harbour; all of which are happily fermenting away and forming their pellicles, ready to bed down until the first releases are planned. Mark Tranter was kind enough to try the barrels with us and it was great to get an expert such as Mark to help us with this project. To be continued...
