In normal times we fill mini casks and polypins direct from the fermenting vessel. 2020 has been very far from normal and for the first time ever in Swannay's 16 year history we have not brewed any beer in December.
We filled casks and canned beer that'd we'd brewed in November at the start of the month but no grains have been through the mash tun for weeks now. Sad times.
This has left us low on mini casks and polypins but with some casks left that would normally go to pubs.
For our freshest casks, for orders placed by 9am Tuesday 22nd December, we are able to transfer from cask to mini cask and polypin.
NOTE: WE WILL FILL THE MINI CASKS AND POLYPINS "BRIGHT", THAT MEANS WITHOUT YEAST. THIS WILL HOPEFULLY MEAN THE SETTLING TIME OF THE CONTAINERS IS LESS THAN USUAL BUT ALSO THAT THE CONDITION (THE FIZZINESS) WILL BE LESS THAN USUAL. THE BEER WILL NOT BE FIZZY, PLEASE BE AWARE OF THIS. WE ALSO RECOMMEND DRINKING ASAP.
Order by 9am Tuesday 22nd December for delivery within Orkney on Wednesday 23rd December.
