On Saturday the award winning Deva Craft beer opened their brewery doors for beer loving folk. Not only did they serve up a smashing selection of their hop-tastc ales (along with three new, one-off summer beers they recently brewed) the punters who flocked to the brewery enjoyed hand-crafted pork pies from Powells and rides from Deva TukTuk. The afternoon also saw the Fortune Sellers rock up a tune or two.
The weather certainly favoured those who made their way to Sandycroft, the Deva HQ. The sunshine made the delicious beer even more so, and many a pints were consumed. Bar staff, pub landlords and punters alike all came together to enjoy some top tipple along with some glorious grub and solid entertainment.
For those who wanted, the brewers themselves were at hand for brewery tours and to talk them through the different beers available. But for others, just sitting in the sun supping their beer was quite enough.
Summer Rye, 4,3%: A punchy seasonal ale, well balanced but hoppy as hell. Bitter finish.
Citra’d, 4,8%: Juicy sessionable beer, perfect for sitting in the sun. Great tropical flavours.
Flightless, 4,5%: Beautifully balanced brew, packing a punch of NZ hops.
There’s not really a better way to spend your Saturday than chilling in the sunshine, listening to top tunes while supping on some superior ale. Pies and tuktuk rides are a definite bonus. Needless to say we enjoyed our stay and will definitely attend the next event. Cheers!
