Dark Star X Unbarred – UnReal

UnReal
4.7% Session New England IPA
40 IBU

Both UnBarred and Dark Star started life in Brighton & Hove. Now all grown up and brewing in rural Sussex, these two imaginative breweries have hooked up to bring us this extra special brew for Brighton & Hove Beer Week.

UnReal is a full-bodied session NEIPA, generously hopped with a mix of US (Crystal, Simcoe), Australian (Galaxy) and NZ hops (Nelson Sauvin). This is tropical fruits in a glass!

 

Unbarred X Pharmacie Coffee – Redeye Sour

Redeye Sour

4.5% Coffee Sour

UnBarred Brewery started life in the kitchen of a small flat in Hove. Now one of the most respected brewers in Sussex, founder Jordan Mower now brews out of Missing Link in East Sussex.
For this extra special Brighton & Hove Beer Week brew UnBarred have teamed up with Pharmacie Coffee Roasters in Hove to create the perfect sour for a sunny day. Look out for it in cans across the city!
