North X Ren Min Collab Beers!
Late last year we hooked up one of our favourite UK breweries, North Brewing Co. with Singapore based Ren Min. They operate hawker stalls in famous food spots; Maxwell Food Centre and Old Airport Road. Recently they had a fresh new look and started their journey into the brewing world.
Their first two sets of brews went down pretty well in Singapore so it was a pleasure to hook them up with the well versed North.
The result was two delicious beers;
North x Ren Min IPA is a cross continental banger! A classic North IPA base, fluffy and smooth and dry hopped with a blend of US Mosaic, UK Mystic and NZ Moutere. The result is juicy IPA with a lasting, dry sherbert finish! Upfront fuzzy mango and tart kiwi, rounded sweet raspberry on the mid notes with a fresh pine and zesty lemon finish! A journey in flavour as long as the stretch across the continents this hop bill heralds from!
North x Ren Min Triple Fruited Gose (Rhubarb, Blackberry, Raspberry). Rhubarb takes the stage with its indistinguishable drying tartness and crisp green apple, green grape flavour. Moving through comes Blackberry with another hit of drying tartness but with a banknote of sweetness and complimentary earthy bitterness and finishing comes a zip of juicy and umptious floral raspberry. The colour is an almost luminous purple!
We've run out of the TFG in cans here but you can still grab some if you are lucky at Ren Min or there will be plenty more where that came from on taps near you!
