No really, we’re being deadly serious. It’s always been a running joke that we should produce a Best Bitter, often getting a chuckle from the team whenever it’s mentioned. With it now being a full calendar year since some of us have been to the pub though, we all agreed that one of the things we’ve missed most throughout this whole lockdown period has been the familiar warmth of a pint of cask bitter. Whilst we’re not going as extreme as racking off a load of casks, we are confident enough in our own abilities as a brewery now that we are comfortable producing a style of beer that, whilst not dripping in insane dry-hopping rates, gives that familiarity of the pub that is within literal touching distance. Letting the malt lead here, we’ve gone for small additions of Cascade and East Kent Goldings for a pleasant bitterness, and fermented out with SO4 for a little bit of haze to remind that this is definitely Polly’s.
