Magic Rock Brewing
Magic Rock Brewing Co. is the result of three people’s passion for beer. Brothers Richard and Jonny Burhouse aided by head brewer Stuart Ross were inspired to start the brewery by their love of great beer and the burgeoning U.S craft beer scene in particular. “We make beer the same but different, conjured for flavour; beer which will inspire and delight but above all taste great. Welcome to the Magic…”
A softly salty & citric 4.4% soft, sessionable sour. The sourness is tart and soft but well balanced by the salt component and a mild sweetness from the dark crystal. A healthy addition of lemondrop hops from Germany gives a non offensive, harmonious bitter element to the beer finishing & rounding off with a subtle citrus and earthy bite from the sumac.
Things move quickly in the beer world and Magic Rock’s latest pale ale/IPA hybrid is designed to showcase some of the newer hop varieties which work so well in modern hop forward beers. Pale malt, a little wheat, a little crystal malt, low bitterness and then six different hops! Super fruity, super ripe, super juicy and super drinkable. Breathe it in!
A full bodied, decadently smooth coffee beer in collaboration with local roaster Dark Woods. 7 different malts combine with 7 different coffees added at 3 different points during the brew to create a sweet toffee, rich fruit and chocolate depth, accented with notes of vanilla, and hazelnut. A coffee beer designed with texture, aroma and deliciousness in mind, brewed to celebrate locality and a shared philosophy in creative quality.
Traditionally, the dark arts are practiced with the intent of inflicting pain, suffering and all manner of ghastly misfortunes upon a victim. Magic Rock’s Dark Arts Stout may well hail from the dark side, but grasping a can of the supernatural brew in your hand couldn’t be more enjoyable. Blending four malts to produce a decadent and indulgent elixir compounded by its luxurious mouthfeel, this spicy stout bubbles with smooth chocolate and zingy berry flavours before disappearing down your gullet with a lingering roasted bitterness.
West Coast = best coast. At least that’s what Magic Rock believe when it comes to unapologetically hop forward American Pale Ales. Scale sensory heights and a walk a tightrope of taste, as mango, lychee and grapefruit hit you with a lip-smackingly awesome wallop. A smoothly composed malt base evens out this perky equation, safely bringing you back down to earth with a crisp and bitter finish.
Prepare for Rapture! A full-bodied, heavenly hoppy red beer assembled from 5 types of malts and 6 types of hops that makes for a truly elating experience. Uplifting aromas of grapefruit and pine combine with pronounced orange and citrus flavours to slice through a deeply rich and malty body. A dry and crisp finish offers your taste buds a final shot at redemption, before you go to heaven and back with this red ale saviour.
Magic Rock’s take on the Leipziger Gose, brewed initially as a collab with Danish master brewer Anders Kissmeyer. Gooseberries, Sea-Buckthorn and Sea Salt are tossed into the mix adding some fine complexity to this lightly tart, refreshing Gose.
An explosion of mango, lychee and lip-smacking grapefruit flavours, Magic Rock’s punchy grapefruit version of their tribute to the American West Coast will knock your socks off. Walk a tightrope of taste with this dynamic brew from the Huddersfield based brewery.
One punchy punchbowl full of fruity goodness, Cannonball exudes a bounty of tropical and resinous hops finishing with a puckering bitter bite that’ll leave you wondering where your mouth’s gone.
