Located on Anerley Road, Crystal Palace, around a mile from the brewery itself in Gipsy Hill, their new micro pub will be selling all the Gipsy Hill core range and showcasing their special brews. All of this alongside offering a rotating drinks menu to the local community and craft beer lovers across the capital.
The bar itself has been hand crafted by Gipsy Hill’s head brewer from a five-meter-long piece of Douglas Fir timber.The south London venue was previously a hair salon, and has been transformed in to a cosy and inviting micro pub that looks like it has been a part of the local furniture for years.
Gipsy Hill make a core range of full flavoured, medium strength beer and Michael Huddart, Marketing Manager for Gipsy Hill said – Ã¢â‚¬Å“The Douglas Fir is an extension of our brewing ethos. It’s a place you can drink and talk to people. Our focus is to showcase some of the great produce being made right now. We love our local community; without them this project may have fallen at the first consultation hurdle. It’s been important for us to create a space that captures this.
The Gipsy Hill core beers:
Beatnik Ã¢â‚¬â€œ Beatnik is the flagship, cunningly light pale ale that showcases all US hops above an uncomplicated malt base, the intention being to demonstrate how much flavor can be achieved in a sub-four percent beer
Dissident Ã¢â‚¬â€œ Dissident’s roasted malt flavor dominates. Some chocolate sweetness resides behind the earthy richness. There’s some spice and molasses from the pilgrim and it signs off with a dry bitterness.
Hepcat Ã¢â‚¬â€œ Hepcat’s strong line-up of Mosaic, Citra, Equinox and Motueka hops combine to produce an intensely tropical-citrus hit. It’s inviting orange hue speaks of what’s to come.
Southpaw Ã¢â‚¬â€œ For Southpaw, they chose the hoppier end of the amber spectrum, once again using all-American hops and plenty of them. The malt composition is fairly complex, bringing sweetness roasted notes and overall balance
