Local Brewery News – News From Lincoln Green Brewery

Last issue I eluded to a big announcement we were working towards and by now, many of you will already know what that was all about – in case you’ve not heard, we’re now joint owners of The Falcon Inn at Canning Circus with Tina Draper of ‘Fellows Morton and Clayton.’
We’re really keen to return The Falcon Inn to its former glory and will be using it to showcase our own beers together with guests from near and far. I love the feel of the place; even now, in its neglected state, it has a welcoming atmosphere – memories of many happy times in the past I guess. These happy memories got me to thinking about the history of the pub and I’m currently researching local archives to find old photographs and facts about the place.
If you know anything or have any old photographs of The Falcon, please get in touch! To keep up to date with our progress on building works in the run up to our October opening, please visit the new website: www.thefalconinn.co.uk where you’ll find a regular blog update.
To all things Lincoln Green now, we’re currently enjoying the summer sunshine with our summer seasonal, ‘Village Green’ – this 4.2% pale beauty will be representing us at this year’s Great British Beer Festival down in London.
As I write, we also eagerly await the arrival of the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge’s first born so that we can launch ‘Heir Born’ a classic English Best Bitter at 4.3%. It’s a deep brown malty beauty with a lingering bitter finish from the all English hops – fit for a future King or Queen…!
Our cold store has been extended and we’ve decided to change one of our conditioning tanks into a small 5 brewers barrel fermenter – this will enable us to brew short brew lengths of one off beers; Much of this will be experimenting with higher ABV beers that will be for the bottle conditioned market. Watch out for a ‘Sheriff IPA Export’ at 8% and a ‘Tuck 69’ at 6.9%.
Here’s hoping that this issue of Nottingham Drinker finds you enjoying the summer sunshine in a fantastic beer garden with a pint of Lincoln Green!
