Cloudwater S/S18 Range - NOW AVAILABLE Cloudwater

Modern Seasonal Beer From Manchester

Cloudwater change their can designs like the seasons, quite literally! Not only are Cloudwater Brew Co. genuinely in love with the concept of seasonality, but they’re also committed to weaving it into as many areas of the brewery as possible. If you’re unfamiliar with these Manchester titans, then I’d highly advise you pay attention. One of their core aims is to showcase the ebb and flow of time through the use of seasonal ingredients, while also marking each seasonal shift with a fresh range and a new artist.


Goodbye Winter, Hello Summer

We’ve recently waved goodbye to their Autumn/Winter 2017 artist; the mysterious SHRILLER with their intense, often stormy labels, and welcomed Louise Sheeran with her summer-drenched tones. Cloudwater’s resident branding wranglers; Textbook Studio, have also breathed a fresh breath of design air into the label layout, shifting focus away from the brewery name and towards the artwork.

Gone is 'Cloudwater' from the front of the cans, while the understated logo remains, and dry hop intensities have joined the party. They aim to give us drinkers the clearest insight possible into their brewing methods, which is why you’ll find the yeast, malt, hops, serving temperature and ‘hops fade fast’ advice clearly detailed on the reverse of each can. They’ve helpfully gone so far as to break the hops down into aroma and bittering additions. This is a far better indicator of how the beer will taste, compared to any old-school colour description or tiny jar of beer sat on a bar.

NEW IN: Helles Mandarin, Small Citra Mosaic Pale and IPL Cashmere https://craftybeercans.co.uk/new-in

Fresh Cans

If you’ve been keeping your eye on our Twitter, Facebook or Instagram you’ll have seen we’ve recently hopped over to the brewery and collected a few cases of their latest releases. You can take a look at the Cloudwater section of the shop to explore their latest releases and a selection of their other cans.


On The Shop

First up from their Spring/Summer 2018 range is Helles Mandarina (4.8%), this crisp number does what it says on the can, it’s a Helles with a light touch of Belgian Mandarina Bavaria aroma hops added to create delicate citrus flavour profile.

Next up is Small Citra Mosaic Pale (2.9%) which is refreshing and low in strength, yet full bodied and bold flavoured. This Small Pale Ale was fermented with (that) London Fog yeast, for its residual sweetness and rich fruity ester profile.

Finally we managed to nab some IPL Cashmere (6%) featuring a 12g/L dry hop charge of new season Cashmere. We can confirm these hops are 100% not wooly, instead they provide melon and lime notes to complement the clean presentation of Bock yeast.

All their cans are 440ml and they’re totally vegan friendly, so here’s to a Spring/Summer of tasty craft beer. Our verdict on Cloudwater's modern seasonal beer - it's blinding!
