To champion the indie beer shop sector and highlight the vibrancy they bring to the high street, their communities, to the local economy and support they give to breweries this beer collaboration was suggested by Sheffield based beer shop Hop Hideout’s owner Jules Gray to a group of like-minded retailers; with a resounding yes. The collaborative beer is a riff on one of Donzoko’s core beers and is aptly named Indie Graft.
The twist on Graft sees dry-hopping with Nelson Sauvin variety which has a white grape and gooseberry like quality boosting the profile achieved from the fermentation with Beaujolais wine yeast and kicking the abv up to 4.7%. This vinous version of Donzoko’s hoppy Belgian inspired pale, Graft, will be available exclusively through independent beer retailers from early July 2020.
On Saturday 18th July, 7.30pm, the group welcomes everyone to raise a beer and a collective cheer to their local community and beer shop. Purchase Indie Graft as locally as you can and join in the free online tasting with Donzoko Brewing, Hop Hideout and indie beer shop friends.
