Suma 'beer' time and the living is easy…
We’re super-proud of our range of organic beers and rightly so – six very different bottle-conditioned ales, each carrying the CAMRA mark and made locally by a master brewer, just a hop, skip and a jump away from Suma HQ. They're perfected in the Pennines and spot-on for summertime supping! The only problem is - which one will you try first?
To help you decide, here’s a little bit more about them all.
A rich, red-brown beer, with a full and rounded body. Made using three complementary hops, including Challenger and East Kent Goldings, this beer is crisp and fruity with a spice and lemon aroma which combine to give a soft and delicate finish.
Long Wall Mouse
A bright, yellow beer with a pleasant taste and a smooth finish. Long Wall Mouse is a surprisingly gentle beer that's lightly fruity and spicy. Made with top fermenting yeast, Pacific Gem and First Gold hops, this is most definitely an ale not a lager, however it is the ideal alternative for the more discerning lager drinker.
A white hazy beer with aromas of coriander and lemon. Mytholm Mist is refreshing with a fresh, classic finish. Brewed using hops originating from Hallertau an area of Bavaria between Munich and Nurnberg, this is an ideal thirst quenching summer beer.
A rich black stout containing wheat malt, crystal malt and chocolate malt mixed with oats and wheat. Penumbra has a rich and creamy roasted flavour with aromas of orange, citrus and berry.
Blackstone Yorkshire Moor Ale
A unique beer named after a unique place. Bleak and moody, Blackstone Edge is a gritstone escarpment on the boundary overlooking Lancashire in one direction and Yorkshire in the other. This is a silky-smooth and malty moorland ale, made using peat malt and heather. It is ruby in colour, with rugged, smoky flavours of smoky peat and heather.
Erringden Light Pale + Ginger
Brewed using soft Yorkshire water from high in the Yorkshire hills close to Erringden Moor, a tussocky and windswept place overlooking the River Calder. Records from 1277 indicate the region was originally given the Scandinavian name Ayrykedene, meaning Eric’s Valley. Light and fresh with a hint of ginger and citrus, this pale ale makes a delicious aperitif and is equally enjoyable with spicy food.
So you will all now know which one to try first and if you still can’t make up your mind, we do a mixed case!
