Home brewing gets a bad rep. For many, the idea of a home brew remains a warm, sticky, BOOZY ale, fermenting away in someone’s cupboard under the stairs. The kind that leaves you screwing your face as if chewing a wasp soaked in Ethanol.

We know differently & we’ve seen the evidence since launching our UBREW event at the brewery in November 2018. Our open mic night for the local home brewing community if you will. Good or bad, we come together, share tales of sweat and tears, whilst of course… tasting beers.  Home brewing is no longer mop buckets of murky brown water and exploding milk bottles, but a science lab for students of beer, fully loaded with an arsenal of ‘beer kits’, allowing anybody to replicate some of their favourite beers from the comfort of their own homes.

That’s exactly how Matt Hales started. The winner of our most recent UBREW event, Matt was invited down to Purity to brew his award winning beer on our pilot kit last week. His chocolate vanilla stout (Sweet like Chocolate) blew our brew team away, describing it as ‘liquid chocolate cake.’

Matt is currently on a career break as a stay at home dad. The hardest job he’s ever had, but it has allowed Matt to refine his home brewing skills. Matt explained to us how he first got into home brewing.

“I first started brewing nearly 3 years ago, when my wife came home from the library with a home brew book. I was hooked very quickly and all the gear to start brewing was instantly ordered on Amazon. I didn’t take the usual route to home brewing like most people, by brewing from extract kits and progressing to all grain later, I just went straight to all grain brewing. The first beer I brewed was surprisingly good for a first attempt; it was a clone of Pliny the Elder by Russian river brewing, an 8% double IPA, one of the best hoppy IPAs from USA. I like most styles of beer, but really love hop forward beers.”

Last year Matt upgraded his home brewing setup to a 50L stainless all in one brewing system called The beer Torrent. He’s had a series of successful brews with this kit, including a several homebrew competitions.

Matt’s decision to brew his Chocolate & Vanilla stout was inspired by Tiny Rebels marshmallow porter, Stay Puft. “In my beer I gradually increased the chocolate and vanilla until I was happy with the flavour, and mouth feel. It’s actually only the 2nd stout I’ve ever made.”

Matt will be unveiling ‘Sweet Like Chocolate’ at our next UBREW event on 12th June, at Pure Craft Bar in Birmingham. Whether you want to enter your home brew to be judged by our brew team, or simply want to have a drink with some fellow beer enthusiasts, grab your free tickets at https://www.eventbrite.co.uk/e/ubrew-beer-club-tickets-62303225625 & claim your free taster of ‘Sweet Like Chocolate’.

Purity Brewing Co. is toasting international success again as the Warwickshire Brewer picked up a highly coveted trophy at this year’s International Brewing Awards Luncheon held at the Guildhall in London last night.

Director of Brewing Flo Vialan attended the ceremony in London expecting to collect the Gold Medal for Longhorn IPA and Bronze Medal for Saddle Black Purity won earlier in the year. However, there was a further pleasant surprise to come. As the overall champion winners were announced Purity’s Longhorn IPA which is named after the herd of cattle that feed on the brewery’s spent grain was named the overall Keg Ale Champion beating stiff competition from breweries across the UK and the world.

The International Brewing Awards are renowned across the industry as the very highest of standards, encouraging innovation and highlighting the best beers in the world. Winning a championship trophy is seen within the brewing industry as quite the coup considering elite brewers that enter.

The judging line up and process is unique within the industry. What differentiates the International Brewing Awards group is the unifying thread that the judging panel is made up entirely of commercially active industry professionals.

The stellar international panel see judges coming from as far and wide as Scandinavia in the north to New Zealand in the south and Japan in the east to countries across the Americas. This is the oldest beer and cider awards still running in the world. Its origins are based around the industry professionals of the day gathering to assess an array of entries and to reward the quality and commercial worth of the beer.

Founded on a working farm in 2005, Purity has gone from strength-to-strength over the years, with a broad range of beers and an array of national and international brewing awards. The brewery now employs over 40 people and has expanded its sales regions as far as Nottingham, Stoke-on-Trent, Bristol and London.

The Warwickshire based brewer also supports a range of local sports teams, music festivals and other regional events, as well as being an official partner of Wasps Rugby and Ricoh Arena.

Purity’s Founder & CEO, Paul Halsey, said: “Wow! What an unbelievable way to start the summer. We’re absolutely delighted and extremely proud of this achievement to be recognised on an international stage.”

He continued “Longhorn IPA is one of our most exciting beers and to see this winning the overall keg ale competition is brilliant. Since we launched the beer back in 2014 Longhorn has fast become a firm favourite and we are incredibly proud of how it has become an established staple on bars across Warwickshire. Huge thanks to our Puritans for their continual support of our business and of course, our beer!” Paul also noted “This is a real testament to Flo our Director of Brewing and the rest of the brew team. The skill and dedication they put into every pint of Purity is second to none and we are all incredibly proud to see this recognised on an international stage and voted the best amongst some truly excellent competition and great beers.”

Off the back of the recent success for Longhorn IPA both at the International Brewing Awards and SIBA Brewing Awards Purity has made its award winning keg ale now permanently available in cask.

Responsible for brewery tours and events, Pure Quality cellar training and our brewery shop, it could be said that John is the face and voice of Purity. For most that visit us here at Purity, John is the first person you meet upon arrival and embodies all that it is to be a Puritan with his infectious enthusiasm for our brewery. If you’ve been fortunate enough to attend a brewery tour, you’ll know that you walk away with a wealth of brilliant stories and fascinating facts you won’t find anywhere on Google.

So with this in mind, we thought it only right to sit and get to know John a little better.

So lets start with the most important question…. Favourite Beer?

Easy, Stella Artois (when it was 5.2%) 

On a serious note, Pure Gold has always been my favourite of Purity’s beers. Brilliant balance of premium malt and quality hops.

As I always explain to guests on tours, stripping away alcohol really exposes a brewers true skills and this is a masterful, full flavoured low ABV session beer. Best in class in my opinion.

What brought you to Purity?

I made the unusual jump from bikes to beer (probably the right way round to do it I guess) Having worked for Pashley Cycles in Stratford upon Avon for nearly 10 years a mutual friend of both Pashley and Purity saw a space for my brand engagement skills at the brewery.

I remember my first pint of Purity at an event in Alcester way back in 2006 and had enjoyed the beer ever since then. An opportunity to work for another premium and much loved local brand couldn’t go unmissed.

You’ve been here 4 years, what have you enjoyed the most about your time here?

(4 years 8 months actually). The beer! It’s all about the beer. I love sharing my enthusiasm for something that is relatively simple and natural to produce but can be made to shine and bring real joy when done with passion and character like Purity do.

Getting an award for the brewery tours and the great guest feedback through things like Trip Advisor is always nice personally but the work I do with trade accounts on Pure Quality cellar courses is the most satisfying. Getting publicans and their staff enthused about cask ale and making sure that with a few very simple hints and tips any pub can serve the beer at its very best. There really is no mystery to serving a Pure Quality Pint everytime. If I can do it, anyone can. Trust me.

Any funny stories from the events you’ve hosted?

They say you should never work with children or animals. The children we can avoid (over 18s only on the tours) but being based on a working farm means the animals can play their role in creating some unexpected experiences for our guests. Having all the farm dogs (3 black labs, 2 wippets, 2 collies and a daschund) bounce around the guests as we show them up to the brewery is always fun. Seeing peoples smiles when they see the real characters of the lawless goat, longhorn cattle or noisy cockerels  and it dawns on them that their favourite beer names are all based on true stories is a real treat.

Last week the ice was broken for one lucky job interviewee when Michael the sheep (warmed up in the farmhouse AGA when he was born on deaths door and now a farm pet) wandered into the tap room where he was having his meeting. I had to shoo him out and apologise. Hope he got the job!

Favourite fact that people may not realise about Purity?

UBU was a real pain in the arse and we have the pawprints at the brewery to prove it!

What would we find you doing away from Purity?

Teaching my little boy to cook as food is a big passion for me and I want to make sure he can show off his skills when he’s older. You’ll also catch me trying to spot hares in the local fields as they’re  my favourite animal or coaching the under 7’s at Stratford Rugby Club.

Our first stop doesn’t take us too far from the Brewery, with the The Barn at Berryfields. A family run restaurant with a fantastic story and familiar values…. Local, seasonal and sustainable.

So what happens when two brothers from the 4th generation of a farming family decide to step out of the farm and into the world of hospitality? Well in the case of Joe and Tom, after years away in the corporate world, they decided to return to the family business with a combination of new skills, experience and a whole new appreciation for the beautiful farm they call home!

Wedged just 5 miles from Birmingham airport and 6 miles from Coventry, lies The Barn at Berryfields. Multiple acres of stunning farmland belonging to the Barber Family for over 100 years. Starting with Joe and Tom’s Great Grandmother Lydia, the first lady to ride a motorcycle in Solihull(!), she set about creating an arable farm here in the heart of Warwickshire. It wasn’t until her son-in-law, Hartley, Joe and Tom’s Grandfather, took over the farm that an array of livestock were introduced.

Joe and Tom’s Father, Chris, then took over the farm at 16 and decided to specialise in pig farming. Breeding and selling them locally to butchers, before eventually opening their very own butchery circa 15 years ago crafting their very own bacon, sausages, pork pies and other goodies.

Only 7 years ago, Tom was working for Aldi  as an Area Manager and Joe in London as a Strategy Consultant in Financial Services, both a long way from their roots at Berryfields. Tom then made the decision to step back into the family business and worked exclusively on the farm for 3 years. After many late night conversations, Tom and Joe, and their parents Chris and Fiona, agreed that a restaurant is the natural next step for the business, utlising their own pork and local produce and before long the dream was realised. The restaurant was created within the old potato shed, enjoying picture postcard views over the stunning farm land, with local meat prepared in the on site butchery and most importantly a selection of great local beer to accompany it! So we asked Tom and Joe what it was that made them choose Purity:

“We always ensure all of our ingredients are sourced as locally as is possible. We wanted to align our drink offering with our local approach and we both instantly thought of Purity. Not only does it tick the seriously local box, but it ticks the seriously ‘good drop’ box too, so it was a perfect match! We can now pair premium local food with premium local beer.”

“If people ask what beer I recommend, I always point to Purity. I should be on some kind of commission!!” Joe adds. “If it’s lager, it’s always Lawless. Four ingredients, unfiltered and it comes in a really cool glass tankard! I even took a couple down to our farmhouse to watch the rugby last weekend… certainly got a few looks as I walked across the carpark with them!”

 

A business passed down through the generations now sees itself building a new family. One that spans across more than just the generations, but bringing in those from outside the family name. Putting a huge emphasis on culture and empowering their team, the family do not underestimate the invaluable contribution the team make to their business. Joe and Tom are building a sustainable business that offers long term career opportunities for the employees as the business continues to grow.

Not wishing to stand still, there are huge plans for their already successful field to fork restaurant. Plans to create an outside seating platform to admire their incredible view in the summer months, could arguably see it become one of the best outdoor drinking spots in Warwickshire.

The introduction of a new 30x48ft polytunnel will also allow them to grow heritage products, many of which are hard to get hold of from suppliers and will allow their chefs to forage daily to create inventive dishes. New root veg plots are being prepared, with eco landscaping taking place, including beetle banks and hedgerow to provide additional habitats for local wildlife.

Joe & Tom’s ambition for The Barn at Berryfields shows no limits and, with that, the local community is recognising the fine work taking place. So it’s little wonder they were recently awarded “Best Independent Family Restaurant in the West Midlands 2018”.

We continue to enjoy working with the team at The Barn at Berryfields and can’t wait to see what they have planned for the future. We highly recommend you join us in following their amazing story unfold and pay The Barn at Berryfields a visit in the near future.

We’re toasting success again as we picked up two medals at last week’s International Brewing Awards held in Burton upon Trent the home of UK brewing.

After a thorough judging process of the best beers the world has to offer, Purity’s Longhorn IPA, named after the herd of cattle that feed on the brewers spent grain, won the Gold medal for Keg ale 3.9% – 6.0% category whilst the cycling inspired Saddle Black IPA won a bronze medal in the small pack dark beer category 5.8% – 6.9%.

The International Brewing Awards are renowned across the industry as the very highest of standards, encouraging innovation and highlighting the best beers in the world.

The judging line up and process is unique within the industry. What differentiates the International Brewing Awards group is the unifying thread that the judging panel is made up entirely of commercially active industry professionals.

This is the oldest beer and cider awards still running in the world. Its origins are based around the industry professionals of the day gathering to assess an array of entries and to reward the quality and commercial worth of the beer.

Further to our IBA success, four of our great beers have received further recognition at this weeks SIBA Beer X. Lawless Keg, Session IPA Keg and Farmhouse Keg all collecting regional Gold awards for the West Midlands, with Farmhouse Ale going on to collect National Bronze in the Sours/Spontaneous category.

Founded on a working farm in 2005, our brewery has gone from strength-to-strength over the years, with a broad range of beers and an array of national and international brewing awards. We now employ over 40 people and have expanded our sales regions as far as Nottingham, Stoke-on-Trent, Bristol and London.

When Purity Brewing Company set out the mission was simple: brew great beer without prejudice, with a conscience and with a consistency and an attention to detail, which is second to none.

Based on a working farm in the heart of the beautiful Warwickshire countryside, Purity is committed to brewing beer with a conscience. Our brewery practices are designed to be environmentally friendly and in the case of our wetland system, environmentally enriching.

Bringing the location and characters of the brewery to life has been our key aim over the last few months and we are delighted to be able to introduce our Puritans to our new brand world. This brand world is the new home for all our characters and brings our rural location to life.

The introduction of a whole new colour pallet to our brand world reflects our idyllic rural Warwickshire countryside, the greens of the rolling hills and valleys that we are based. The blues reflect not only the skies but is also a nod to our Pure Eco credentials and recycling all our waste water with our own natural reed wetland system. All our waste water is eventually fed back into the water system via the River Arrow a tributary of the River Avon. To read more about our sustainable brewing processes check out here.

The eagle eyed amongst you may have seen a slight change in how your favourite Purity beers are looking either on the handpulls in your local pub or the bottles at your local bottle shop. This has been a key part of the whole new look and feel of Purity as we move into a new decade of brewing. Freshening the look and introducing a new character to Pure Gold all feeds into the essence of what is Purity; Great Beer, Real Character. This brand new website is the accumulation of work led by our founders Paul & Jim to go back to the values that Purity was built on back in 2005 and what has driven us to where we are now in 2019 and one of the leading craft brewers in the UK.

We’ve listened to our Puritans with their feedback on our previous site and have made this new one a lot easier to navigate and discover the stories on our beers easier. We’ll be bringing more of the tales from the brewery to a brand new Brewhouse blog and keeping you up to date with where you can find your favourite pint.

This new website is just the start of what is going to be an exciting year for Purity with more beers, even more events at the brewery, new festivals and plenty of opportunities for our Puritans to continue to enjoy Great Beer, Real Character!

Here’s to a fresh New Year and fresh new look.

Cheers

Team Purity

What a way to kick off a new year! Late into 2018 we headed to the home of English football for the SME National Business awards following our regional win for ‘Best Employer under 50 Employees’ we only went and won the national final and named the best in the UK.

The awards ceremony, which took place at Wembley Stadium on Friday (7th December), celebrated Britain’s industrious, hardworking and enterprising SMEs. We lifted the trophy to rapturous applause after being named the winner thanks to outstanding initiative, boldness and imagination in the enterprise, as well as sound management practices.

The judges commented ahead of Purity being announced as winners “A simple idea brought to life by a shared passion has seen this organisation thrive in a competitive market. A thoroughly deserving winner!”

Entrants also had to demonstrate sustainable growth combined with a degree of commercial success that is exceptional for the size of the business. Founded on a working farm in 2005, Purity has gone from strength-to-strength over the years, with a broad range of beers and an array of national and international brewing awards. We now employ over 40 people and have expanded its sales regions as far as Nottingham, Stoke-on-Trent, Bristol and London.

Our cofounder and CEO, Paul Halsey, said: “What a way to end 2018! We’re absolutely delighted and extremely proud of this achievement to be recognised not just on a local stage but nationally as well. There are exciting times ahead at the brewery and this award really shows that our values of pure quality, pure eco and pure community are shining through. Huge thanks to our Puritans for their continual support of our business and of course, our beer!”

The post 150 Years of Wasps – An Exclusive Brew appeared first on Purity Brewing.

Last season saw our friends Wasps Rugby celebrated their 150th season and to commemorate such a special landmark we brewed a super exclusive special limited edition brew. As an official club partner of one of the best known names in world rugby, we created a strong Rye IPA, aged for 6 months in Bourbon Casks. This super exclusive beer is limited to only 150 bottles which are now available from both the Purity Brewery shop and Purity’s online store Bottle Shack.

The 6.2% limited edition beer is available in 750ml bottles and is brewed with champion malts, Maris Otter, Rye, Crystal Rye and Cara malts to create a warming copper orange colour. We then hopped with Pilgrim, Chinook, Galaxy and Simcoe to create a lingering floral bitterness.

Our co founder and former Wasp, Paul Halsey, said: “All of us at Purity are extremely proud of our partnership with this fantastic rugby club so we’ve poured our hearts and souls into this special beer to mark 150 years of Wasps. By matching their passion on the pitch, I know we’ve created a real crowd pleaser, both for beer fans and rugby lovers the nation over. Here’s to another 150 years of passion and performance, to every last drop!”

Stuart Cain, Commercial Director for Wasps Rugby, comments: “This is a brilliant gesture from our partner and gives our fans something special to drink when we’re hopefully celebrating a place in the play-offs.  Purity has helped us deliver a great cask ale experience at the Ricoh Arena and this just demonstrates further how they understand both rugby and what makes our fans tick.”

He added: “It’s ironic that we mark our 150th year with a celebration ale as good beer has been part of our story ever since we started. In fact, legend has it Wasps would have been a founder member of the RFU in 1871 if our representative hadn’t visited the wrong pub. It was only after a few drinks that he realised the error of his ways and was too late to attend the meeting!”
