First of all, can I start by saying thank you to everyone who recently pre-ordered. I am writing to you with an update on the brewing process and recent brew day/canning day that you may have seen us sharing on our social media channels.
I was excited to get some of the cans back to try myself, but unfortunately, discovered an issue. The beer tastes great, has a wonderful aroma and colour, but unfortunately it appears to lose its head and feel flat rather too quickly.
I have made the decision to re brew the beer as I have worked too hard over the past 18 months to share a beer with you that I’m not happy with.
We will begin brewing again asap but unfortunately it means we are likely to miss a Christmas delivery. I hope you understand and I’ll look forward to sending our final product out to you asap.
I’m aware that some of you will have made purchases based on them being Christmas presents, so I sincerely apologise, but I am sure you appreciate us wanting to ensure your gift is of the highest quality. However, if based on this you would prefer a refund, then please send an email over to firstname.lastname@example.org with details of your order, and we’ll make arrangements to refund you as soon as we can.
This is another hurdle in our journey, but I look forward to sharing our beer with you as soon as we can. There is a YouTube link below explaining this all too.
Thanks again to each of you for your support, it really is appreciated.
It’s finally happening, and we’re so excited about it. On the 2nd and 3rd of November we will be brewing – and we mean BREWING. We’ll be heading back into the brewery to brew somewhere in the region of around 1,000L of delicious West Coast IPA. It’s so exciting to see things are finally happening!
We’ve been on what feels like a long journey trying to get things moving, and the first batch will be ready somewhere around the time of our one-year anniversary as Salt Steel. It’s been a heck of a year but we’re really grateful for all the love and support everyone has shown us. We can’t wait to see what happens next!
It was a big decision to go for this and work at it, but I am really glad that we’ve stuck things out and are on the cusp of launching our first beer, amid a global pandemic. Who would of thought?!
If anyone of you have liked one of our posts, shared our pages, or maybe even tret’ yourself to a Salt Steel T-Shirt or Hoodie, then from the bottom of my heart, thank you – thank you – thank you!
As for what happens next, we’ll keep you posted and look forward to sharing the journey along the way.
If you haven’t had chance to check out our awesome new T shirts and hoodies, head over to our merch page and get yours today. We really appreciate everyone’s support so far. It really means a lot. We’ve been working so hard to get our beer ready to share with you all, and we promise we are so close to launching. Bare with us, it’s nearly time!
Lockdown has been tough for everyone. Local businesses have especially been affected, and have worked hard to keep going. Launching a business in this time has been eventful but I am so pleased to say that we are back in the bloody brewery! – and it feels awesome to be brewing beer again for the first time.
We have taken the time to revisit our recipes again and make some changes to make sure it’s exactly how we want it to be. We currently have a a brew on the go and hope that once it’s done, we’ll be able to hit up the big brew kit and start our larger scale brew!
This means that our flagship IPA “Strip Tees” should be available to purchase at the start of August. We are so excited to share it with you – so watch this space!!
If you haven’t checked out our YouTube channel – Salt Steel TV – give it a go, there’ll be lots of updates on there too.
