There's a very strict rule in place for any brewer taking part in this year's GABS - your beer must not be released anywhere before GABS is over (so we'll keep schtum about the US entry we sampled at the Craft Brewers Conference in March - was bloody delish though!!!). However, that doesn't mean you can't have offshoots of your GABS beer, which is what the team at Bright has done, creating a "parti gyle" brew with the left over grain from their epic entry. "Parti gyle" beers use what's left over to create a weaker beer, meaning in this case a beer from the aftermath of brewer Jon Seltin's barley/rye/oat wine. He tells us the "grist is 40 per cent rye malt, 5 per cent oat malt, and the balance a couple of different types of malted barley. Kettle hops are all Mosaic, dry hops are all Slovenian varieties." It's on tap at the brewery now, where you can also snap up tickets to their Hop, Skip & Lunch Good Beer Week event.
