Our Beers

Verdita Sour

Cà Phê

A breakfast stout brewed with Vietnamese coffee. The bold roasted coffee bitterness is balanced by the sweetness of the lactose and a slighty nutty flavour.

Slow Show

A collaboration with Yeastie Boys. A deceptively drinkable rye barley wine, aged for a year in bourbon barrels. Aromas of raisin, leather, fig and vanilla lead to complex oak flavours and a clean, balanced finished, despite the high ABV.

Availability:

Stratasphere

Formally Vertical Drinks, Kirkstall Brewery Company started as the UK’s first importers of beer from around the world, and their portfolio includes some of the best names from the UK and Europe.

As it is the standard practice in America, Kirkstall Brewery was one of the first UK wholesalers to keep all beers in cold storage, to ensure that the beer arrives as fresh as it left the brewery. Whilst our freshness policy of ordering from breweries ‘little and often’ drives us towards regular deliveries so that the beer arrives in your customer’s glass in peak condition. Distributing to many customers throughout the North of England, Kirkstall Brewery are proud to represent breweries from the UK and beyond.
