Gluten-Free Beer -how does that work?

Gluten-Free Beer -how does that work?

All of our core range of beers are labelled gluten-free, and that can sometimes cause confusion in our customers. We're asked: "How can it be gluten-free when barley and wheat are in the ingredients?" Firstly, what is Gluten-free? It's defined by...

Hands off Craft: why words matter

Hands off Craft: why words matter

Those in the brewing industry will know the old chestnut of being asked to define craft beer. In the first few years running our brewery Powderkeg we would jokingly nominate each other to explain it to journalists and curious bystanders. It’s such...

We're quite a camera-shy lot here at PK but occasionally we like to give you a little peek behind the scenes. This is Josh our lead brewer, and he works tirelessly to make sure our beers are consistently delicious.
Generally if you point a camera Josh's way you'll get a view of his back pretty quickly, but @poppyjakesphotography caught him in a good mood!

Have one anyway
Green Light goes vegan!
Our multi award-winning low-alcohol beer Green Light has ditched the vegetarian label and gone fully vegan. Added to this, we think it's tasting better than ever!

We found a plant-based solution to replace the lactose that was in our recipe. Lactose is often used to add mouthfeel in lieu of the body that full-alcohol brewing normally provides. However we no longer need it, so Green Light has joined the rest of our core range in being suitable for vegans.

Our full range is also gluten-free dontcha know.
If you want to know more about how we make our beer gluten-free you can read it on our blog.
If you haven't tried it yet, what are you waiting for!

We've teamed up with Devon Rum Co to give you the chance to WIN 1 of 5 Rum & Beer Bundles worth over £100!
Enter now for your chance to treat your tastebuds this Christmas 🎅

Enter via the link in our bio 👆 for your chance to grab one of these Limited Edition bundles, featuring our collaborative Rum & Raisin Chocolate Bock Beer, a bottle of Black Spiced Rum, and more!

Hailing from the legendary brewing traditions of Germany, a bock beer is part of the lager family, but made from more heavily toasted malts for a darker hue.

With the addition of organic cocoa nibs, it gains a velvety chocolate background that makes a smooth, rich and delicious beer, with a light body and medium sweetness 👌

But the true magic starts when we introduce some boozy fruit into the mix...

Plump raisins are steeped in our award-winning Black Spiced Rum, before being infused with the beer for seven days - releasing all their delicious flavours 🖤

The result is a bronzed beer with a fruity malt base, a chocolatey background, and rich treacly flavours from the rum-soaked raisins 🤤

The perfect Christmas pint does exist - be in it to win it!
What's your favourite Christmas tipple?

Chocolate Bocks
We've brewed a trio of Bock beers specially for Christmas, in three delicious festive flavours.

A bock is a German-style lagered beer made with more toasted barley. Rich and sweet from a blend of five malts this European-style beer boasts a deep mahogany hue. 

Meet the Trio:
Double Chocolate - barrel-aged on a generous addition of cocoa nibs for a decadent, velvety truffle finish.

Rum & Raisin - Cocoa nibs give a chocolate background, and raisins steeped in Devon Rum Co’s Black Spiced Rum add deep boozy caramel flavours. 

Chocolate Orange - barrel-aged on roasted cocoa nibs for velvety chocolate and finished with a bit of zing from natural orange extract.

These will be available from John Lewis Exeter  Greendale Farm Shop Love local Christmas Market (see previous post)
Plus the usual high-quality indies like Greendale, Darts, Smiths Wine and Jaded Palates.
