New Lithuanian beer is simply magic!

In a World first, Lithuania’s AF Alaus Darykla (AF Brewery) has pioneered a technique of making beer from just air and water. The equipment used in this process looks reminiscent of the apparatus that brought the monster to life in Universal’s 1931 film of Mary Shelly’s ‘Frankenstein’ and literally, through sparks and alchemy, sucks one methyl (-CH3) group, one methylene (-CH2-) group, and one hydroxyl (-OH) group of molecules out of the air and combines them to form C2H5OH – Ethanol, or Ethyl Alcohol. The alcohol is then collected in small vessels (the process is extremely power intensive and only produces very small quantities).

Cask is the word from Cloudwater! Only two years after dropping cask beers from its production, award-winning Cloudwater has decided to re-introduce cask in very limited quantities. Writing on their blog here they sate: “If you’re the sort of establishment that has a cellar that’s maintained between 10.5ºC-12ºC at all times, know to dispense cask when it’s conditioned out past any rise and fall of diacetyl producing VDK, and have enough stillage to serve cask beer when it’s ready and bristling with CO2, and not just when one of your lines is free, please get in touch here to register your interest”.
