Some years ago I fell in love with and wrote open love letters to Pretty Things Beer Project, and earlier this year I discovered they had moved to the UK, re-christened themselves, and are now based in Sheffield.
And I still love them.
Love them deeply.
Because their beer is astonishingly good.
There’s just so much more depth to what they do than to so many other breweries.
This, a new interpretation of the Jack D’Or that I gushed about some years ago, is a brilliant Saison packed with honeycomb and pancakes, waffles and caramel, along with a mightily slap of fresh herbal greenery, lime zest and creamy lemon curd from the hops, and the gently warm fug of yeast that brings a sweet silage kiss to the carrot cake and cinnamon finish.
