Introducing the Origins Brewing Spring 2018 Collection
Fyne Ales is excited to reveal three new beers created as part of the Origins Brewing project - Habitual, Baroque and Expedition - the Spring 2018 Collection.
Much like the Autumn 2017 Collection which launched with the reveal of the Origins Brewing project in later 2017, the three beers in the Spring 2018 collection are a showcase of Fyne Ales provenance as a Scottish farmhouse brewery, combining creativity and unorthodox ingredients and brewing methods to brew flavour-forward, exciting beers.
Baroque (8.3%) is a complex blend of Belgian-inspired saisons, each aged in oak barrels for a minimum of nine months. The artful farmhouse blend includes native Argyll microflora courtesy of a small-batch spontaneously fermented saison brewed in 2015, alongside components brewed with Belgian yeasts and Brettanomyces.

Habitual (7.1%) is a bretted, blended Belgian tripel aged for 12 months in American oak barrels before conditioning on apricots. Read more.
Expedition (5.6%) is a old and new world IPA fusion - a Citra & Amarillo IPA aged in American oak for 12 months before blending with kettle-soured wheat beer. Read more.
“The response to Origins Brewing since we announced it at the end of last year has been overwhelming - it’s been amazing to see our excitement for the project reflected by the beer community and drinkers, so thank you to everyone who bought the beers and gave us feedback on the project” commented Fyne Ales MD, Jamie Delap. “The Spring 2018 Collection continues to show what Origins Brewing is all about - creative, complex beers with exciting flavours brewed with a sense of place and provenance.”
The three new Origins Brewing beers will be launched on Saturday 21 April with an event at the Fyne Ales Brewery Tap. In addition to the Spring 2018 Collection, bottles of the Autumn 2017 Collection and rarities from the Fyne Ales cellar will be pouring alongside with guest beers and talks from Wild Beer Co, Little Earth Project, Dead End Brew Machine and bottle pours from The Netherland’s Tommie Sjef Wild Ales.
