Real Ale in ‘Ome Made products from Fuggle Bunny Brew House of Sheffield.
As a Christmas special in 2015 I made a Fruity Chocolate Stout Chutney. It was going to be a one off but proved so popular that I thought I would do something similar as a mainstay. After all Real Ale is very popular at the moment!
And then I started thinking… “what else can I make with beer?” So I decided to do a Ketchup and a Brown Sauce as well as a Chutney.
So I started looking for a local brewery. A brewery that had the right credentials to suit the ‘Ome Made brand and of course, made really good beer!
I came across a brewery based in Sheffield, Fuggle Bunny Brew House, who seemed to fit the bill. I approached them with my ideas and they were interested in what I had to offer. So off I went to see them and, of course, sample some beer.
I have to say I was welcomed by two of the nicest people you could ever hope to meet… Fuggle bunny Brew House owners Wendy and Dave. They let me sample the beers they had on and I have to say it was some of the finest real ale I have ever tasted!
So that decided it. I had found my brewery!
For the Fruity Fuggle Chutney I used the Jammy Dodger Ale a ruby red ale with fruity undertones.
The Stout Brown Sauce uses Russian Rare-Bit Stout. A lovely quaffable stout with flavours of chocolate and coffee… Good stuff!
For the Summer Haze Ketchup I found the perfect beer, Lazy Hazy Summer Daze. A light and refreshing ale with subtle fruit flavours… Fantastic! One of those beers that on a hot summer day you can just ‘neck!’. It gives the tomato ketchup a lovely fruity flavour with just a hint of hoppiness.
The new products are available to buy from the brewery themselves… follow the link here: www.fugglebunnybrewhouse.co.uk to find out more about the brewery and their selection of fine real ales.
