Brew York X Bone Machine – Raid On Sigtuna
4.5% Finnic Lingonberry Sour
In 1187 the Viking age settlement of Sigtuna was raided by the Finnic Pagans of the Karelian tribe. It is thought to have been an act of revenge for the Catholic Crusades.
In a less bloody raid, the Bone Machine sons of Karelia stormed the brewery of Brew York to create a modern red sour ale, with typical Finnic flavours of juniper and lingonberry. For a further Finnic twist the ale has been dry-hopped with Pekko, so named after Karelian protector of barley & brewing.

Brew York was born out of two friends passion (some would say obsession) for beer and brewing. Creating Brew York was the realisation of a long lived dream to build a brewery in the centre of York where the experience and location is as enjoyable as the beer itself. The brewery consists of a 20 hl Brewhouse and over 260 HL in Fermenting and Conditioning capacity. This gives us the ability to produce a core range of 6 stunning beers and the flexibility to produce the more ‘out there’ seasonal and one-off beers that really excites us. Our beer is produced in Cask, Keg & Can and sold throughout the UK.
Our brewery is located within York’s historic city walls, a 15 minute walk from the station. A very unique Taproom with riverside beer garden has been constructed right alongside the Brewhouse to showcase our beers at their freshest.
