Everything flows, nothing remains
We are delighted to be introducing a brand new range of beers to the Brew York portfolio: State of Mind Series. State of Mind is a series of one-off, small-batch and experimental beer releases as we explore processes like barrel-ageing and other exciting and unusual styles of beer. We were inspired to launch this range after the huge success of BBA Empress Tonkoko, we launched back in early 2019. The Buffalo trace version going on to win the award for the UK’s best Barrel Aged beer in the world beer awards 2019. We have been working hard behind the scenes adding to our barrel ageing collection and have some real treats to release over the coming months. And we will be adding even more beer to barrels in the new year once our main production moves across to our new site and we have the capacity to brew some more interesting beer styles and more importantly the space to store the barrels.
The can artwork in the State of Mind Series will take a different direction from our usual vibrant and character-forward cans, to reflect the unique identity and journey that the beers in this series have gone through. Massive shout out to the team at UBD for continuing to create stunning and eye-catching label artwork from our often crazy beer ideas!
We’re kicking off the series in a big way with BA Cherry Tonkoko: a 9.5% barrel-aged cherry, coconut, cacao, tonka and vanilla milk stout. Remember our Cherry Tonkoko from July 2019? Well this is that and being aged in French Burgundy wine barrels for over 12 months has amplified all the flavours and decadence of the base beer, with a complex but rounded finish from the rich wine barrels.
Given the nature of the beers, the quantities of cans in this Series will often be quite limited compared to our usual specials. Therefore, a guaranteed way of enjoying the first release; BA Cherry Tonkoko (and to receive it before it goes live on our web shop as individual cans!) is to become a subscriber in our Monthly Subscription Box which BA Cherry Tonkoko will be the star beer this month! Become a subscriber over on our web shop and for full details of what this includes. To guarantee delivery of this month’s Subscription Box you must purchase before this Friday 30th at 4pm.

Individual cans of BA Cherry Tonkoko will be going live on our web shop on Wednesday 18th November so don’t miss out on that!
