Hackney, London, UK
A relatively new brewery, Beavertown has exploded into the scene in London with some of the finest beers in the country. Founded in 2011 in Hackney, it’s named Beavertown because centuries ago Hackney was apparently called Beavertown. There are five ‘core’ beers and Gamma Ray is one of the most famous of the five.
Gamma Ray is a fine American pale ale inspired by some of the best micro breweries the USA has to offer. It is a fruity and hoppy taste and the smell is very strong. It’s an incredibly fresh tasting ale that I find incredibly interesting to taste. There are so many different flavours and aromas as you take your first gulp. Incredible. Gamma Ray is amber in colour and at 5.4% certainly does pack a punch.
As you can see it is an amber colour with a bit of foam on the top. It is a big flavour that you’ll constantly want more of. I’ve had many evenings where I’ve just stuck to Gamma Ray all night in fear another pale ale won’t live up to its high standards. The branding of Beavertown is bold, exciting and surely another reason why it has done so well. With striking logo and designs Beavertown is one of the most exciting breweries in the country.
One of the best pale ales on the market. Top stuff.
