The Next Lift
Another milestone for the Conbit Beer Engineers!
We proudly introduce Conbit’s newest addition, The Next Lift Peel Ale beer!
Our Conbit Beer Engineers (CBE) are at it again and they’ve brought us a fresh, futuristic taste that tantalizes our taste buds and motivates us to take on our “next lift” boldly.
Making a mark in the Conbit culture, our Conbit Beer Engineers have regrouped to bring us yet another house beer. Bringing their love for beer and technical skills together, they started the beer creation process. After much deliberation of ingredients and the intended taste concept that the CBE wanted to bring forward in this beer, the first recipe of the Conbit beer produced a20-liter batch, which needed upscaling to 1000 liters.
A few weeks later the CBE received the final recipe – however, the main ingredient, Simcoe hops were no longer available from wholesalers. With this type of hops only grown and harvested in Yakima Valley, USA, and in high demand globally – The Next Lift’s perfect taste and quality were being compromised. The supplier suggested the use of a substitute, the Citra hop, which is similar to Simcoe hops but varies in other flavor notes. However, the CBE was not ready to give up and accept defeat easily.
“As real engineers, we could not accept this that easily since we all have the “Power of Preparation” running through our veins, we quickly activated our backup plan and contacted home brewing suppliers.” – Dries van Mierlo. After endless searching, the CBE found a batch of Simcoe hops from the 2021 harvest that was shipped and ready for brewing.
