Affinity Brew Co – Breeze
Affinity launched in Tottenham right at the end of 2016. It was initially based in two shipping containers in the yard of Five Miles – a craft beer bar and music venue. The brewery has since relocated to Bermondsey in south east London, along the so-called beer mile. Their 2.5-barrel kit was sold on as part of the move and they now brew on a 6-barrel kit housed in a railway arch. Founders Ben Duckwork and Steve Grae met whilst working as part of London’s thriving beer scene. Grae, a former home brewer, honed his skills at Bermondsey’s Brew by Numbers before going into business with Duckworth.
Breeze started life as a home-brew experiment to combine a hoppy English golden ale and a spicy Belgian saison. The idea was to produce a sessionable sparkling ale that was bold enough in flavour to stand up to spicy food. The lime zest adds a refreshing acidity and the coriander helps to accentuate the spicy, peppery character of the yeast. UK Challenger hops provide a wonderfully pleasant bitterness and a fresh grassy, floral aroma.
NOTE: This recipe requires 20g of Lime Zest to be added to the boil which is not included in this kit.
Every effort is made to match the brewery recipe precisely, but at times it maybe necessary to change some of the listed ingredients on the recipe to alternatives due to seasonality or availability, but in all cases we do our best replace with something that won’t impact on the overall taste and flavour of the beer.
