This years release of DDH Parka sees tweaks to the recipe to get as much out of the double Citra dry hop as we can.
The juicy, soft, aspects we love from OG Parka, with a light bitterness and extreme drinkability that really give the Citra space to shine; vibrant peach, passionfruit and citrus on top of Parka’s deep flavourful base in this year’s DDH version of our favourite flagship beer.
The concept of Double-Barrelled began when our co-founders Mike & Luci Clayton-Jones got married, back in 2015. With Mike being a passionate home brewer for many years prior, they created their first branded “Double-Barrelled” beer as their wedding favour, as a nod to Mike’s much begrudged surname. Having loved creating their own brand of beer & sharing their beers on a larger scale than ever before, this idea became the pathway to where we are today.
Now we operate from a 6,400 SqFt warehouse on the outskirts of Reading, brewing on a 24Hl brewhouse made in Burton on Trent, packaging all our beers onsite with our own 5 head canning line, with our first beers released from this site in November 2018.
We produce a variety of ever changing beers, helped by the passionate and diligent individuals who make up our awesome team.
Our two core beers, are the perfect introduction to Double-Barrelled; Parka our 4.5% Citra Dry Hopped Pale Ale and Ding, our 4.9% Keller Lager, made in the ‘Ding for the ‘Ding.
From there, we produce nearly all styles from traditional German hefeweizens, to barrel aged imperial stouts. Nearly all our beers are vegan friendly (with the exception of a few milk stouts!) and we take pride in sourcing the best ingredients to create stand out beers, from grain to glass.
We strive to be known for our dedication to quality, consistency and, in everything we do, do it with passion, care & kindness.
We focus on continuous improvement and believe that there is a beer for everyone
As lovers of great beer and brewing all of the beer that we stock is stored in our cold store until we ship it to you to ensure it maintains its freshness and flavour longer. Be sure to check out the ever changing range here.
