Unity is a Southampton brewery, committed to making flavourful, sophisticated and innovative beer.

Swim Club is a West Coast Pale Ale which Jimmy discussed with us while we visited them a few weeks ago as part of their involvement with The Hop Additions first home brew competition in 2022.

This recipe kit also includes 2 interesting additions. ALDC, which prevents the formation of diacetyl in your fermentation and Aromazyme which increased the hop diversity and aroma. Follow the instructions on the packet for these individual additions.
