Hydes Brewery are one of the country's older statesmen in brewing terms, having been brewing for over a century in Manchester. They do brew a basic core range of beers but they have started brewing small batch beers in the last few years. I encountered one of their more interesting ones yesterday in The Crown in Huddersfield.
'Munchen' is a Bavarian style beer. It is straw coloured and 5%. It uses the traditional style of Pilsnen malt and a collection of German Noble hops - Hallertau, Mittlefrau and Hersbrucker.
It is an excellent English take on a classic German style of beer, but is only available for one month, so its a grab it while you can scenario.
