Deception - Abbeydale Brewery

"We're just folk who love making quality beer!"

 Patrick Morton began his brewing career as many do home brewing from scratch, it wasn't until after he did a stint at Kelham Island Brewery Patrick along with his Dad decided to invest in a new brewing venture and Abbeydale Brewery was born. Their distinctive 'ruined abbey' logo was designed by a local artist, inspired by the frontage of Beauchief Abbey as is the names of many of their ales for example Absolution, Belfry, Daily Bread and Brimstone.

"At Abbeydale, we love beer. You could even say we're a little evangelical about it."

 Abbeydale Deception is a seasonal ale available throughout January and February, a very pale blond made with Nelson Sauvin hops which carry aromas of elderflower and gooseberry to excite the nose while plenty of citrus flavours rush through to the palate. Strong grapefruit is typically present but there's also a wine like quality to this ale which laces well to the glass and has a light foamy head. Deception is an eminently quaffable session ale with a good, long finish. ABV 4.1%
