Gigantic just got bigger

Gigantic G

As you'll probably remember from last May, we'd happened upon Gigantic on our travels to the Pacific north west, Portland specifically, and immediately fell for them. Staunchly independent, bold, confident - not just hop forward but everything forward!

The initial supply of beers went fast (really fast) so we knew we'd have to get back on the case; unfortunately, a lot of people in the US were thinking the same so we have had to wait in line but our time has come again.

Along with the completely solid Gigantic IPA and Ginormous Imperial IPA, there's three new beers:

Holy Oak (7.7% Abv) is a collaboration with our neighbours Magic Rock who are based just up the road from us in West Yorkshire. A Bourbon barrel-aged kettle sour beer, brewed to mimic a gloriously refreshing whisky sour.

Kiss the Goat (8% Abv) looks like one scary mutha. It's a black doppelbock, so expect plenty of bready, toasty malt with a decent dash of chocolate on the finish. A big beer to see off these lingering winter nights.

There's plenty of British brewers making American-style pale ales (and why not, they're great), but it's always good to see American brewers doffing their caps back this way. The Business (6% Abv) is classed by Gigantic as a Brit-American Pale Ale, with a mix of British Maris Otter malt and bright American hops like Cascade and Magnum. Bright and zesty citrus aromas and passionfruit flavours, with biscuity malt for good measure.

All five Gigantic beers are due with us by mid April. James Clay are taking pre-orders from trade customers - please just login to the trade area on our website and download the order form or call the Sales Team on 01422 377 560.
