“The Sirens of Greek mythology would entice mariners with their magical songs. Their voices would entwine into a complex, layered melody.” At Siren Craft Brew, we work in a similar way, combining four ingredients that interact together in magical ways to create our ales. Each beer is individual, overflowing with flavour, aroma and texture. Each holds its own secret. Each is a little dangerous.
Great beer is such a diverse landscape, whether it is encapsulating the best a pale ale or light refreshing pilsner can be, or experimenting with high alcohol flavours trying to capture something new, balanced and drinkable, there is something for everyone, every mood, every day.
To us at Siren, we see great beer as many see fine wines. In a great beer there is Allure – something that draws you in, is it the aroma? the look? Or just the thought about what awaits in that sparkling glass in front of you. Siren Craft Brew want you to look at beer in the same way. Yes it can be that perfect thirst quencher on a hot summers days, yes it can be the perfect drink to mark the end of a busy week. But look closer, smell closer, there is more. Much more.
To make the finest beers it makes sense to use the best ingredients possible. To us it also makes sense to craft the recipe around the flavour, aroma and taste we want. – Our beers can have 8 times the ingredients of mass produced beer, but to us its worth it. Take our Breakfast Stout for instance, we felt that to get the complexity of flavour we were looking for we needed to work with a specialist in their field to pick the right coffee, the right quantity and used in the right way. In this endeavour the cost of our coffee costs more than many breweries spend on hops in a hoppy beer. But is it worth it…absolutely
The brewing process hasn’t changed in hundreds of years, but as industrialisation has sped many things up, to us we take things slower. The beer will be ready when its ready, not because it needs to get out of the door. We aim to make beers that are enjoyable, cover a wide range of needs from being accessible to the truly unique and occassionaly challenging, but each has a purpose, personality and ultimately draws you in to want to try more.
