ABOUT THE BEER

This is First Chop’s first foray into the wonderful world of lager. After sustained success with their craft ales First Chop wanted to produce a high-quality, gluten-free lager – a beer for the people. 

FC Helles is crisp, clean, refreshing and subtly hopped making it a gorgeously sessionable lager, perfect for summery days or long evenings. This German style lager is a respectable 4.1% giving it the full body of a premium lager whilst still being light enough to session. 

It took First Chop 6 years to release a lager but they think it was worth the wait, they’ve taken the very best malt, hops and yeast and brewed it in the proper way – bottom fermented with a long maturation. This has produced a lager that is clean, well balanced and easy to drink. 

FC Helles is available to order for our craft beer truck hire service in cans and kegs, cans are 440ml and come in cases of 12, you can order as many or as few cases as you like. Kegs are 30l which is around 50 pints. 

If you’re thinking of stocking FC Helles at your bar hire and want to know more about how much to order or what other drinks you could serve alongside it, be sure to speak to your event organiser or check out some other lagers and german-style beers from our list.

ABOUT THE BREWERY

First Chop brewing Arm was established in 2012 with a borrowed microbrewery and a passion for great beer. 

They started by brewing around 400 litres a month and within a year, demand had skyrocketed and they needed a brewery of their own to keep up. Fast forward to 2017 and First Chop began operating from their new brewery in Salford, producing more than 80,000 litres of beer a month. 

First Chop believe in making beer for everyone, all their products are vegan and the majority of them are gluten-free as well, with all their tested and certified, gluten-free beers carrying the cross-grain logo. First Chop see no p;ace for gluten in beer so they make sure to remove virtually all the gluten from their beers until the gluten content is below 10PPM (parts per million). This doesn’t make the beer taste any different and is a testament to their stringent quality procedures.

All First Chop’s beers are available to order through our mobile craft beer truck hire service, all are available in cans and many can be ordered on draft as well.
