MORE ABOUT THE BEER
Hopspur has subtle, citrus-fruit aromas over chewy biscuit-y malt flavours a slight sticky sweetness and an undercurrent of grapefruit piney notes. It is exceptionally well balanced with hop-flavours to the fore and an easy, bitter finish.
The rich complexity of this amber ale combine with it’s initially mild flavour and relatively low ABV make it a great all round beer. It has enough flavour to satisfy lovers of deep, bitter ales but is light enough to please more casual beer drinkers as well.
Hopspur has a light fruity undertone that makes it a great choice for the summer months but a little bitterness and depth that means it works brilliantly in winter as well. If you’d like to serve Hopspur at your bar hire, you may want to consider featuring some light APAs or stouts alongside it.
Hopspur is available through our mobile craft beer truck hire service in 500ml bottles. Bottles come in cases of 24 and you can order as many or as few cases as you’d like.

ABOUT THE BREWERY
Redemption Brewing Co have been one of the leading lights in London’s craft beer scene since their inception in 2010. This award-winning North London brewery focuses on modern, drinkable session beers with a reputation for quality and consistency.
Redemption is a small, family run business with an onsite taproom and close links to their local community of Tottenham. It was started by husband and wife team Sam Rigby and Andy Moffat when in 2009, they both decided to quit their jobs to open a microbrewery in North London. It seemed like a crazy idea at the time but in the ten years since, Redemption Brewing Co has gone from strength to strength, amassing a loyal legion of fans and winning multiple awards at the prestigious Society of Independent Brewers.
Redemption’ beers are firmly ingrained in London, they use Maris Otter barley grown in the English countryside and locally sourced, British grown hops wherever possible, mostly coming from the garden of England; Kent. For their more exotic beers they do import some full-flowered New World hops but at the heart of all their products is London water piped directly from North London’s Lea Valley.
Now a decade old, Redemption Brewing Co is one of the elder statesmen of the London craft beer scene, they are accomplished and highly respected. They pride themselves on their close links with their local community and are involved in a number of school-programs and charitable ventures around Tottenham. They also donate all their spent grain and hops to local allotments for use in composting.
