Underwater Song by Round Corner Brewing

Baltic Porter, 8.2%

Round Corner’s take on a Baltic Porter. Fermented at 10oC with lager yeast and then cold-lagered for smoothness, this love letter to malty goodness is a profusion of aromatic coffee, molasses, raisin and caramel flavours from twelve different malts. The addition of Challenger and East Kent Goldings hops add balance and bitterness.


The live tasting of this beer was on 23rd December 2021 #BeerBods

The Story

Located in the end shed of Melton Mowbray Market, Round Corner Brewing is the brainchild of close friends Colin Paige and Combie Cryan. The brewery was founded in late 2018, with the duo’s first brew making its way into punters hands Christmas that year. In early 2019 they landed themselves some funding, broke ground on their very own brewery and taproom and haven’t looked back since.

Head brewer Colin brings with him a wealth of experience, after heading up brewing efforts at the likes of Thunder Road Brewing in Australia and New Zealand’s Mac’s Brewery - both of which won numerous awards whilst under his leadership. After returning to the UK in 2017, Colin took on a head brewer role at Butcombe Brewery, helping them to win their first-ever gold medal at the World Beer Awards.

Combie heads up the business side of things, he brought the brewery to Melton market and in Round Corner’s Words “tries to boss (he calls it ‘guiding’) everyone around.”

In the time since launch, Round Corner have already started to make waves across the brewing industry. Most notably for picking up a gold and silver medal at the world beer awards in their first year of trading.

We first came across Round Corner at the beginning of 2020 and were so impressed we ended up featuring them in our Ones to Watch box for 2020. After featuring them a year or so ago in our main beer club we’ve been counting down the days to feature them again.

For tonight’s beer, we have Underwater Song, Round Corner’s take on a Baltic Porter. Fermented at 10oC with lager yeast and then cold-lagered for smoothness, this love letter to malty goodness is a profusion of aromatic coffee, molasses, raisin and caramel flavours from twelve different malts. The addition of Challenger and East Kent Goldings hops add balance and bitterness.
