Newport upstarts Tiny Rebel aren't so tiny any more. Chances are you've heard of at least one of their beers by now. Tiny Rebel started life in 2012 and promptly turned the Welsh beer scene on its head; a part of the world where the options at the bar 10 years ago were a pint of Brains or… Brains.
Founded by old pals Gaz and Brad, they’re based on a pretty generic, uninspiring industrial estate, but stepping through the door is a Narnia like experience… if Narnia was a stainless steel and graffiti-laden beer temple.
Indeed, longtime BeerBods subscribers will have had a number in your boxes over the last few years. Now they're coming at you again with Dutty, A Session Vermont pale ale that defies the rules that high ABVs are needed for juice levels and mouthfeel.
The Tiny Rebel team Introduce it for us;
“Dutty came about after trying a few incredible New England IPAs - murky, silky-textured beers that retain all the flavour of the juicy hops without imparting a big bitterness. They look incredible, feel incredible, smell and taste incredible. We had to have one.
The brew team got to work on hop profiles and quickly settled on Cascade, Comet and Mosaic. These gave us grassy, pine notes as well as juicy tropical undertones. Heaps of these at the end of the boil bring out masses of flavour without too much bitterness, for that refreshing, moreish finish.
The name is our little tribute to the legend that is Sean Paul. The word Dutty, meaning dirty but in a good way, is a feature of several Sean Paul classics and the perfect word for the high level of murk in the beer. It’s a firm favourite here at the brewery. And a go-to fridge filler for home too. Hoppy, but not too bitter. Refreshing, but packed with flavour. And murky as you like.”
