Storm in a Teacup by Wild Weather Ales
Earl Grey IPA, 6%
Storm in a Teacup is not your average IPA. Infused with loose Earl Grey tea leaves at a chilly 2°C, it carries a payload of aromatic citrus, lemon and herbal character, with a subtly tannic edge.

Mike Tempest and his wife Karen founded Reading-based Wild Weather Ales in late 2012. Over the past 8 years they’ve slowly been making a name for themselves with an uncompromising approach to quality and innovative flavour combinations.
The brewery grew fairly organically for the first four years becoming a household name in Reading and the surrounding areas. In 2016, the introduction of a canning line at the brewery allowed Wild Weather Ales to branch out, getting their beers further afield, into punters hands up and down the country.
Now a team of six and a couple of expansions later, Wild Weather seem to have found their rhythm, churning out a number of one off specials every month as well as some notable collaborations with the likes of Yeastie Boys and Weird Beard that have received critical acclaim.
Brewing great beer is one thing, but making your brand stand out in today’s market is a challenge in itself. Wild Weather Ales are excelling here too, with some truly unique and striking can art courtesy of the punk artist and guitarist from London punk band MÜG.
For tonight’s beer, we have Storm in a Teacup. An IPA infused with loose Earl Grey tea leaves at a chilly 2°C. It carries a payload of aromatic citrus and lemon from US hops balanced against a distinct herbal character, with a subtly tannic edge. This is one IPA you won’t be forgetting in a hurry.
