We're finally beginning to see some light at the end of the tunnel (knock, knock). So this month's beer box features 5 lighter-beers - both in flavour and ABV. No dark beers in this batch, just several pale ales and a slightly tart fruit beer, all below 5.5% ABV. Three beers from Quantock Brewery, and 2 beers from Brass Castle.

Beer Details & Movie Pairings
Currant Affairs by Quantock Brewery
Inspired by childhood memories of a famous fruity squash, take a moment to sit back and forget about the real world's current affairs with our latest creation, Currant Affairs. For this brew we've used a classic wheat beer base and a neutral yeast; infused with an abundance of blackcurrant purée. This process gives the full-bodied brew a lush berry haze and big blackcurrant aromas, with subtle hints of resin and liquorice. Hops: Columbus Ingredients: Water, Hops, Malt (Gluten), Barley (Gluten), Wheat (Gluten), Yeast, Oats, blackcurrant purée.

Obsessed With Amarillo by Quantock Brewery
For our 2021 monthly series we've decided to do a single hop range called 'Obsessed with': January: Amarillo, we chose this hop because it's one we use less often here at QB but when we do, we loved the results, so felt it right to kick off our Obsessed series with this glorious hop. Kicking out notes of Orange, Stone Fruits and Grapefruit.
