Gypsy launches second brew

Birmingham brewery serves up tropical-flavoured craft beer.

Months after the debut of its first beverage, Birmingham-based Gypsy Brew is raising the bar once again with the launch of its second craft beer, Garrity Mash. Having co-founded Gypsy Brew during last year’s lockdown, the Midlands-based brewery owners, Gary Meads and Al Smith, have developed a blend that is essential-tasting for any beer-lover this spring.

Expertly crafted in a quaint brewery in Weatheroak Hill, Garrity Mash is a tropical fruit 3.9% ABV Session Pale Ale, packed full of juicy notes of mango. Offering a refreshing burst of complex vibrant flavours, Garrity Mash is now available to buy from the Gypsy Brew website and promises to be a crowd favourite as the warmer weather approaches.

Commenting on the launch of Garrity Mash, Gary Meads, Co-Founder of Gypsy Brew, says: “We are delighted to already be launching our second flavour, Garrity Mash, ahead of the return of hospitality later this spring. To think that we founded Gypsy Brew and began working on our first beer, just over a year ago during the first lockdown versus now launching our second flavour this March is such a great feeling. Creating a new brand and developing our brews has certainly been a labour of love, but perfecting Garrity Mash has certainly been worth the wait!”

Despite launching its first beer, Gypsy Water, just three months ago, Gypsy Brew has already generated significant buzz within the regional hospitality scene as Artisan Street Kitchen’s Andrew Sheridan and his team are set to serve up Gypsy Water alongside premium dishes in the coming months. Likewise, the independently-produced beer will also be stocked at critically acclaimed restaurants such as Simpsons and AboutCraft.

Speaking about the new launch and plans for the future, Al Smith added: “With the return of hospitality firmly on the horizon, we’re very excited about what’s yet to come during the next few months. We’re so pleased to be launching Garrity Mash and hope that it proves to be the flavour of the summer – and beyond!

“Gypsy Brew is exceptionally close to both mine and Gary’s heart’s as it combines both of our families’ multi-generational ties to both the Midlands and the hospitality scene and our shared passion to deliver a taste of something new within the wider UK craft beer scene. We’re already looking at other ways we can continue to diversify the Gypsy Brew brand and our offering within the Midlands, such as introducing a recycling-led loyalty scheme, so stay tuned for updates!”

Garrity Mash is available to buy from the Gypsy Brew website in packs of up to 24. Find out more about the brand, and its range of craft beers, here.
