It's been a long time coming. It almost seems like it's been decades but it's only been months since Mordue Brewery's Panda Frog project hit the drawing board. Those that remember last November's twissup in the Toon may remember trying free samples of the Pandazilla trial batch. But now the time is finally closing in to get the stuff officially re-brewed on the Mordue kit and finally unleash the mighty 7% (thay's right, we're keeping it 7%) Pandazilla cascadian dark ale to world.
Well I can't get too excited yet. At the moment Mordue's elusive Panda Frog project consists of four, ten barrel brews which at this moment exist mostly only on paper. Each will be released more or less in line with a season (the first being spring). Many things such as artwork and future official release dates are pending. But I can tell you Pandazilla will be released to the wider public for the first time on Wednesday 18th April at the Newcastle Beer Festival at Northumbria University.
I won't be giving you any more information, but from now I will be opening a new page on the blog titled Panda Frog. This temporarily compensates for the Panda Frog project not yet having an official web page. That's all for now.
