The award-winning Red Cow in Llwydcoed, situated on the outskirts of Aberdare and home to the Grey Trees Brewery will be launching their Diggers Gold beer through a hop rocket this Thursday, 2nd August. A hop rocket is an ingenious device which clamps to the bar and allows beer to be forced through a cyclinder of hops - the first hop rocket in Wales was recently shown at the Great Welsh Beer & Cider Festival where Tiny Rebel Brewery of Newport used it on their already hop-packed beers.
The first 'Hop-rocket night' at the Red Cow will fetaure American Cascade hops being featured in the hop rocket and Diggers Gold beer receiving the treatment. One for the tickers there I'm sure!
