Kevin McHenry, one time leading light of the Red Rat Craft Brewery came up with a simple idea, as my postcode is IP30, why not brew an IPA with all the ingredients sourced from within a thirty mile radius of the brewery? I mulled this over for some time so when the inaugural Yaxley beer Festival asked me if I could brew a special, the theme of their festival was that the beers came from within a thirty mile radius .. Well it seemed obvious, but now I was working to a deadline .. And I hate deadlines!

The initial brew was a one off, With the help of Brendan at Iceni we got some barley and malted it ourselves then I added a batch of locally grown hops that I had been saving for just such an occasion. I left it as a one-off until I was offered some of the barley that had been grown on the Rougham Estate and malted locally and we picked a shed-load of hops at the Glemham Estate .. Another beer was born!
