General description

Our Bombay is a delicious lager that is enriched with supertropical hopping. A big story is oftne made out of that. In short then… Beers shipped to the English colonies had to be sustainable for a long time. That’s why the English Ales were brewed with a good dose of hops. Centuries later, we still do so, but no longer because of its shelf life.
