Brummie beer brand, Gypsy Brew, has uncapped two cracking new brews: a craft lager, Cushti Bok, and a craft cider, Django’s Halo. Co-founded by Gary Meads and Al Smith in 2020, the independent microbrewery has proudly produced a curated collection of expertly crafted bottles, with an inimitable line-up of phenomenal brews.

Produced in a family-owned microbrewery in Weatheroak Hill, Cushti Bok is the first craft lager to be served up by Gypsy Brew. Brewed with German Saphir hops for a delicately spiced herbal feel throughout, the 330ml 5.2% ABV lager boasts a deliciously original, clean, crisp citrus flavour for an unforgettable bottle.

Django’s Halo is their first craft cider, celebrating the saintly purity of juicy red Idared apples. The 5.5% ABV drink – also available in 330ml – is an intense, irresistibly bittersweet, tart medium dry cider packed with nothing but the very best apples. Both drinks are vegan-friendly, with packs of 3 – 24 now available to purchase online. 

Commenting on the new direction for the brand, Gary Meads – Co-Founder of Gypsy Brew – says:

“As we launch Cushti Bok and Django’s Halo, we’re so excited to expand our offering with a full range of four exceptional brews available for beer lovers up and down the UK. As a small business, our collection is deliberately tight and refined: we are committed to remaining a small batch brewery with a confident collection of genuinely epic beers for our customers.”

Since launching its first beer – Gypsy Water –  just eight months ago, Gypsy Brew have gone from strength to strength, finding its way into a number of leading independent venues in the Midlands, Dicks Smokehouse, Fig & Favour, Smithtons, Umberslade Wine Bar and many more. Most recently, Gypsy Brew has formed an exclusive partnership with Craft in Birmingham city centre, making it the restaurant’s sole beer supplier.

“It should go without saying that as a small microbrewery, we pride ourselves on delivering the highest quality. Our beer cicerone, Rob, is unashamedly obsessive about his craft and practically nurses every single bottle – he doesn’t let a single thing go until he’s happy it’s perfect. Our brews are handcrafted every step of the way – just as craft beer should be.

Over the next six months, we’ve got our sights set on opening our own taproom, creating a venue for people to come together and have a great time – a place to share stories, have a good laugh and enjoy some premium brews – watch this space!” added Gary.
