Beer#7: Turning Point, Chaos Theory. We have a theory, this chaos is going to turn into a festival
Beer#7: Turning Point Brew Co. CHAOS THEORY, Honey & Marigold Oatmeal Pale, 5.0%
Tasting Notes: A full bodied oatmeal pale with added honey and marigold flowers. Sweet and fragrant, these two ingredients work together to make a unique and satisfying beer. First brewed for York CAMRA beer festival 2017. Unfined and unfiltered.
Isn't oatmeal for breakfast? Why would I want it in my beer!? Oatmeal pretty much does what you think it would do to beer, it adds a smooth, and rich enjoyable texture to the mouthfeel due to their high protein and lipid content which increases the viscosity and body of the beer. Typically found in darker beers, such as oatmeal stouts, Turning Point have used this in a pale, which will be interesting to try.
Brewery: Turning Point Brew Co. Is a microbrewery located just North of York in Kirkbymoorside. Their straightforward remit resonates with us; "We are two guys doing what we love: Making modern, interesting beers that we love to drink." Opening in 2017 they've been a regular feature at our bar, and we always look forward to their next interesting beer.
