Finely crafted

In pursuit of the perfect craft beer there are no lengths Anibal Torrres of Studio 6 Bar and Restaurant won't go. by Owen Rice

Over the last few months Anibal Torres has travelled to Sheffield and Chesterfield to explore new techniques that improve the sterilisation and filtration processes, producing cleaning water and tastier beer. ‘In the north they know a few things about new, modern craft beers as well as the old traditional varieties,’ explained Anibal.

He also travelled to the vineyards of Tuscany to discover the similarities between smaller volume, high quality wine-making and fine, hand-crafted ales.
“brewing can be an expensive hobby

‘Brewing can be an expensive hobby!’ laughed Anibal, ‘and most small brewers don’t have sufficient outlets for their product.’ With the thriving trade at his bar and restaurant this is unlikely to be an issue for Anibal.

Drawing on his recent experiences and travels he is now fine tuning two ales of his own; a dark brown ale (not a stout) and a kiwi flavoured pale ale which should be ready by Christmas.

There is now a new Vegan Menu available at Studio 6 with Christmas Food and Drink Menus also online. If you are wandering along the Southbank and need a little Christmas spirit, pop in for a glass of Mulled Wine at Gabriel’s Wharf between ITV Television Centre and the OXO Tower. You can sit inside or out and soak up the relaxed atmosphere of the riverside in comfort.
