Special Beer Releases

Orbit Beers is also launching three special brews to celebrate their anniversary:

  • Neu Altbier (4.7%): A deep amber beer with nutty, toasty malt flavors and a long-lasting bitterness, returning by popular demand.
  • Damson Blend: Cuvée de Cologne 2024 (6.8%): A complex, oak barrel-aged Nico on damsons, offering a unique blend of oaky vanilla, floral notes, and a jammy sweetness.
  • Nico Köln Lager (4.8%): An award-winning Kölsch-style lager, known for its delicate balance of malt and hops, and a crisp, dry finish.

Founder Robert Middleton expressed his gratitude:

“We are so happy to be celebrating our 10th year in the same site under the railway arches in Walworth that we started up in back in 2014, and we want to celebrate with the community that have supported us throughout. Our home in Walworth has witnessed Orbit’s steady, organic growth from one arch to two, and now four. And we’ve no plans to go anywhere. We want to extend our heartfelt thanks to all who have been part of the Orbit Beers journey. Your support, enthusiasm, and love for our beer have made these ten years a true joy for me and the team. We look forward to raising a glass with you at our birthday events and embarking on the next chapter of our brewing adventure together."
