Socmod DIPA with Galaxy, Citra and Nelson brewed simultaneously in zoom (actually whatsapp) collaboration of AF Brew (St. Petersburg, Russia) and North Brewing Co (Leeds, UK).
Concept and artwork are inspired by common cultural and architectural lines: from early Soviet acronyms through Orwell’s ‘ingsoc’ and ‘newspeak’ and to the styles of brutalism and social modernism in the two brewing cities’ architecture.
The name is actually a soviet-style awkward acronym for Russian State Science Center for Robotics and Technical Cybernetics, which is the futuristic space-gothic building on the outskirts of St. Petersburg.

AF Brew is one of the pioneers of Russian craft beer revolution. We started the show in the ‘faraway’ 2012 in St. Petersburg, the most beer-focused and heritage city of Russia. Four years ago we started as a gipsy brewery having launched one of the first accessible craft beers in Russia – Ingria IPA, with the name dedicated to historically disputed region where the city of St. Petersburg is located. Our primary mission has never changed since then – we brew beer which was never brewed before and we keep no rules. November 2016 we turned the biggest page in our history: we finally built our very own brewery in our home city. The brewery is located on the historical site of 18-19th century city brewery and we did our best to make it a very nice and devoted place to brew and to spend time in. The open plan site with 20 hl brewing system and 400 hl fermentation capacity is supposed to grow twice in two years. It is already a home base for all our brews, collaborations and guest projects. It’s coupled with a barrel-room full of various : stuff and a taproom to drink, talk and have fun around.
