St Austell Brewery is launching a range of limited edition beers inspired by the travels of its head brewer Roger Ryman.
The globally inspired range of small batch brews will explore some of Rogers’ favourite beer styles taken from his visits to some of the great brewing and beer drinking locations around the world.
The new range, which will be created in the brewery’s Small Batch Brewery, launches with EUREKA, a 5.9% American Pale Ale, which Roger created in collaboration with head brewer Rob Lovatt of Derbyshire based Thornbridge Brewery.
Roger will continue to collaborate with other head brewers to create innovative beers which will mix St Austell’s Cornish malt, with various different ingredients to create the unique and flavoursome styles.
Head brewer, and brewing director, Roger Ryman said, “Thanks to the Small Batch Brewery we now have the facilities to be really inventive. EUREKA is the first of the range and combines Cornish spring water, Maris Otter pale and Rye Crystal barley malt along with Eureka hops and Thornbridge Brewery’s own yeast.
“The globally inspired range will be exclusively available through the St Austell Brewery website store and at the visitor centre shop on site.”
Eureka will be available online from Friday (19th February), and St Austell will launch a new bottle of beer in the world beer club each month. Production of each beer will be limited to a couple of hundred cases for each brew.
Due to the increasing demand for innovative beers, pubs can now sign up to be part of St Austell’s Small Batch Beer Club, where pubs will receive a regular supply of new small batch beers.
