It’s here. We’re proud to present the third annual Strong Island Ale, brewed by Irving & Co. Brewers which will be hitting the pumps this Friday. We’ll be launching it at The Belle Isle in Southsea on Friday night so pop down and join us for a jar or two! This years Strong Island homebrew competition was won by Tyler Griffin from Ohio currently working over here in Hampshire.
Brewer Malcolm Irving said “The beer is a highly complex blend of subtle malt flavours from a combination of Malted Oats, Wheat and rare Special B and Aromatic Belgian Malt. These subtle malt flavours underpin the heady intense fruity hop flavours from American Citra and Amarillo hop varieties. This should prove to be a very exciting beer and well worth seeking out in pubs round the city and beyond”
The beer will also be appearing this weekend at The Leopold Tavern as part of their 2nd annual beer festival (we’ll be there Saturday!) and the Hole In The Wall amongst many other local pubs.
