A Brewer’s Guide to Top Summer Tipples
Summer is here and that means it’s time to hit the beer garden.
When it comes to lager, beer or cider, it can be hard to find a brew that really quenches your thirst. But to make things a little easier, here are our tips on top summer tipples – direct from some of the UK’s best breweries.
Andrew Birkby, Wildcard Brewery
“Our King of Hearts blonde beer is flying out the door now summer has arrived. It carries a great hop aroma, whilst being light and refreshing to drink. Perfect to enjoy in the summer sun.”
Paddy Johnson, Windsor and Eton Brewery
“Our Knight of the Garter is a 3.8% golden ale that is straw coloured with light biscuit malt notes. However, the beauty of this beer is the liberal use of Amarillo hops that give it a gorgeous zesty character. Sunshine in a glass.”
Aster Sadler, Sadler’s Brewery
“When the weather hots up, I like to cool down with a bottle of our Thin Ice. Hoppy and pale with plenty of crisp bitterness, it’s the perfect summer refresher.”
Caron Archer, Padstow Brewing Company
“Padstow Sunshine is a 7% craft cider fermented with a champagne yeast. The cider is light and golden and uses a unique blend of apples to provide a distinctively mouthwatering finish. This cider has a steady following in Cornwall and beyond, and it’s now also available as a still version in a three-litre pouch. A top summer tipple!”
