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!”
