Saltaire steps up strength with new range

13 February, 2015

Saltaire Brewery has created a range of beers for consumers looking for more intense flavours.

SaltaireXS is a limited range of 33cl bottles of more alcoholic, stronger-flavoured brews.

The first in the collection are Imperial Stout (8.9% abv), made with English and German roasted malts, and Imperial IPA (9.5% abv), described as a classic New World IPA.

Saltaire managing director Ewen Gordon said: “As beer drinkers become savvier and more adventurous in their search for exciting beers, we want to offer a more challenging range of beers, high in strength, intensely flavoured, drawn from the classic styles of the beer world.

“We’ve challenged our brewers to concentrate the flavours, experiment with new techniques and produce beers at the leading edge of world beers. At all times we seek to balance the flavours so the beers remain intense, but pleasurable on the palate.

“We’ve started with two classic styles, but have plans to extend the SaltaireXS range later this year with more classic beers, traditionally brewed true to style but with a contemporary twist.”

Both new beers will be shown for the first time at Craft Beer Rising at the Old Truman Brewery in London on February 19 and 22.
