Twickenham Fine Ales reveals new craft beer range
Twickenham Fine Ales has revealed a new craft beer range, which includes a smoked beer and brews flavoured with coconut and strawberry.
Old Hands is a new range by the brewer featuring five “exciting and previously unexplored by Twickenham” beer styles.
The range includes: Strawberry Saison, a 6% abv brew made with strawberries; Coconut Porter, a 6% abv beer made using roasted coconut and cocoa nibs; Rauch Beer, a 5.2% abv German smoked beer, brewed by Twickenham’s resident German brewer with imported Bamburg beech smoked malt; Session IPA, a 4.7% abv Mosaic dry hopped IPA; and DIPA, a double IPA at 8.5% abv, brewed with Fraser Witney, the national award-winning home brewer.
Ben Norman, marketing director, Twickenham Fine Ales, said: “We are delighted to be able to bring this new, innovative and beautifully-balanced range of beers to the market, with the launch of Old Hands. Our aim is to reach a whole new audience of typically younger, craft beer drinkers who would normally associate Twickenham with more traditional cask beers. We believe right now is a really exciting time for Twickenham and for beer, and we are very much looking forward to continuing to explore the opportunities for exclusive brews that will come hand-in-hand with this range.”
Twickenham has been brewing since 2004 and it claims to be London’s oldest operational microbrewery; there are now around 90 microbreweries in the city. It was also an early adopter of the use of American hops. The brewer now uses hops from all over the world, including England, Germany, Slovenia, USA, Australia and New Zealand.
Old Hands will be available in 33cl bottles and keg formats from this month.
