Marry me in Rio - cream ale coming on tap soon

From the Danish brewery Amager Bryghus we will soon have Marry Me In Rio-cream ale on tap!

“Brazil… The name alone will bring a smile to the face to most people, whether you have actually visited the country or not. Everybody seems to have an impression of this massive nation. And to many people words such as samba, football, romance, love, sun and beach seem to be what most easily comes to mind. However, naturally Brazil is so much more than bikini girls and beach bums. In the world of beer for instance Brazil is rapidly becoming a hotspot – not only in South America but in the world. Quality domestic craft brewers seem to pop up allover, and great beer imports are being brought into the country. Amager Bryghus is proud to have our beers available in Brazil and we’re even prouder to present this collaboration done with 2cabeças – one of the finest of this new generation of Brazilian craft brewers. The fruit of this joint venture “Marry Me in Rio” is intended to be light and crisp with an enticing hop profile that hopefully will quench your thirst and yet satisfy your need for a beer with character.”

Jack Frost now on tap

We now have Jack Frost on tap!

Jack Frost 4,5% from Fuller’s brewery is a warming ale with blackberries. Brewed with Crystal malt and a dash of blackberries, Jack Frost nips at the nose with a faintly fruity aroma. There are toasted notes, too, from the darker malts while dried-fruit flavours and a hint of brown sugar linger warmly on the palate.
