We’re dead excited to announce the launch of two new brands to our ever-diverse range of beers from Black Sheep! Always keen to flex our brewing muscles and create beers that are new and innovative, the new beers take the form of two new beer styles which we’ve never previously released on a large scale.
In a first for us here at Black Sheep, we’ve brewed our first ever Sour which has now gone live in 440ml cans nationwide through our friends from Tesco. Taking inspiration from Limoncello cocktails and fizzy lemon sherbets, Limoncello Sour is a 3.8% Kettle Sour packed with Lemondrop hops and a glug of tart lemon juice. The result is a genuine, cheek-sucking sour packing big lemon notes and a sweet, dry finish. With summer fast approaching, Limoncello Sour will offer the perfect refreshment on those hot summer days in the garden and at the relatively low-abv. of 3.8%, you’ll be able to crush a few cans over the course of an afternoon session.
Also new to our range is our Pineapple Milkshake IPA, available in 330ml cans nationwide from our friends at Morrisons. Packing a monumental tropical punch with big notes of mango, citrus and of course, Pineapple(!), this juicy IPA is a punchy beer brewed with lactose to add extra mouthfeel as well as a very delicate hint of vanilla. The abv. of 5.3% adds extra body leaving a deliciously smooth beer with bags of character and kick!
Both of these beers were originally created as part of our 5 Barrel Project which continues to produce some amazing specialist craft beers with no constraint on style, abv. or ingredients. More will be on the horizon from this project so do keep your eyes peeled and follow them on Twitter and Instagram.
