Tour of Britain beer to be launched
27th August, 2014 by Simon Howland
An English brewery is launching a new beer to celebrate the Tour of Britain.
The Tour will pass the Wiltshire brewery on its way to London.
Box Steam Brewery in Wiltshire will launch its new Well Oiled IPA to coincide with the annual bicycle race passing the brewery site on 12 September.
Box Steam describe the 5.5% beer as having a ‘fresh, hoppy, floral aroma’ with ‘an essence of tropical fruits, zesty orange and grapefruit notes’.
Head Brewer Tom Downes comments: “Well Oiled is a well-balanced golden British IPA which could come in handy when cycling back from your local.”
“Its crisp, lingering finish also makes Well Oiled the perfect accompaniment to watching the race.”
The beer is only available from August to September in Wiltshire and along the route of the race.
The tour runs over eight days from 7-14 September beginning in Liverpool and finishing in London.
