Caledonian announces Rugby brew

Caledonian Brewery is preparing to release a Rugby World Cup brew ahead of the competition that kicks off in September.

The latest addition to Caledonian Brewery’s monthly guest beer line-up, the pale ale, called Drop Kick, is brewed with hops from tournament favourites including England, Australia, France, New Zealand and South Africa and its home country of Scotland.

The 4% abv brew has a bright golden colour and a “grassy, zesty aroma with a fresh hoppy kick”, says Caledonian. “Drop Kick is a lively, bold ale, brewed as a perfect accompaniment to the excitement of a match”, it says.

Drop Kick is available to order on draught nationwide from 27 August 2015 and throughout September.

Andy Maddock, of Caledonian Brewery comments: “The Rugby World Cup gave us an ideal opportunity to create an ale that feeds into the excitement surrounding the event.

“Using hops from around the world felt fitting and the result is a punchy flavoured ale that is a celebration of beer and sport. Available throughout the tournament, Drop Kick is the perfect partner for every match.”
