Royal Wave is Skinner’s Diamond Jubilee special

Posted in BEER NEWS, CORNWALL NEWS  |  Posted by   |  04.23.2012  |  1 Comment

Cornish brewery Skinner’s is marking the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee with a commemorative ale. Royal Wave will be available nationwide throughout May until the end of the Jubilee bank holiday.  It is a 4.4% ABV hoppy and fruity golden ale.

Skinner’s characteristic cartoon artwork on the pumpclip realises a play on words, with Her Majesty portrayed surfing with dignity in full regal attire on a Cornish wave.  She is not alone – a trusty corgi is also in attendance on her shortboard.

Chief executive, Steve Skinner, said: “’Royal Wave’ is Skinner’s original way of celebrating the Queen’s reign.  The beer is a really lovely summer ale that is perfect to toast the Sovereign with.  The artwork that we’ve developed for the beer is unique and brings a little Cornish humour to the celebration.”

The artwork is created by Nick Beringer and Stuart Thorn and the name of the beer was selected through an in-house competition.  Pat Sargeant, a tour guide with the brewery, came up with the title.

    Durham Brewery's Russian Imperial stout Temptation (10% ABV) is now available in a 750ml swing-top bottle. There's a swing-top, too, for Belgian-style Bede's Chalice (9%) and the brewer's 20th anniversary Imperial pale stout 1994 (10.2%) • A new Belgian-made beer has been created — for dogs. Snuffle Dog Beer is non-alcoholic, of course, and is brewed with beef or chicken stock and malt barley extracts, plus mineral oils. It comes in 25cl bottles and in four packs • Fresh off the bottling line at BrewDog are festive brews Hoppy Christmas (7.2% ABV) and Santa Paws (4.5%). The former is a hop bomb with citrus, papaya and pineapple notes, and the latter a decadent Scotch ale brewed with heather honey. Also new in bottle is Konnichiwa Kitsune, a citrus-packed double IPA. It is a Japanese-inspired, yuzu-infused imperial IPA, brewed with Amarillo, Cascade and Citra hops • Brews from Hammerton Brewery, Little Beer, and Anspach & Hobday have been added to the listings at online retailer EeBria, along with Yarde Ciders, from Devon.
