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.
