Leeds based Amity Brew Co has collaborated with honey company Hilltop on a Belgian golden ale aimed at home-schooling parents.
Honey, I Flunked The Kids has been released to coincide with the half-term holiday as multi-tasking fathers and mothers enjoy a break from the home classroom.
Co-founder of Amity Brew Co and father of two school-aged boys, Richard Degnan, said: “I’ve got huge respect for all the parents out there juggling home-schooling with work and lockdown life. It’s so hard!
“We wanted to launch a sweet treat to act as a pat on the back to those home-schooling parents this half term… you did it! Put the phonics and maths away, crack open a beer, and enjoy a few minutes of quiet time.”
Founder and managing director of Hilltop, Scott Davies, added: “Honey is the perfect pairing for a smooth beer. It counters the hop bitterness, but also the sugar ferments to create the alcohol. We all deserve a treat this lockdown and this beer will hopefully raise a smile or two with exhausted parents and beer fans alike!”
The beer is available in cases of 12 or six 440ml cans via amitybrew.co.
