In time to coincide with offshore wind week, Docks Beers has launched 3.5% ABV session IPA Wind Power in can.
The striking green and white can design features offshore wind turbines, a wind farm engineer, and the Orsted Edda Mistral ship. It has been brought to life by Kirk Arnold at the brewery’s design agency, Source Four, in Ayelsby.
Brewery director Shahram Shadan said: “This beer is unashamedly inspired by the offshore wind industry which is reshaping our town and has re-focused our future on the docks.
“The UK is pioneering offshore wind, with more capacity installed in our waters than any other country. It’s amazing to see Grimsby emerge as the world’s leading hub for the operations and maintenance of these gigantic feats of engineering that are being constructed in the middle of the North Sea.
“The whole process matches the hard work ethic of Docks Beers and so we
wanted to pay an homage to the sector. We would like to dedicate Wind Power to all the industrious offshore wind employees who we are proud to see drinking in our taproom. We hope this new beer is to their liking.”
Head brewer and director Mike Richards added: “Even though it is our lowest strength beer, Wind Power is a surprisingly full bodied IPA. It is bittered with Ultra hops and has malt-induced hints of biscuit followed by a lush, piney, resinous finish from a mix of Ekuanot, El Dorado and Azacca dry hopping.
“The beer is immediately available to buy in our taproom, and from next
week it will be available from our web shop.”
