Salcombe Brewery Co has been chosen as the exclusive provider of beer and cider at Rockfish’s eight waterside restaurants, including its newly refurbished Brixham site, which opened at the start of the month.
Salcombe Brewery owner, John Tiner, said: “We have been brewing a golden ale for Rockfish for a number of years, and as two dynamic south west coastal businesses, we have a great deal in common. We are thrilled that this relationship has developed to the point where we are now the sole supplier of beer, lager, and cider across the Rockfish estate.
“Their customers will be able to pair their superb seafood with our fabulous new lager, perfectly balanced IPA, or thirst-quenching cider, all with unique Rockfish branding that reflects both organisations’ love of the sea. We are very excited about this new partnership and the great opportunities for us both that lie ahead.”
Mitch Tonks, owner of Rockfish, said: “The team at Salcombe Brewery has always impressed me with their attitude and core values. There is a lot of synergy between our two companies, with both organisations being incredibly supportive of their local communities and businesses.
“I am very excited about this new phase in our relationship, and we are already in discussions about further plans to work together. I think that our customers will reap the benefits, too, with our fantastic new range of beers and cider which will be available at all our sites, including our flagship Brixham site.”
He added: “We anticipate a very busy summer ahead, and Brixham Rockfish will be the perfect venue to enjoy the freshest seafood in a socially distanced fashion as we have extended the balcony to increase our outdoor seating. There will be plenty of space to enjoy our delicious food, washed down with our new range of Salcombe Brewery’s drinks.”
Using the finest British malt, Rockfish Pilsner (5.4% ABV) has a delicate floral and herbal aroma, derived from the noble Czech and German hops. The gentle malt flavour compliments the bittersweet palate, culminating in a crisp dry finish.
A light session IPA with a long hoppy finish, Rockfish IPA (4.2% ABV) uses some of the best hops the USA has to offer, in Citra, Amarillo and Chinook. These hops result in a citrus-driven aroma and flavour, supported by hints of melon, apricot and peach.
Celebrating a bounty of crisp, delicious West Country apples, Rockfish Sea Cider (4.5% ABV) crashes across the tastebuds in waves of lightly sparkling refreshment. A full-bodied, traditional cider with a medium dry taste, it’s the perfect way to end the day, or start the night.
These new drinks are exclusively available in bottles and on tap (£4.95 per pint) at Rockfish restaurants.
