Suffolk brewer Greene King has again teamed up with the Brentwood Brewing Company from Essex to produce a seasonal beer for summer.
Golden Galaxy, jointly developed by Greene King senior brewer Craig Bennett and Brentwood Brewing Co head brewer Ethan Kannor, is part of a series of collaborations between the Bury St Edmunds-based company and smaller brewers.
This year has already seen the release of three beers, including Cornish Coast (with the Penpont Brewery, from Altarnun, near Launceston), Bronze Adder (with Mauldons from Sudbury) and World Hop Medley (Hop Back Brewery from Downton, near Salisbury in Wiltshire).
Golden Galaxy (4% alcohol by volume) is described as a golden ale with a malt complexity, an aroma of passion fruit and peaches and a burst of hop character on the tongue. It will be available in pubs around the UK throughout July and August.
Chris Houlton, managing director of Greene King Brewing and Brands, said: “We are proud to work in collaboration with Brentwood Brewing Co. for a second year to brew Golden Galaxy. Based on the roaring success of our partnership last year, we are looking forward to another great response from our customers.”
Ethan Kannor added: “We have thoroughly enjoyed working with Greene King to brew Golden Galaxy. It was brilliant to meet Craig and the team and work together at Westgate Brewery with the same aim – to make great beer! People are already looking forward to seeing Golden Galaxy back on for the summer, which is fantastic.”
