Suffolk-based St Peter’s Brewery has launched a new range of craft beers, involving a new 330ml version of its distinctive oval bottle.
Included in the new range is a 7%alcohol by volume (abv) Black IPA and the company’s first ever cider, with the smaller bottle also being used to showcase some of the brewery’s existing beers.
Steve Groves, head brewer, described St Peter’s Black IPA as “the Rioja of Black IPAs”.
It is heavily hopped, as with a traditional IPA, but with darker malts delivering a sweetness to balance the high levels of bitterness, hints of raisins, sultanas, sloes and damsons in the taste and dark chocolate and vanilla notes in the aroma.
St Peter’s Cider (4.6%abv) is described as “refreshing, dry and crisp”. Steve Magnall, chief executive at St Peter’s, said: “There is a growing interest in real cider and we felt the time was right for us to bring something completely new to the market.”
