Adnams partners Camden Town on new beer


South TownSuffolk brewer Adnams has teamed up with the Camden Town Brewery in London to create a limited-edition cask beer.

South Town Red Ale is a 4.9% ABV beer, brewed with a selection of Australian hops including Topaz, Summer, Ella and Galaxy, giving aromas of peaches, lychees and tropical fruits.

The beer has also been brewed with malted rye, for a freshly-baked bread taste, and golden naked oats, adding a nutty flavour and a rich smoothness.

The ale is the first collaboration between the two breweries and was jointly developed by Adnams master brewer Fergus Fitzgerald and Camden Town’s master brewer Alex Troncoso.

Due to launch in March, the beer’s hybrid name combines the home towns of both brewers: Southwold and Camden Town.

Fergus said: “We are very excited to be working with Camden and together with Alex we have created a recipe that plays to the brewing heritage and use of modern ingredients and flavours that both our breweries enjoy.

“Collaborations are great fun. We have worked with several US craft brewers. It’s always entertaining and we get a great response from beer fans. We are looking forward to hearing what people think of the look and taste of the beer when it launches next month. ”

Alex added: “On my first visit to Adnams last August I was amazed by the blend of a modern brewery transposed onto a historical backdrop.

“I’m excited to be making my first-ever batch of cask beer with Fergus, using ingredients we both love such as Golden Naked Oats and new-world Australian hops – and that I get to work in the Adnams brewhouse for a day.”

South Town will be available to the on-trade on draught and sold in five-litre mini casks.
