Salcombe Brewery Co in Devon has introduced its first keg product, a new citrusy pale ale designed to meet demand for refreshing easy-drinking beers.

Salcombe Pale Ale is dry hopped with Summit and Simcoe hops and has a profile that celebrates the seaside town’s historic citrus fruit trade. It is made with orange, pink grapefruit and anise which would have been found in Salcombe in the 19th century.

Salcombe Brewery describes it as a “classic pale ale with a twist” that meets “the growing demand of millennials to have a refreshing, easier-drinking beer delivered in a stylish and appealing way”. It has ABV of 4.6%.

Brewer Sam Beaman added: “It’s been exciting to create a new beer which we know will have a huge following as it’s so on trend.”

The new beer is available in 30-litre kegs and 330ml bottles. It sits alongside the brewery’s Seahorse, Lifesaver, Devon Amber, Shingle Bay and Salcombe Gold beers.

Salcombe Brewery was founded by John and Gerry Tiner in September 2016.
