Organic beer producer Stroud Brewery has launched a new range of small batch limited edition brews.
With an ABV of 4%, Light Organic Lager, or LOL, is gently hopped and has been brewed using traditional lager malt and organic Brewers Gold and Saaz hops. It is available in 330ml bottles.
The second ale of the small batch brews, Melba, is a collaboration with Toast Ale. Brewed using unsold organic Hobbs House Bakery bread (Organic Wild White and Organic Light Rye Sourdough), the 4.4% ABV pale ale is made using organic Simcoe, Chinook and Mandarina Bavaria hops.
Melba is available in cask, keg, and 330ml bottles, with 5% of the revenue going to Stroud District Foodbank.
Greg Pilley, MD of Stroud Brewery, said: “We have developed this range of small batch brews primarily to meet customer demand.
“As we see sales of organic produce up year on year, with sales of organic beer, wine and spirits up by 8.7%, it’s important that we are leading this from a brewery perspective and offering as much diversity in the category as we can.
“These small batch brews we believe will also encourage new audiences into the category to try different styles of craft ales.”
Both beers are available to trade customers nationwide via Eebria.
