Isla Mercer, Sales and Marketing Manager, says: “Entering the cask and real ale market is a really exciting proposition for the brewery. We will be launching our cask ales with a nice, hoppy IPA but have lots more recipes in development for future releases in the upcoming months. We've had a lot of interest from bars and pubs for cask ales and we're looking forward to be able to provide these
alongside our current range.”
The IPA launch sees Lerwick Brewery also launch a new style of branding for its cask collection.
“The new branding is very contemporary and eye catching,” continues Mercer. “The pony will have a different design for every style of cask beer we release. We've had so many people telling us they love the pony so we wanted to feature it more prominently.”
Lerwick Brewery continues to brew and grow its bottled beer range. “60° North, Skipper's Ticket and Tushkar are all doing well,” adds Mercer, “with demand growing across the UK. Our cask business will complement our bottled beer range, whilst giving something different to pubs and bars. We're very excited about this move.”
Lerwick IPA will be available from 25 May 2015.
