We've teamed up with Cornwall’s Skinner’s Brewery to create an English Pale Ale – grown and produced in the UK and now available nationwide via the online supermarket Ocado.
We awarded Skinner’s Brewery the prestigious contract back in 2013. The beer is brewed using the best
English grown hops from Hereford and malted barley from Restronguet Barton Farm in Cornwall.
Hugh and the team at River Cottage worked closely with Skinners to create the ale, with all-English ingredients.
Hugh, said: “By sourcing the best English hops – including the exceptional Cascade, recently produced for the first time by UK growers – and combining them with the finest Cornish malted barley, we’ve made a beer that’s high in complex aromatics, with floral, cedar and citrus notes, and a long bitter-sweet finish. I hope you love it as much as we do!”
Steve Skinner from Skinner’s, said: “Our collaboration with River Cottage has encouraged us to rediscover the finest ingredients grown in our back garden.
“We are really proud to have created a perfectly balanced beer that goes down brilliantly with a well-sourced meal, or on its own as a refreshing pint. It’s a real honor to work with a company as loved and well-known as River Cottage and I am delighted to raise my (pint) glass as a nod to our English brewing heritage."
The River Cottage EPA is available nationwide, in both cask and bottles.
