Arkell’s hop into Spring with launch of new beer

Arkell’s Brewery is springing into action with the introduction of a brand new seasonal beer, Spring Hopper.

Launched at an exclusive tasting at The Tawny Owl pub in Swindon, the juicy pale ale is packed full of hop flavour to bring us out of our wintery blues.

Spring Hopper was created by Head Brewer, Alex Arkell, who wanted to craft a refreshing, clean, exciting, hoppy, beer to tempt consumers away from the dark, complex ales enjoyed in the colder winter months and celebrate Springtime. By adding hops in every step of the brewing process, it maximises the tropical fruity punch of the hop selection leaving a rounded smooth finish with little bitterness.

Alex Arkell, Head Brewer said: “Spring Hopper is the perfect brew to help celebrate leaving those cold winter evenings behind and enjoy longer days – and you never know, some sunshine too!

“Brewed to be enjoyed in the pub garden, it’s a great choice of beer to drink over the Easter weekend. It’s a powerful, fruity, hoppy beer and we’re really excited for everyone to give it a try.”

Spring Hopper is available in a selection of Arkell’s pubs across Wiltshire, Gloucestershire, Berkshire, Hampshire and Oxfordshire, and unusually for the local brewery it will be available nationally through Carlsberg and Heineken wholesalers for a limited time only. The brew will also be on sale at The Grape and Grain shop, located on the brewery site in Swindon, to buy in a mini keg.
