Adnams, the Suffolk brewer based in Southwold, has teamed up with Harbour Brewing near Bodmin in Cornwall to launch the second beer in its 2021 collaboration brew series.
Break Point Farmhouse Pale Ale (4.8%) is inspired by Harbour’s base on Trekillick Farm and the two coastal breweries have joined forces to make a beer with big waves of tropical fruit. The beer also signals Adnams’ commitment to removing plastic from all future 12-pack collaboration brew cases, which marks the next stage of Adnams’ campaign to help build a sustainable future.
Embracing the farmhouse brewing process, Break Point is made with a Norwegian kveik farmhouse yeast strain that creates fruity flavours and aromas by fermenting at a fast rate and a high temperature. The fruitiness is heightened with Citra hops and balanced by a biscuit and caramel note from locally sourced malted barley along with rye from chairman Jonathan Adnams’ farm. The result is a light, juicy farmhouse pale ale.
Each new beer in Adnams’ 2021 collaboration series will support a sustainability commitment, building on the brewery’s eco-friendly policy. In addition to the removal of plastic packaging, all new Adnams’ products will be in cardboard cartoons rather than shrink-wrapped trays. This should reduce plastic consumption by 1.8 tonnes over the next 12 months.
Break Point: £22.99 case of 12 x 330ml cans. It’s on sale in cask form in selected outlets. www.adnams.co.uk
