Adnams Ghost Ship has returned…

Ghost Ship returnsLast night, our Ghost Ship returned in dramatic fashion, bursting from the brewery and disappearing as fast as a pint… You can watch what happened here. Ghost Ship was originally conceived as a seasonal brew, but it proved so popular that it was recently made part of our permanent range so it's now available all year round in cask, mini-casks and bottle. Brewed with pale ale, rye crystal and cara malts, we use citra and a blend of other American hop varieties to create some hauntingly-good citrus flavours. Ghost Ship takes its inspiration from Adnams’ 600-year-old haunted pub, The Bell in Walberswick, just across the river from Southwold. This stretch of coast has witnessed many ship wrecks over the centuries. Just a few miles south is Dunwich, once a busy, thriving port, but now just a few historical buildings remain. Most of the town has disappeared forever into the sea. So, why all the Ghostly excitement last night? Adnams Marketing Manager Victoria Savory explains, "Ghost Ship is a fantastic Pale Ale, and we wanted to bring it back in a memorable, creative way, not just follow the norm. It's great to be able to launch it with a bang and a few haunting screams! The evening has been about celebrating all things Ghost Ship and to say thank you to its loyal fans. With the help of mixologist Tim Blake, we now have a range of delicious Ghost Ship cocktails, too." By mysteriously transforming the Adnams Brewery into the haunt of the Ghost Ship we hope to have injected a little fun and intrigue into our deliciously spooky beer. If you're in Norwich tonight, Friday 4th May 2012, then keep your eyes open, the Ghost Ship may find you!
