Jack Brand InnovationTasting notes & ingredients

The hops in Innovation are the stars of the show. We used Boadicea, Columbus and Styrian Goldings hops to create punchy grapefruit flavours and aromas of tropical fruits. These are backed up by wheat and pale ale malted barley which add spicy, biscuit flavours and a slight touch of sweetness. The outcome is a wonderfully moreish IPA, packed full of flavour.

What's the story?

Upon opening our new brewery, Chairman Jonathan Adnams declared, "We should have a beer to celebrate!" Of course, he didn't just see what was lurking at the back of the fridge, oh no. He and the team set about creating one, and this is what they came up with.

Will it work with food?

Of course! Most beers work fantastically as accompaniments to food. Innovation goes particularly well with strong cheeses (think of the flavours you'd find in a great chutney), fruity desserts or spicy curries. Contains barley & wheat.
