New collaboration brew - Bicycle Kick

By Sarah Groves, also posted in News on

New beer alert!

Out now in kegs, and coming soon in 330ml cans in Adnams stores and online, Bicycle Kick Kölner has a fresh and lively kick with biscuity malt flavours, good bitterness to keep you on the edge of your seat, and delicate aromas of fragrant lemongrass with a touch of honey.

It's a truly collaborative beer developed by five other brewers in five countries who've worked together to develop one recipe to be brewed independently in each country and released at the same time. It's brewed to celebrate the glorious game of football  - a beer made for a common purpose, playing by the same rules and on a level playing field, united in the spirit of togetherness for the love of great beer and sport.

The players: Adnams, England; Baird, Japan; Bodebrown, Brazil; Devil's Peak, South Africa; New Belgium, USA; Primus, Mexico. If, like some of us, you're not sure why it's called Bicycle Kick - it's named after a very nifty, quite technical overhead kick!
