10 Hours in L.A. has landed

Round Corner Brewing Release 5.2% Pacific Pale Ale.

MELTON MOWBRAY, 21st April 2023.

Round Corner Brewing have today launched 10 Hours in L.A., a 5.2% Pacific Pale Ale, their fourth official Market Edition beer of 2023.

10 Hours in L.A. is a beer the brewery have brewed in previous years, however for this year, it’s been changed up with it now very much a Pacific Pale Ale.

This pale and gently hazy beer is all about Pacific new world hop aromas, with a much softer bitterness compared to its previous style in 2022. It’s a beer which is pleasantly dry hopped with two types of New Zealand hops – Riwaka and Motueka. Both hops are grown at the top of the South Island in New Zealand and drive big tropical fruit aromas.

Named after the infamous stop over all Kiwis make in Los Angeles on their way to the United Kingdom, it’s now the layover these New Zealand hops have made on the way to the brewery and into this Pacific Pale Ale.

This latest beer comes after the success of the breweries previous Market Edition, Saint Cloud. A Belgian Style Witbier which has proved incredibly popular with customers, having now sold out in keg and with limited available remaining in 440ml can.

The brewery have packaged 10 Hours in L.A. in both 30L kegs and 440ml cans, with the brewery sticking to this new larger can size after the success of Saint Cloud.

10 Hours in L.A. is now available to order from Round Corner Brewing’s webshop – – or at Round Corner Brewing’s Taproom at the home of the brewery in Melton Mowbray Market.

Round Corner Brewing’s Head Brewer and Co-Founder, Colin Paige said: “This year we’ve really changed it up with 10 Hours in L.A. and it’s now, very much so, a Pacific Pale Ale. This style of beer is all about pleasantly dry hopped beers, with New Zealand and Australian hops. However, for 10 Hours in L.A. we’ve stuck to New Zealand hops, which we adore.

“For us, a Pacific Pale Ale is all about making a supremely approachable beer, where we’ve focused on big whirlpool hop and dry hop aromas. This year we’ve gone for a lighter malt base in colour and body to really let the hops shine, and there’s a high proportion of wheat in the malt grist to create a silky soft palate.

“This is a style we really love here at Round Corner Brewing, and you can expect to see more of this from us in the future.”

Round Corner Brewing’s CEO and Co-Founder, Combie Cryan said: “Launching 10 Hours in L.A. is a moment we’ve been counting down to as a brewery. For us this beer has returned better than ever before and with its re-style to a Pacific Pale Ale we think it’s taken it up another level.

“For us we not only love the beer, but also the name, as it has a deeper meaning for Colin (Paige) and I. Having both met and lived in New Zealand we’re no stranger to this journey and in fact, the Los Angeles layover. So, it’s a beer which hits all the right points for us, and our team and customers too.

“We’ve had an incredible uptake in pre-orders for this beer from our trade and retail customers, so we’re delighted they’re matching our excitement. We’ll be officially launching it in our Taproom in Melton Mowbray tonight (Friday 21st April) at 5pm, alongside many of our incredible trade customers who’ll be stocking this beer. We’ll be posting about them on our social media, so everyone can get the chance to try it!”
