Arkell’s look forward to Wimbledon with Strawberries ‘n’ Cream beer

The sun is out, Wimbledon starts on July 3rd, and the team at Arkell’s have aced it by brewing their first Wimbledon-inspired summer ale.

Strawberries ‘n’ Cream is a golden-coloured ale brewed with barley, oats and wheat; topped up with hops from around the world, all selected for their summer fruity aromas, and finally a hint of strawberry to round this complex beer off as a refreshing summer pint.

Head brewer, Alex Arkell, said: “We regularly brew beers to celebrate the football, and for the rugby Six Nations. But there are few other events that really celebrate an English Summer than Wimbledon, the oldest tennis tournament in the world.”

He added: “Wimbledon isn’t quite as old as Arkell’s, it’s only been in existence for 140 years, compared to our brewery which is the ripe age 174, but we do accept they’re a bit better known around the world than we are, yet.”

Strawberries ‘n’ Cream beer is available in most Arkell’s pubs from next week.
