Bature Brewery launches new ​​sunshine-filled pale ale ‘Mangoes to Lagos’ in “collaboration of dreams” with Brixton Brewery

Succulent, sweet and bursting with flavour, Lagos-based Bature Brewery is launching a vibrant new pale ale in collaboration with Brixton Brewery, bringing the Nigerian sunshine to London this summer and beyond.

Available from Thursday 20th June, the new ‘Mangoes to Lagos’ tropical pale ale features lashings of juicy, sweet mango sourced directly from farms and markets in Lagos, and represents a fusion between Bature Brewery’s seasonal sensation ‘Mango Disco Juice’ and Brixon Brewery’s ‘Mangoes to Brixton’ – not only showcasing a mutual passion for Nigeria’s finest fruit, but a coming together of cultures, too.

Collaborating across continents, the breweries worked to combine Bature’s target flavour and Naija style with Brixtons technical knowledge, and once the brew was on, creative teams expertly combined Brixton’s Limited Edition labels with Bature’s now iconic colourful art and design.

Starting with the sun-kissed taste of fresh fruit, the hazy, revitalising and totally tropical pale ale is dry-hopped to dial-up the flavour, and a delicious combination of golden malts, a sprinkling of sorghum and succulent mango creates a “cup of pure Nigeria-meets-South London sunshine” that beer lovers will want to sip again and again.

Having already won multiple awards and gained a large international following with its pioneering range of craft beer – the first of its kind in Nigeria – Bature is currently expanding its brewery and taproom ahead of a grand reopening this summer, and hopes its first international collaboration will continue to spread West Africa’s rich and colourful heritage far and wide.

Bayo Ijasan from Bature Brewery said: “With Lagos and Brixton’s finest craft breweries coming together at last, this truly is the collaboration of dreams! We have fused our recipes to create a fruit bowl of a beer, which will transport drinkers to Nigeria’s orchards with its hazy, revitalising and totally tropical mango taste.

“We’ve been the vanguard of the craft beer market in Nigeria, experimenting with local flavours, spices and fruits, and we’ve packed all that experience into our first international collaboration. Our connection with Brixton Brewery goes all the way back to when Bature first began, and Brixton also has a huge West African community, so launching ‘Mangoes to Lagos’ has allowed us to show our connection with the arts, music and cultural scene as a cross reference with Lagos and Brixton. We hope Mangoes to Lagos gets people excited about our beers and the West African scene, and we can’t wait to do more with Brixton and across the globe.”

Francesco Mayell, Co-Head Brewer, Brixton Brewery, said: “We put our heads together and came up with an ambitious yet carefully calibrated recipe that has turned into a beautiful, balanced and supremely drinkable beer. The best part of collaborations like these for us brewers is getting a glimpse into how our colleagues next door or next continent think and sharing hard earned insights.”

Launching 20th June, ‘Mangoes to Lagos’ (4.5% ABV) will be available in both cans and draft at specialist bottle shops and bars around London, as well as up-coming summer festivals, and via Brixton Brewery’s online store here.
