Chevallier Brewing Co. Launches First Dry Hopped Lager

The Chevallier Brewing Co. is aiming to give punters something fresh, fruity and full of flavour with Suffolk Blonde, re-introducing what was the first dry hopped lager in the UK after an absence of a decade.

Produced using Chevallier Heritage malted barley, The Suffolk Blonde dry hopped lager is a clean, golden lager with a tropical fragrant citrus aroma, and a clean and refreshing palate. The dry-hopping means that it is light in body, with deceptively assertive flavour from the amarillo.

Using the best-quality barley from the heart of farming country in East Anglia, the new dry hopped lager is ABV 4.8% and brewed in East Anglia by Bruha Brewing.

“It is very exciting to be able to bring back the first dry hopped lager to the UK,” comments Henry Chevallier Guild, founder of The Chevallier Brewing Co., former owner of Aspall, and 4 times great grandson of the Reverend John “Barley” Chevallier, who first propagated the Chevallier Barley on the Aspall estate 2 centuries ago.

“We believe Suffolk Blonde will be a very popular choice for those looking for a session beer that is extra refreshing and packed with flavour,” adds Henry.

The Chevallier Brewing Co.’s new dry hopped lager will be available to the on and off trade nationwide, on draft, keg and in 330ml cans. RRP £3.60
