Crabbie’s leads beer blend trend with new fiery stout

Leading the way in experimental brewing trends, Crabbie’s has launched a handcrafted stout blend in collaboration with Black Country craft brewer, Sadler’s – the latest addition to The Crabbie’s Crafty Ginger Collection.

Aimed at craft beer lovers and the only ginger stout blend on the market, Crabbie’s Stout is an expert blend of Sadler’s Mud City Stout and iconic Crabbie’s Alcoholic Ginger Beer, it’s dark and moody with an unexpected fiery kick of ginger.

Lucy Cottrell, Crabbie’s, says: “We created Crabbie’s Stout due to the increasing demand for beer blends right now and used this opportunity to create a beer with a real kick! We selected Sadler’s Mud City Stout as the perfect pairing to Crabbie’s Ginger Beer due to its smoothness and nutty, vanilla aroma – the perfect base for setting off the fiery ginger flavour.”

Crabbie’s Stout is ideally served chilled and is the latest beer blend in the Crabbie’s collection, with the popular Crabbie’s IPA having been released late last year.

The root of Crabbie’s Ginger Beer’s distinctive fiery taste dates back to 1801 in Leith, Edinburgh, where the array of ingredients and spices were coming into the port from the Far East. Inspired by this, John Crabbie began creating his legendary blends; establishing himself as a drinks pioneer across Scotland. Steeped for up to six weeks, before it gets the Crabbie’s stamp of approval, Crabbie’s boasts a deliciously spicy flavour from its fresh ginger root.

Crabbie’s Stout has an ABV of 4.2% and is available from Amazon, £33.95 for 12 x 500 ml.
