Cunard Collaborates with Dark Revolution to Create Selection of Craft Beers

Luxury cruise line Cunard has partnered with award-winning microbrewery, Dark Revolution, to create a trio of craft beers now available exclusively on Cunard’s Three Queens – Queen Mary 2, Queen Elizabeth and Queen Victoria.

The beverage collection features a ‘Black’ Stout, a ‘Red’ IPA, and a ‘Gold’ Pilsner and are the latest addition to Cunard’s custom drinks collection on board.

Cunard Black is a handcrafted Biscotti Breakfast Stout, inspired by Cunard’s legacy of world navigation with flavours from around the globe. The beer balances flavours of oats and dark roasted British malts with Sumatran coffee, Spanish almonds and Madagascan vanilla to create a stout beer with a touch of sweetness. Cunard Red is a handcrafted IPA with a gentle nod to Cunard’s iconic Transatlantic Crossing, combining American hops and British malts for fruity and citrus flavours and aromas. Cunard Gold is a classic handcrafted Pilsner, with fragrant hops and British malts combining for a German-style Pilsner.

The new craft beers are available on tap, in 12-oz cans and as a Tasting Flight in the Golden Lion Pub on board, joining Cunard’s collection of select drinks including the 3 Queens Gin, Cunard Private Label and Cunard Private Reserve wines.

“Dark Revolution is known for their outstanding quality, balance and finish and we are very excited to partner with the brewery in creating these exclusive blends, adding to Cunard’s exceptional selection of drinks on board,” said Anthony Habert, Senior Manager, Beverage Development, Cunard.

All three Cunard beers are available through the guest room service menu and in all bars and restaurants on board.

The brews are included as part of the World of Drinks ‘Beers Wines & Spirits Option’ and join Cunard’s additional 42 different types of beers and ciders available across the fleet.
