Independent London craft brewery Anspach & Hobday have announced the launch of their brand-new beer in collaboration with Maldon Salt to celebrate Maldon’s 140th anniversary.
The Sea Salt & Lime Gose is a vibrantly tart and fresh Gose infused with lime zest, lime juice and Maldon’s finest sea salt. Hopped with Loral and brewed using Philly Sour yeast, the beer is fruity, refreshing and at 3.5%, proves to be a sessionable summer beer.
The Sea Salt & Lime Gose is on sale now to both trade customers and consumers. Trade customers can purchase directly through Anspach & Hobday (email@example.com). For consumers they can purchase through the Anspach & Hobday webshop now and our venues, The Arch House in Bermondsey and The Pigeon in Camberwell, from Thursday 21st July.
Simon James, Innovation Manager at Maldon Salt says: “To celebrate our 140th Birthday, Maldon Salt company are very excited to collaborate with Anspach & Hobday. We wanted to partner with them specifically, as the team appreciate the traditional brewing techniques and styles but embrace modernity and novel ingredients.
We are delighted to have our sea salt flakes in this Lime Gose to add another level of freshness alongside the bright citrus fruits and floral American Hops. In addition to this fantastic beer, we have filmed a companion episode of Salt Stories, with some great behind the scene footage of the brew day.”
Paul Anspach, Co-Founder and Head of Production says: “We have always enjoyed using salt in beer – whether in styles where you would typically expect it such as Goses, or in experimental and progressive styles such as chilli & chocolate Stouts. As well as adding salinity, salt can really enhance the other flavours of a beer, as indeed it does when used in food.
Obviously when one thinks of high quality sea salt only one name comes to mind, and the Maldon salt used in this beer really helps the sharp, citrusy notes of the lime to punch through.”
