Wadworth brews up 5 new ales for 2020

Wadworth’s brewery team based in Wiltshire have been brewing up a new range of seasonal ales ready for drinkers to try in 2020.

The first on the bar in March will be Jug ‘O’ Malt, a rich malty mild featuring coffee, toffee and caramel flavours.  Following this, Amarillo Gold, a golden ale will be available throughout May.  Amarillo Gold uses the single hop Amarillo to create a floral and citrus aroma.

For the many sporting events scheduled in 2020 including the Euros, Wadworth has created a new beer called Jolly Good Sport which celebrates the many British teams doing so well in various sports from cycling, football to tennis and cricket.  The 3.3% abv ale is crisp and clean to taste making this a great session beer for these events.

For the autumn, Bitter Sweet will feature from September, a deep red bitter brewed from using elderberries with the bitterness coming from British and American Hops added late in the boil.  Following this, November will provide Coconut Shire at 5.1% abv.  This rich and mellow English Porter has dark fruits combined with the mellow aroma of coconuts giving the beer a distinctive flavour.

Speaking about the new beers, Jonathan Thomas, commercial director for Wadworth said, “These new seasonal beers have a totally new look and some fantastic new flavour combinations.  We know cask ale drinkers have their favourite ales, but they also like to try new ones, so these innovative new beers have created something new for everyone whether they’ve always drank cask ale or are just starting on that journey”.

Wadworth as an independent family brewery has been brewing cask beer since 1875 and has a core range of beer available all year round which includes the iconic 6X, Henry’s IPA and Horizon. It has also relaunched its popular rugby ale Dirty Rucker and will be rebrewing its new Christmas ales, A Winter’s Tail and Your Good Elf in 2020.
