Wimbledon Brewery launches Wimbledon Pale Ale

  • Latest beer from SW19 Brewer is released in time for Wimbledon fortnight
  • “A celebration of our favourite brewing ingredients” says Head Brewer Charlie Long

Wimbledon Brewery are delighted to announce the launch of their latest beer; Wimbledon Pale Ale.

A team effort from Wimbledon’s brewers, Head Brewer Charlie Long describes Wimbledon Pale as  “a sessionable pale ale that punches above its weight.”

Earlier this year, four experimental batches were prepared by the brewing team using their micro-brewery kit. From these, the best elements were chosen to make the finished beer to put into production in Wimbledon’s 30-barrel facility.

Charlie says

“It’s a celebration of our favourite brewing ingredients – a classic malt blend, with the addition of oats for a smooth palate, bittering hops and West Coast US yeast. The nose has lychee and grapefruit aromas, while on the palate, there are grapefruit, pineapple and tropical flavours.”

Wimbledon are hoping the Pale Ale that bears their name will prove an instant hit during June and July, when the Brewery is at its busiest, supplying local and national pubs, bars and restaurants.

Says Wimbledon Managing Director David Bateman,

“We’re delighted to launch this beer at our busiest time of year and look forward to seeing it served in our customers’ pubs across London, the South East and beyond. We plan for Wimbledon Pale to be one of the pillars of our range as we look to the future. The team have worked hard to produce a really accessible beer which reflects our philosophy of the best in brewing traditions, ingredients and expertise. “

Wimbledon Pale Ale is available initially in keg format. The brewery plans to release it in cans later in the Summer.

Notes for editors

From its modern brewhouse base in London SW19, and under the stewardship of Master Brewer Derek Prentice, Wimbledon Brewery follows on from the long brewing traditions in the area, from the monks at Merton Abbey in the 1500s to the original Wimbledon Brewery, which stood in Wimbledon Village in the 19th Century.
