Bristol Crush: Grapefruit Pale Ale
Bristol is known for many things but for most it is the vibrant communities and party atmosphere that endure in happy memories of the city. Bristolians don’t take themselves too seriously. We built a giant water slide down one of the busiest roads in the centre, this sense of fun and playfulness is one of the things we love best about our city. Bristol Crush is our ode to the place we are lucky to call our home.
There’s nothing that better encapsulates Bristol’s energy than St Paul’s Carnival, a celebration of the African Caribbean culture of Bristol that brings sunshine to the streets of the St Paul’s neighbourhood on the first weekend of July. In recent history the festival has struggled to obtain funding, and after a three year hiatus the festival will be back in 2018 to celebrate it’s 50th year. The carnival happens on the doorstep of our brewery and we’re so excited that this mega party is returning to our neighbourhood next year. We looked to this riot of colour and fun as inspiration for Bristol Crush and the Caribbean soft drink Ting captured our imagination.
Brewed with the addition of grapefruit, Bristol Crush is packed with bright, bold citrus hops producing a beer that is refreshing, vibrant and tropical.
