FogHorn Brewhouse Roaring Forties Best Bitter

FogHorn Brewery

Trace a line through Shawn Sherlock's brewing career and rare are the moments there isn't some form of English-inspired bitter either pouring through a handpump somewhere or in a bottle; the New World-meets-Old World Punch & Judy was an old favourite here at Crafty Towers.

The beer that fits into that lineage most regularly at FogHorn is Roarie Forties and, again, it's a new-meets-old affair. The old comes in the form of rich English malts; the new in the shape of fruity New World hops. The brewers say to expect "a toffee and caramel backbone to support a cleansing bitterness and fruity New World late hop character."

It's likely to be found on the brewpub handpump and, they reckon, best enjoyed by the pint.
