NorthDown Brewery work with Prima Donna

NorthDown Brewery
This year is a super special release working with the fine folk at new hop collective ‘Hop-Along Thanet’ – A group of over 30 domestic growers have planted Prima Donna hops in their gardens we’re adding these to an English-style Pale Ale – Pure Green Hop satisfaction. The Hop-Along collective managed to yield 16kgs of hops this year so off to a flying start.

NorthDown Brewery – Hop Along English Pale Ale (4.5%)

Freshly picked peak season Prima Donna hops courtesy of Thanet Hop Collective ‘Hop-Along’ provide a heady aroma of candied citrus peel, cedar and green tea. We’ve kept the malt base simple with Extra Pale & Carapils malt to let the vibrant fresh hops shine. A gentle pithy bitter finish makes this a perfect pint.
