With summer just around the corner, it's time to introduce the latest addition to our portfolio of Dartmoor's finest real ales.
This week we launched our newest seasonal real ale, Summer Best at the Kings Arms in South Zeal on Dartmoor. Situated on the edge of Dartmoor, the Kings Arms is thought to be over 500 years old and until 50 years ago, operated as a cider house selling rough cider to miners from the local Ramsley Copper Mine. Although, since stocking our range of beers it's certainly been converted into a fine real ale pub!
Some of our customers have been requesting that we brew a lower gravity beer (with a lower alcoholic content) that's still full of flavour – we took these suggestions on board and Summer Best was born. At 3.7% ABV, Summer Best is a lighter option, perfect for a refreshing alfresco pub lunch during the balmy summer months.
This beer adds to our portfolio of permanent beers, Jail Ale (4.8% ABV), Legend (4.4& ABV), Dartmoor IPA (4% ABV).
Summer Best will be available at selected pubs until September 2014.
