We've teamed up with our good friends at the Pub2Pub Expedition to celebrate their completion of the world's longest pub crawl, with a very limited edition Expedition IPA - and metal health charity Mind is set to benefit too.
After successfully completing their 27,000 mile journey across 25 countries, from the northernmost pub on the planet, to the southernmost, the Pub2Pub Expedition IPA is a well-deserved thirst-quencher, and is inspired by their epic journey.
We'll let Expedition leader and Plymouth local Ben Coombs explain:
"From the North American craft beer scene, to the innovative stouts of the Bogata Brewing Company, the Pub2Pub Expedition has been an amazing opportunity to experience the incredible variety of the world beer scene for real. And we came away from the eight month odyssey with a real appreciation for what we have here in England – one of the world’s great brewing industries."
During their 8-month journey, the team were feeling inspired to bring some of what they’d experienced back home, and so they challenged their Princetown-based sponsors – Dartmoor Brewery – to produce a drink inspired by their experiences. And, never one to shy away from a challenge, Dartmoor Brewery responded, by producing Pub2Pub Expedition IPA.
As Dartmoor Brewery’s Managing Director Richard Smith explains:
“At Dartmoor Brewery we like nothing better than taking inspiration from our surroundings to brew great beer here in our Dartmoor heartland. However, we also love to look further afield for new directions in which to take our brewing, and this is why we teamed up with the Pub2Pub Expedition, as we share their sense of discovery, and have really enjoyed supporting their journey, and celebrating its successful conclusion by accepting their challenge, and making Pub2Pub Expedition IPA a reality.”
But there’s more to the partnership than just the beer, because for every pint sold, Dartmoor Brewery are donating 10p to the mental health charity ‘Mind’. So hopefully, the beer will not only inspire people to undertake their own adventures, it will challenge taste buds and improve other peoples’ lives as well.
