Bridge Road Brewers
4.6% Strawberries & Cream Wheat Beer. The idea behind the beer was we knew we were releasing it in summer (The is allegedly summer…) so we wanted something that was very easy to drink and a bit different. The Catfish is a bar based on blues and good music as well as beer and when we were thinking about what to do, one of our favorite bands came on the stereo and gave us inspiration. The Blues/Rock classic band Cream, and the song of course was ‘Anyone for Tennis’
Summer, Strawberries & cream…. so that’s why we did this one.
“Anyone For Tennis” is a milk wheat beer with strawberries. It is a take on the iconic strawberries and cream which is a favourite at Wimbeldon. When tasting the beer expect strong strawberry and vanilla notes on the nose combined with slight “bananery” esters from the beer. It has a full body and mouth feel replicating that of the cream along with a slight tartness from the strawberries cutting through the sweetness nicely.
Milk Wheat Beer is a traditional hefeweizen with the addition of lactose sugar. It has also had the addition of vanilla and 100kg of strawberries.
