Award winning Irish craft brewery Franciscan Well has announced the launch of an exclusive brew: the Celebration Brew, a specially crafted limited edition Hopfenweisse beer, launched to mark the momentous year the Cork craft brewery has enjoyed in 2016. Originally brewed for entry in the World Beer Awards 2015, where it picked up a bronze medal in the Wheat Beer Category, Celebration Brew is now available in select on trade outlets for a limited time only.
Developed by Franciscan Well head brewer Peter Lyall, ‘Celebration Brew’ is a 5% ABV full bodied Hopfenweisse wheat beer with a light amber appearance and an aroma of mild spices and herbal hop. The unique taste depicts banana and clove flavours complemented by a soft noble hop spiciness and finishes with a balanced lingering bitterness. The Hopfenweisse matches perfectly with Asian flavours, warm salads and stir-fry dishes.
Commenting on the exclusive Celebration Brew, Franciscan Well founder Shane Long said:
“From the opening of our new expansive brewery in Cork City, to the recent unveiling of our new brand identity and the launch of our 330ml can range, 2016 has been a significant year for Franciscan Well.
“Over the years Franciscan Well has become synonymous with innovation and we see our latest ‘Celebration Brew’ as a great example of this. The award winning brew is the product of several iterations, tweaks and tests which the team put great time into to perfecting. We are delighted to be giving you an exclusive opportunity to try the award winning beer, bringing it to fans of Franciscan Well as a thank you for the support in what has been a great year for us.”
