Sharp’s bottles Sea Fury for off-trade

09 May, 2016

Sharp’s Brewery has unveiled a new bottled Special bitter following “incredible demand” for the existing cask version.

The Cornwall-based brewery has launched the 5% abv Sea Fury into the UK off-trade to tap into the growing popularity of this Special bitter style of beer.

According to the brewer, Sea Fury is “an exceptional example” of this style, offering substance and depth of flavour “without compromising balance and drinkability”. The beer is described as having an aroma of roasted and dark berry notes followed by a sumptuous malty taste, with hints of berry fruits.

The name Sea Fury is inspired by the stormy Atlantic seas that crash into the rugged Cornish coast near Sharp’s Brewery.

James Nicholls, senior brand manager at Sharp’s said: “We are thrilled to be launching our newest, exceptional bottled beer, Sea Fury, into retailers across the country. We hope that drinkers will love its depth of flavour and balanced drinkability as much as we do. Sea Fury perfectly complements Sharp’s growing range of beers available in the off-trade, including Doom Bar – the UK’s number one cask beer – and Atlantic Pale Ale, one of the country’s most exciting enw ales.”
