Meantime launches new Pilot Series beers

08 September, 2016

Meantime Brewing has launched another batch of beers in its Pilot Series collection, including a Belgian-style beer with a touch of Welsh chillies.

The craft brewer announced the launch of The Pilot Series – a range of small-batch beers brewed in its Pilot Brewery – earlier this year.

The series aims to showcase new and unique beers, with a new style release every two weeks.

The latest beers to join the range are African Queen, a 6% abv single-hopped IPA with citrus and beery aromas; Time to Time a 4% abv modern-take on a traditional Saison de Nuit, with vibrant fruit flavours and a slight hoppy aroma and Lost Summer, which is a 5% abv fruity, hoppy lager for Summer. The final newcomer is Feisty Cali Belg, a 6% abv Belgian-style beer with fruity American hop flavours and a touch of Welsh chillies.

Richard Myers, marketing director at Meantime, said: “Meantime has always strived to introduce the British public to a wide range of great beers and open their minds to trying something different. The Pilot Series gives us the perfect opportunity to continue to push the boundaries of modern craft and have a bit of fun experimenting with some unusual beer styles. We’re proud to say that innovation and quality are the heart of everything we do, so expect to see some great beers coming out of The Pilot Brewery in 2016.”

Meantime will be running a series of exclusive tasting nights throughout the year to showcase the beers.
