This year we have a limited supply of bottled green hop beer. This batch of Green Swan was brewed with Challenger hops from Townend Farm in Bosbury on Monday 10th September. 30kg of field-fresh, green hops were collected, cones only, in nets and brought back to the brewery to be added to the copper within the hour.
As you sip this bottled green hop beer you'll be transported back to harvest time and you can savour the spicy, cedar and green tea aromas that the Challenger imparts. The ale is light golden in colour and 4.1% in strength so that neither the ABV nor the malt flavours dominate and the fresh, zingy green hops can shine in Green Swan.
With the arrival of Green Swan there are 5 different bottled ales in the Swan Brewery selection: Swan Gold, Arm Breaker, Mortimer Ale, Black Swan and Green Swan. A mixed case from the brewery shop is £23.50 - with 2 or three bottles of each of the beers to make up a dozen in total.
