A fresh, juicy sour, crammed with mango flavours and aromas, gentle tanginess and a slightly saline edge.
A pilsener-style lager from East Anglia using Amarillo and Cascade hops, this is winningly crisp and chuggable. A great everyday beer.
We were really impressed with this award-winning 0.5% pale ale. Triple hopped, it's absolutely rammed with bold citrus and piney flavours that makes for one of the best non-alcoholic beers we've tried.
A classic American pale ale with a piney, citrus kick, this is great served with spicy summery food like tacos or kebabs. A percentage of each beer sold also goes to the People's Captain Foundation to support mental health initiatives.
Lower-calorie beers are often bland lager-type affairs so this juicy, fruit-packed hazy is a welcome lighter addition to summertime drinking. A perfect BBQ partner.
Fourpure’s whole range has undergone a summer makeover. This crisp, refeshing IPA (previously known as Easy Peeler) packs in the citrus fruit for a light and lovely thirst-quencher.
A slightly hazy, beautifully crisp sour that doesn’t tip over into mouth-puckering, C-Sharp Sicilian Lemon & Citra Sour balances the lower acidity and perfume of Sicilian lemons with crisp Citra hops. A perfect intro to the sour style, this is a tart summer refresher.
All summery tropical hoppiness, this winningly accessible IPA has a beautifully soft mouthfeel thanks to the addition of oats in the beer.
This crisp bottle, cut with gently sweet (not cloying) elderflower, has delicate floral notes that make it surprisingly complex.
