Beer and music... surely the perfect mix? Well, Robinsons certainly think so. The 180-year-old brewery, situated in the heart of Stockport, has revealed a delicious playlist of music themed seasonal ales all for 2019; each inspired by iconic tracks.
Gill Yates, Brands Manager for Robinsons Brewery, explains: “We trialled the ‘big screen theme’ in 2016, and it was such a success we decided to continue the movie-theme throughout 2017 and 2018. Altogether over the 3 years, we have sold 1,686,888 pints of our seasonal beers, representing great popularity amongst our drinkers. However, we don’t like to stand still at Robinsons, so for 2019 we decided to look at the music route instead. We already know that music and beer go hand-in-hand and we always like to release brews which our customers can really enjoy and relate to. Our music themed ales are inspired by well-known classics, so we’re excited for our drinkers to have a taste and have a trip down memory lane.”
Robinsons’ 2019 seasonal range kicks off with Brew Monday; a new order for February and March. This 4.1% abv crisp, dark amber ale projects a fruity aroma and a malty, salty taste – give it a try and tell us now, how does it feel?
I Predict A-nother (pint, obviously) lands in April/May - This moreish little number is a riot of four different hops giving it a fruity and hoppy nose, with a malty hop flavour. It’s all going on and not at all predictable… With an abv of 4%, this riotous amber ale is sure to go down a treat!
This Summer will be the only time you can grab a delicious pint of Robinsons’ June/July seasonal… Right Beer, Right Now! This sharp and fruity blonde glass filler comes with a lower abv of 3.8% and plays to the hedonists out there… let’s have it! A session ale entwined with delicate flavours of grapefruit and citrus that will be sure to put a smile on your face.
Choose ale... Choose Robbie’s... Choose lively. To welcome August/September, choose a pale golden ale with #4 Born Hoppy! With zesty, intense flavours that will blow away any other pale, lifeless pretenders, #4 Born Hoppy is a 4% brew with a strong citrus hop taste that’s definitely not lager, lager, lager. Get real, get hoppy.
To welcome the duskier months of October and November, Robinsons will be introducing a rockin’ red ale: Rock The Cask Bar. Bursting with blackcurrant and toffee flavours, this full-blooded malty delight is certainly an ale with heart and soul. With a well-balanced combination of taste and body, weighing in at a quaffable 3.9% abv, there’s no clash in this cask.
Welcoming in the festive season (or not) is a beer that won’t make you say Bah Humbug. Mr Scrooge has been a festive favourite for the last two years so Robinsons’ has decided to make it their annual Christmas ale. A once a year fruity treat with toffee, blackcurrant and grapefruit citrus flavours, this generous ale is a seasonal gift that just keeps on giving… until it runs out that is. Fill your stockings with this 4.3% copper ale throughout December.
