Bowland Brewery has added a knockout new beer to its core range.
Boxer, a straw coloured blonde with gooseberry flavours, is the latest real ale from the Clitheroe-based craft brewery. It lines up on the bar alongside the other core beers from Bowland: Hen Harrier, Pheasant Plucker, Bowland Gold and Buster IPA.
Said brewery MD, Warren Bennett said: “Boxer is a reinvention of our AONB brew. We are delighted to launch it as one of our core range, available all year round.
“We also brew a selection of occasional and seasonal beers. Autumn, an aromatic, herby and spicy red ale, is now available and orders are currently being taken for our October offering, Spooky, a copper coloured drink with an initial soft fruity character giving way to a dry coffee finish.”
Pheasant feather artist, Clare Brownlow, has created the artwork for Boxer’s pump clip and bottle labels – she is responsible for all of the drawings used for Bowland’s core range.
Marketing manager Heidi Kettle said: “The wildlife of Bowland is a theme of our beers and the hen harrier, a pheasant, a wild boar and a bird of prey already feature on our pump clips. Boxer is depicted with a hare, another native of the Forest of Bowland, the area of outstanding natural beauty which is on our doorstep and from where we get our name.”
Bowland Brewery was named best drinks producer in the Lancashire and Cumbria Life Food and Drink Awards 2016 and won the Producers and Makers Award in the Lancashire Tourism Awards 2016.
