PERTHSHIRE’S Inveralmond Brewery has claimed success with its latest beer – before the product was even officially launched.
Rascal London Porter, the third in Inveralmond’s Inspiration Series of beers, which is based on different brewing styles from across the world – took the Champion Beer award at JD Wetherspoon’s recent ale festival.
The beer won a place in the final of the contest after emerging top of the Dark Ales class, and was subsequently voted as the best beer overall by Wetherspoon customers in an online poll.
Rascal will now be featured as a guest ale in JD Wetherspoon pubs in July and August.
“Receiving an accolade as high as Champion Beer at the World’s Biggest Ale Festival, before you’ve formally launched it to the world, shows how Rascal has already cemented itself with a strong fan base,” said Inveralmond managing director Fergus Clark.
“It is great to be able to celebrate other beer cultures through our Inspiration Series and we hope fans will continue to enjoy the new additions, as well as our range of other craft beers available.”
