An alcohol-free Chuckle from Jump Ship

JUMP Ship Brewing, the Scottish alcohol-free beer company, embraced the summer season this year with the launch of a new alcohol-free sour beer, Chuckleberry Sour. 

Produced using chuckleberries and blackcurrants which were all grown on British farms, Chuckleberry Sour is both gluten-free and vegan. 

“Creating this sour alcohol-free beer has been one of our trickiest beers to brew to date,” said Jump Ship managing director, Sonja Mitchell. 

“A classic sour beer is created with wild fermentation, creating really complex tangy flavours. We let the lactobacillus go wild with our berries for a couple of weeks, creating a crazy, sherbety mix which we added into the main brew.

 “All berries used in the fruity mix have been grown on UK farms and meddled to create a gluten-free and vegan summer serve. 

“Chuckleberries are a hybrid of jostaberry, gooseberry and redcurrant, which is sweet and juicy with a tartness from the blackcurrants for a refreshing beer.”

The new launch comes as Jump Ship prepares to open its new brewery at Rosemain Steadings in Midlothian.
