ST. PAUL, Minn. (Aug. 3, 2016) – Summit Brewing Company today announces the release of 30th Anniversary West London-Style Ale, the third of four celebratory beers in the brewery’s 30th Anniversary Series. The beer will be released at a Summit 30th Anniversary Celebration from 10 a.m.-4 p.m. Sunday, Aug. 7 at Brit’s Pub in downtown Minneapolis. The event will feature the inaugural tapping of West London-Style Ale served alongside other Summit favorites, plus live music by Freddie Manton & The Southsiders and Hard Day’s Night Beatles Tribute Band. West London-Style Ale will then be available on draught and in six- and 12-packs of 12-ounce cans the second week of August.

Combining the classic Maris Otter ale malt with traditional and modern hop varieties, head brewer Damian McConn produced a sophisticated yet highly-drinkable British-Style Best Bitter. It is medium-bodied with toasty, graham cracker malt flavors, complemented with hop flavors and aromas of loganberry, redcurrant, grapefruit and lime.

 

“The 30th Anniversary Series showcases the unique qualities and attributes that have helped drive Summit forward over the last three decades,” said McConn. “We kicked off the series early in the year with a powerful Double IPA, followed up in late spring with a classical German Keller Pils, and now we’re staying across the pond as we enter August with a thirst-quenching session ale packed with flavor. West London-Style Ale presents complexity, character and drinkability in a low ABV beer with an assertive hop profile that doesn’t overwhelm beer lovers.
