Richard Branson’s Virgin Voyages partners with Wynwood Brewing

Richard Branson, creator of the adults only Virgin Voyages cruise line, has partnered with Miami’s Wynwood Brewing on a new craft beer. The yet-to-be-named English pale ale will be sold exclusively on the Scarlet Lady.

Wynwood used American hops and malts, and an English ale yeast (echoing back to Virgin’s British roots).

Featuring a malty body like a traditional EPA, but slightly more bitter and hoppy, with hints of grapes and fruit on the nose with toffee and caramel in the background, the new brew is a drinker’s beer with the approachability in its taste for the novice. The ale is finished with a little touch of roasted malt that gives it its signature red tint.

The Draught Haus on Deck 7 will be one of the first bars on the Scarlet Lady to serve the pale ale. The bar features 8 taps, bottled craft beers and growler service.

Virgin Voyages is asking for beer fans help in naming the new pale ale. Followers can suggest beer names by commenting on the Instagram post (@VirginVoyages) featuring the beer.

Galaxy hops highlight Anchor’s newest pale ale

Anchor Brewers Pale Ale Galaxy

Anchor Brewers Pale Ale Galaxy, brewed with one of beer’s most coveted hop Galaxy, is now available.

This elusive Australian hop is the highlight of this lastest pale ale, along with Eukanot, Calypso, and Cascade.

“By using the Galaxy hop in this iteration, we salute Anchor’s commitment to innovation and inclusion.  We turn to the voice of our community for feedback on our constant experiments.  The Galaxy hop was used in an experimental beer offered at Anchor Public Taps, our pilot brewery and bar.  Our guests couldn’t get enough of this blend, so we used it as a foundation for this official release.” – Anchor Brewmaster Scott Ungermann

Pipeworks Danger Fruit is back with more prickly pear

Pipeworks Danger Fruit

Pipeworks Danger Fruit is back in action as July winds down. This round, the brewery added more prickly pear fruit.

The base beer is a pale ale, jam-packed with prickly pear fruit, aka Opuntia, aka the “paddle cactus”.

We’ve added even more prickly pear juice to this super summer-smooched sipper. The juice brings an almost briny, watermelon-y flavor to the very light and refreshing pale ale. The color on this is also amazing.

Pipeworks Danger Fruit is available again starting Friday, July 26th in 16-ounce cans and draft. Distribution next week.

Style: Pale Ale (w/ Prickly Pear.)
Availability: 16oz Cans, Draft. Seasonal Release.
Latest Return: 7/26/19

Most importantly, it’s a delicious beer – hoppy and vibrant with a nice coffee character. We’re thrilled to partner with an icon like Dunkin’ again.” – Dan Kenary, Co-Founder & CEO
