Shipyard American Pale Ale has become the bestselling ‘Craft’ beer in the UK on-trade. This comes a mere 3 years after this American beer was launched into the UK by Marston’s.
Fred Forsley Managing director of Shipyard ‘we are very excited and happy that Shipyard has been received so well in the UK market, and very proud to be part of the UK craft movement and having our products enjoyed by so many people”
Shipyard APA was born out of a conversation between Master Brewers Alan Pugsley of Shipyard Brewing Co. and Simon Yates of Marston’s. The aim was to craft a classic American style Pale Ale to satisfy the growing thirst of British drinkers for American craft beers. Shipyard APA is dry hopped for greater aroma and flavour with a quartet of four American hop varieties – Chinook, Cascade, Columbus and Centennial delivering a big, bold, brash hoppy beer.
The Shipyard brand family now contains the APA, Rye Pale ale, and an IPA. For more information about the beer and to find your local stockist visit check out our taste finder!Share
