Sharp’s brews first stout


Sharp’s Brewery has created its first-ever stout, as part of its Seasonals range.

Cornish Stout launched this week and will be available on draught in pubs and bars until the end of February.

The guest cask has been brewed with roasted barley, wheat and crystal rye, while Apollo hops provide a “resinous aniseed backbone” and slow fermentation gives the beer a “chocolate sweetness”.

Rock-based Sharp’s has also continued its close working partnership with The Eden Project and Cornish Stout has been brewed with coffee beans sourced by The Green Team.

Head brewer Stuart Howe said: “We’re venturing down a road less travelled for us, but feel that Cornish Stout is the perfect beer for a bit of comfort during this bitterly cold winter we’re experiencing.

“We think our customers will really like it.”
