Say hello, Wave good buy


Rock-based Sharp’s Brewery has launched its first-ever hazy IPA for national distribution.

The 4.6% ABV Solar Wave is a “vibrant, golden, juicy” cask beer, brewed with speciality ingredients, including oats for a “creamy mouthfeel” and Cryo hops for a “distinctive zesty and zingy flavour”.

Head brewer, Aaron McClure, said: “Solar Wave is a bold and revolutionary new beer for us at Sharp’s and it’s been a really exciting time, developing our first ever hazy brew for national distribution.

“We have used new world hops from some of the most modern and cutting-edge suppliers to produce a product with a wonderfully tropical aroma.”

Marketing controller, James Nicholls, added: “Golden beers and IPAs are currently growing in popularity in the cask sector, so it’s the right time for this contemporary beer style to join our portfolio of award-winning beers.”

Solar Wave will be available from April 3 in outlets across the UK and in mini casks via Sharp’s Brewery’s online shop.
