Skinner’s teams with River Cottage


Skinner’s Brewery has teamed up with Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall’s River Cottage to create a new English Pale Ale.

River Cottage awarded Skinner’s the contract after speaking to a number of national ale producers and deciding on the Truro-based beer crafters.

The beer is brewed using the hops from Hereford and malted barley from Restronguet Barton Farm in Cornwall.

Skinner’s chief executive, Steve Skinner, added: “Our collaboration with River Cottage has encouraged us to rediscover the finest ingredients grown in our back garden.

“We are really proud to have created a perfectly balanced beer that goes down brilliantly with a well-sourced meal, or on its own as a refreshing pint.”
