Quantock Brewery celebrates with new Milestone 1500
Quantock Brewery is toasting its 1500th brew with a limited-edition beer, Milestone 1500. Based in Bishops Lydeard, the Quantock Brewery team is looking forward to brewing many more beers for loyal and new customers to savour.
Cheryl Ford, Managing Director and Co-Founder of Quantock Brewery comments, “With everything the last 18 months has brought, it has felt at times like we’ve had mountains to climb but like many other businesses we’ve tried to keep innovating to survive and focus on our customers. Investing in our onsite canning line last summer meant we’ve been able to keep the beer flowing, keep up with demand and keep on creating new beers. Thanks to everyone who continues to support us and I feel incredibly blessed to be able to welcome you back to our Taproom. Here’s to the next 1500 brews!”
The limited edition, commemorative brew Milestone 1500 is a Mountain IPA. Blending West Coast bitterness and East Coast smoothness, Milestone 1500 is inspired by Head Brewer and Co-Founder Rob Rainey’s recipe for Quantock Brewery’s 500th brew. The original hop combination of Centennial, Citra, Columbus, Mosaic and Simcoe has been used with a different yeast strain to gives a fruitier complexity to the beer. Milestone 1500 has a smooth mouthfeel, citrus and pine flavours with notes of peach. 6.5% ABV. The 440ml can will be available to order online at www.quantockbrewery.co.uk or from the brewery shop.
