Purity Brewing Company re-launches Saddle Black

Purity Brewing Company’s cycling inspired seasonal beer, Saddle Black, is now available again in cask. Re-launched for the winter again at Birmingham’s Pure Bar and Kitchen, this popular beer will be available until April, 2015.

The Warwickshire based brewery have always been big suppoters of cycling and as well as releasing the beer have also developed a range of cycling jerseys to celebrate their commitment to the cycling community.

Purity’s Head Brewer and keen cyclist, Flo Vialan, created the beer following discussions with MD and mountain bike fanatic, Paul Halsey, about dedicating a drink to the British cycling community.

The full flavoured, gnarly black beer uses chinook and cascade hops to give a full smoky and citrus aroma, combining a mix of black pepper, deep fruits, orange

and spices. Roasted malts provide a taste of chocolate and espresso, while smoked malts ensure a well-rounded finish for a full-bodied taste experience.

Saddle Black comes in seasonal cask at 5.1% and bottled year round at a full bodied 7%.

The drinks and cycling jerseys are now available online and at the brewery shop in Great Alne, a popular cycling location and where the brewery proudly displays its branded Pashley Bike.

MD Paul Halsey comments: “As a keen cyclist, I wanted to create a beer dedicated to the British cycling community and as a celebration of the craft that goes into making both beer and bicycles. Brooks England and Pashley Cycles are long established West Midland companies at the forefront of their trade and we saw a synergy between their passion and craftsmanship and our values.”

Saddle Black is priced from £1.90 per bottle / £20.20 per pack of twelve.
