An East Anglian brewer is hoping to score a winner after teaming up with world breweries to create a beer to celebrate the FIFA World Cup.
Southwold-based Adnams has collaborated with Japan’s Baird, Brazil’s Bodebrown, South Africa’s Devil’s Peak and Mexico’s Prima to create Bicycle Kick Kolsch.
The ingredients of the light-golden beer include the national flower of host nation Russia, chamomile, which is combined with honey, caramel and biscuit malt as well as lemongrass to represent the playing turf.
Fergus Fitzgerald, head brewer at Adnams, said: “We are so excited to be a part of this international collaboration of beers.
“Football itself brings nations together to celebrate people’s love of the sport, so it is great to be adding another aspect of international enjoyment with a beer spectators from across the globe can enjoy.”
The world cup begins on June 14 in Moscow.
