This week we are proud to feature this unique brew to our beer offerings at Naked Fisherman.
Formidable IPA, 7.5% ABV
A traditional India Pale Ale. A style originally brewed before refrigeration
and pasteurization using large amounts of hops (a natural preservative)
which could be shipped in the holds of ships to British Army garrisons
around the Empire. It is a very complex beer, balancing malt, alcohol and
citric hops wonderfully. It is named after Admiral Rodney’s flagship the HMS
Formidable, which sailed from Saint Lucia to defeat the French Armada at the
battle of The Saints.
Please come and give it a try…..
