St Austell Brewery are introducing their new cask beer brand – Anthem, a British pale ale (3.8% abv).
Their new golden new pale ale is made with 100% British ingredients, including Maris Otter barley grown in Cornwall and East Anglia. Four UK-grown hop varieties – Target, Olicana, Jester, and Harlequin, bring the beer’s fruit packed flavours to the fore. It’s the first new brand launched since Georgina Young took over the reins as our brewing director in 2020.
Speaking on the new launch, Georgina said: “We’re delighted to see Anthem joining the likes of Tribute, Proper Job, and korev as part of our fantastic beer portfolio. It’s a really sessionable beer, made with quality British ingredients and despite its lower abv, is absolutely jam packed full of fruity flavours.”
“Although we’re exploring launching the beer in bottles in the future, we’re proud to be launching Anthem exclusively as a cask beer first. The process of crafting a pint is a real team collaboration, from grain to glass and we work extremely closely with our network of trusted suppliers to provide us with the finest raw ingredients. We’ve handpicked an all-star British line-up of ingredients for Anthem. The hops are exciting English varieties which emulate the celebrated juicy hop characteristics associated with the US.”
Georgina further commented: “Nothing quite beats that pub-fresh pint of cask ale, which is why continuing to innovate with new beers like Anthem, and experiment with modern flavours, is so important to us.”
“Make sure you look out for it on the bar.”
