Black Sheep’s Bighorn returns
Black Sheep Brewery is tapping into US Presidential election fever with the return of its bold, Anglo-American IPA, Bighorn, for a ‘second term’ in pubs this September.
As Democrats and Republicans line up their candidates stateside, pub customers will be able to make Bighorn their choice for the first time since 2014.
Bighorn was one of Black Sheep’s first seasonal brews to be developed in its microbrewery and its success led to it being scaled up and transferred to the brewery’s main brewhouse for full UK distribution, when it was originally launched two years ago.
With an ABV of 4.5%, Bighorn is a full-flavoured Anglo-American IPA, brewed with a heady mix of English Challenger and American Summit hops.
Bighorn takes its name from a breed of sheep found in the Rocky Mountains, in America, so called because of its long horns.
Jo Theakston, Sales and Marketing Director at Black Sheep Brewery said:
“We are delighted to be offering Bighorn to the pub trade once again, following its successful launch two years ago. It was one of our first seasonal beers to be brewed in our microbrewery and one that we are very proud of, so much so that it was scaled up for full UK-wide distribution.
“Election fever is heating up in the States and the eyes of the world are on the Presidential race, so it is a timely release of Bighorn, which can be enjoyed by all – whether you are a Trump or Clinton supporter!”
