Chapel Down’s brewery arm enters the on-trade with new brew

Published:  28 June, 2018

Curious Brewery, owned by English winemaker Chapel Down, has added a second edition to its Curiouser & Curiouser portfolio – the first of its brews that will be available in the on-trade.

The limited edition 7.3% abv Curiouser & Curiouser: Chapter 2 beer, available now across selected Fullers and Barworks venues, is made in collaboration with London-based brewery Brew By Numbers.

Produced with a winemaker’s twist ion line with the brand’s ethos, it is a delicately refined elderflower saison made to recreate several of the modern classic English grape varietal, Bacchus, which Chapel Down has developed a strong reputation with in its wines and sparkling wines.

For anyone who thought of themselves as only a wine-drinker, Chapel Down said it encouragde them to “give this a try and to explore the overlap between our premium beers and the wines they love”.

“At the heart of what we do is an unquenchable thirst to learn and discover, so we try to be fearless in breaking convention and challenging the status quo in our search for great taste. Curiouser & Curiouser epitomises this, and the inspiration we take from craft is coupled with the care that winemakers bring to wine,” said Curious Brewery MD Gareth Bath.

In homage to its winemaking influence, Chapter 2 is bottled in a 75cl wine bottle (rrp: £8), with a cream label and seal with a silver cap in Brew by Numbers signature style.
