Super Special Seasonals 

Bongo 2022 Strawberry Summer Beer - 5% ABV

BONGO is the ultimate summer chilled sipper - reduxed in strawbs for 2022. Our lean, clean and super-fresh strawberry wheat beer. Bags of berry on the nose, it slides down as sweet and cool as a daiquiri, with a big red fruit twang and more-ish finish. We gave it a punchy 5% ABV kick, just to make it fly in July (and August, and September). Best paired with swimming trunks. Hops: Magnum, Cascade.

 

US-Style Bangers  

Bongo Tropic IPA - 5% ABV

Champion Big Session IPA - 4.9% ABV

Champion is our fresh, gold-standard 'big session' IPA.
