A new look for Barry Island IPA, tidy!
We've had a very busy year here at Brains! A new brewery, brand new beers, exciting new partnerships and it's not over yet because we've made sure we've left enough time to give our Barry Island IPA the love it deserves!
Inspired by the American IPA revolution but firmly rooted on the sun-kissed beaches of South Wales, we wanted our new style of Barry Island IPA to capture the true spirit of Barry Island by highlighting some of its features on the new pump clip face. Just like us, we're sure any Welsh family has had some amazing times in Barry Island, and our wavy, colourful new style of the pump clip is looking to bring back all those coast side memories at the funfair.
But while evolution is important, we wanted to make sure that the taste remained untouched, because if it's not broke - don't fix it! Barry Island IPA is brewed with a trio of hops from the US and bursts with citrus aromas that create unique, smooth malt taste, followed by a vigorous bitter finish and a tidy clout of citrus and berry hop flavours.
And it's not just the pump clip revamp that's been occurring. We've also made sure to put the same design on our cans, so you'll be able to take home the spirit of Brains and Barry Island from your shopping trip to the supermarkets!
We're so happy with the new pump clips and cannot wait for you to see them in our pubs and in supermarkets!
We've also added a Barry Island IPA sticker to Instagram! Just search for "Brains Brewery" when adding your sticker to add some Barry Island IPA magic to your next Instagram story!
But we're not done yet... this is just the beginning of some really exciting changes that are happening here at the brewery so stay tuned for some huge news coming soon!
