New Shoots

American-style Pale – 4.7%

A celebration of spring, New Shoots is a hop-forward pale ale. UK-grown versions of classic American West Coast hops, with the addition of freshly foraged conifer tips, makes for a refreshing ale with punchy citrus and pine flavours.



New Shoots is named after its not-so-secret ingredient; the fresh tips from larch, spruce and pine trees, gathered in the spring and added to the beer.

Young conifer tips give fresh grassy and citrus notes (as well as light piney, resinous flavours), and these align beautifully with the Chinook and Cascade hops. Wonderfully quaffable in the sunshine.

    Didn’t know what to expect with the pine but surprised to find it very enjoyable, the perfect balance. Lovely and refreshing. A big hit!
