Are you looking for the perfect gift for ale lovers? This is a fantastic trio to showcase Cullercoats Brewery. As a partner to the RNLI, each beer draws inspiration from the coastal history of the North East.
Firstly, to kick off this ale gift box, find “Lovely Nelly”. The boat, wrecked off Whitley Sands on the stormy New Year’s Day of 1861 was successfully rescued by the Cullercoats Lifeboat. In fact, as the legend goes, the lifeboat could not launch due to the stormy conditions. Consequently, the Fisherwomen of Cullercoats pulled the lifeboat the 2 miles to Whitley Bay where it could be launched! Lovely Nelly is a superb full-bodied amber bronze session Beer. Always with a biscuit malt flavour, balanced with a smooth bitterness from the finest English Fuggles and Golding hops.
Next up, there’s “Rocket Brigade IPA”. A tribute to the Cullercoats volunteers who fired rockets with life saving equipment to boats in distress. Of course, a multi award winning all English, India Pale Ale. Truly pale, strong and bitter although deceptively easy drinking. An intense hoppy aroma complements the rich malty flavour of this excellent ale.
Finally, we have selected “Grace Darling Gold”. Often described as Victorian Britain’s greatest heroine, who risked her life to rescue nine survivors from the wrecked SS Forfarshire in 1838. To this day, the RNLI museum in Bamburgh celebrates the lighthouse keeper’s daughters incredible life. Accordingly, this blonde beer is refreshing, smooth and hoppy.
In conclusion, an excellent ale gift box, steeped in history.
