Tyne Bank launches Pacifica Pale after month and a half wait (VIDEO and GALLERY)

TYNE Bank Brewery Pacifica Pale is set to hit bars this weekend – almost a month and a half after it’s planned launch.

The beer, a four hop 4% light citrus flavoured pale ale had been due for the North East’s pubs – starting with Redhouse in Newcastle, where it was to be paired with a special edition lamb pie from Amble Butchers – back in January.

But after re-brewing the beer due to pre-launch aroma problems, it is finally arriving in time for Easter.

“Pacifica is a 4% hoppy ale,nicely balanced with Galaxy, Cascade, Summit and Pacifica hops,” said brewery managing director Julia Austin.

“Mark (McGarry, Tyne Bank’s head brewer) seems to have hit the nail right on the head if the first tasting in the brewery is anything to go by. ┬áBut we shall see what the feedback is.”
