Cullercoats Brewery Shuggy Boat Blonde sets sail after 10 day delay

CULLERCOATS Brewery has seen its latest brew, Shuggy Boat Blonde, finally set sail from the Redhouse after a 10 day delay.

The beer, a 3.8% blonde brewed using Fawcett and Sons pale and light crystal malts, with British grown Bramling Cross and Cascade hops, saw it’s launch postponed due to a leaking fermenter at the Wallsend-based firm.

But with fair winds and following seas it is now making it’s way into the North East’s pubs – and even setting course for the Newcastle Beer Festival.

“Every landlord I’ve ever spoke to has said to me, ‘Bill, brew a blonde, and brew one at about 3.8% ABV,” said brewery owner Bill Scantlebury. “I’m one to follow advice, so I decided that I would be launching a blonde.

“It’s got a good malty flavour, and it’s very fruity.  It should make a very refreshing summery beer.”
