Fancy A Pint, Chris? 

Arkell's latest ginger-inspired ale is on its way to Mr Evans...
 
Arkell's Brewery's latest seasonal ale is very much ginger inspired.
 
Head brewer Alex Arkell has decided to have some fun at his own expense by naming his latest brew - A Tinge of Ginge!
 
“We’ve added some natural ginger extract to the brew, a pale ale, which balances very nicely with the sweetness of the malt. It’s refreshing, light and perfect for this time of year,” Alex says.

“I’m used to a bit of gentle teasing about the colour of my hair, but I don’t mind.”
 
In fact Alex is in good company. Prince Harry is ginger-haired, so are Chris Evans and Ed Sheeran, and it hasn’t held them back.
 
Chris Evans, the Radio 2 DJ, even owns his own pub in Surrey, so Alex will be sending a few pints along to see what he thinks.

“Brewing great beer can be a serious business, but we make it fun, trying out new flavours and tastes, and deciding which ones our customers will enjoy most,” said Alex.
 
“When I was training to become a brewer I travelled to Europe and the United States which is where I came across the idea for carefully marrying ginger with malt to give a light refreshing beer. But you don’t have to don a red wig to drink it.”
 
Available Now
 
Arkell’s A Tinge of Ginge beer is available in cask in selected Arkell’s pubs from April 2015, and for order locally from Arkell’s Brewery in Kingsdown.
