Three Bristol breweries join forces for special collaboration beer

By Martin Booth, Friday Jun 29, 2018

An ode to Ribena could see Bristol crowned as the best city for beer in the UK.

Berry Lush is a blackcurrant wietbeer made in a three-way collaboration by Bristol breweries Left Handed Giant, Lost & Grounded and Moor.

The beer is on tap at Small Bar on King Street from Friday alongside collaboration brews from Liverpool, Leeds, London and Manchester.

It’s part of the City Clash from Manchester Beer Week, which hopes to end the debate once and for all over what is England’s best beer city.

Is that really the car park of the Bristol Hotel representing Bristol?

Lost & Grounded‘s Annie Clements came up with the idea for Bristol’s beer as a nod to Ribena being invented in Long Ashton.

Annie describes the 4% Berry Lush as “tart and refreshing”, with proceeds from every keg and every bottle sold are going to FoodCycle Bristol.

It was brewed at Lost & Grounded in St Anne’s with pils malt, wheat malt, flaked wheat and oats that were combined with 300kg of blackcurrant puree – producing a vivid red colour and pink foam.

“With our only brief being ‘the taste of Bristol’, we wanted to brew something that represents the spirit of Bristol,” Annie told Bristol24/7.

“We think the modern city of Bristol is effervescent, bright and bubbly, so we wanted to try to capture that essence with this Berry Lush beer.”
