If you’re a fan of craft beer or just looking to impress your mates with a little off-the-cuff worldly beer knowledge, you need to get yourself along to Fourpure Brewing Co.’s Continental Collaboration Tour this June and July.

And if you don’t fancy venturing up to the deep dark depths of the North, the brewing squad are heading to London on 8th July.
Fourpure Brewing Co.’s Continental Collaboration Tour: The Lowdown
Fourpure Brewing Co. has already made a name for itself as one of the most innovative and exciting craft brewers in the UK right now (incase you don’t believe us – for starters it’s the The Society of Independent Brewer’s 2017 Most Innovative Brewery) and not content with that… the team there has launched a project working with its network of friends and partner breweries around the globe.
In its most exciting and challenging brewing project to date, the Bermondsey-based beer buffs have launched the company’s first Continental Collaboration, creating beers in partnership with six breweries each from a different major continent, including Africa, Asia, Australia, Europe, North America and South America.
The partner brewers include Devils Peak in South Africa, Kyoto Brewing in Japan, Two Birds Brewing in Australia, Brasserie de la Senne in Belgium, Bear Republic Brewing Co. in California, USA, and Sunset Brewery in Brazil.

The beers include:
Asia | Kyoto Brewing Co | Temple Satsuma & Seaweed Gose | 4.0% ABV – Brewed with Konbu seaweed, Satsuma peel, flaked rice and sea salt. Temple is a very light and dry sour beer with prominent salt, citrus character and subtle umami.
Africa | Devil’s Peak Brewing Company | Coastline Gooseberry & Vanilla Dry-Hopped Sour | 6.0% ABV – Gooseberry, lactose and fresh vanilla pods create a beer that is lightly sour with sweet notes from the vanilla, fruity tartness from the gooseberry, and hoppy notes from plentiful amounts of Citra hop.

Europe | Brasserie De La Senne | Homage Dry Hopped Farmhouse Saison | 5.5% ABV – Earthy and spicy hops, a spicy yeast character and is dry-hopped with Hallertau Blanc from Germany for interesting passionfruit and grape overtones. Dry and very refreshing.

North America | Bear Republic Brewing Company | Nor Cal lPA | 6.5% ABV – Big, bold American in your face IPA. The best of the best of one of Fourpure’s favourite styles.
