With the craft ale market becoming increasingly important, St. Peter’s Brewery in Suffolk has launched a new 330ml ‘Crafted Range’ which includes its first ever cider and a 7% ABV Black IPA.

Taking its unique and iconic oval bottle, St Peter's Brewery has created a smaller 330ml version to showcase its new and existing products.

The brand new 4.6% St. Peter’s Cider is a refreshing, dry and crisp cider, pale straw in colour carrying a fresh uplifted apple aroma and a slight fizz on the tongue. The St. Peter’s Black IPA is a 7% crafted IPA that's black in colour and heavily hopped as a traditional IPA with a sweeter flavour belying the higher levels of bitterness. It offers a hint of raisins, sultanas, sloes and damsons and has an aroma of dark chocolate with vanilla notes. Steve Groves, Head Brewer at St Peter's says this is ‘the Rioja of Black IPA’s’.

“There is a growing interest in real cider and we felt the time was right for us to bring something completely new to the market,” explains Steve Magnall, CEO at St Peter's Brewery. “We launched our first batch in March and completely sold out! The response has been phenomenal.

“Our new Black IPA continues our 20-year-old tradition of making the highest quality real ales, while the new bottle size will help us compete in the now highly competitive crafted ale sector,” adds Steve.

Black IPA and Crafted Cider are both available and local outlets.

[Notes To Editors]
St. Peter’s Brewery is based at St. Peter South Elmham, near Bungay in Suffolk. The brewery itself was built in 1996 and is housed in an attractive range of traditional former agricultural buildings adjacent to St. Peter’s Hall.
Siting the brewery at St. Peter’s was ideal because of the excellent water quality from its own deep bore-hole. Locally malted barley is used, together with Kentish hops, to produce a range of classical English cask-conditioned ales and superb bottled beers.
St Peter's brews ‘traditional’ beers (bitters, mild etc.), as well as some more unusual beers such as honey porter and fruit beer.
