Some things in life are meant to be paired, like books and beer for example. So what better way to celebrate the release of our new Global Beer Tour book than by creating our very own global beer? We’re proud to have teamed up with two of the trendiest breweries around, Northern Monk Brew Co in the UK and Fieldwork Brewing Co in the US, to produce a limited-edition IPA called Travel Notes.

Our limited-edition IPA: Travel Notes Five continents. Five ingredients. One international IPA.

This week, our fruity and floral international IPA will be arriving in tap rooms and selected stores across the UK. Featuring ingredients from five continents, including mangoes from Africa, açaí berries from South America, malted barley and wheat from Europe and hops from North America and Oceania, we hope each sips transports you to a different corner of the globe.

Here’s a peek behind the scenes at how it all came together.
