Edwin Fox is the second oldest surviving merchant ship in the world & is currently in dry dock in Picton. Using English grown Maris Otter malt, and original English IPA yeast. The hops are a mixture. East Kent Goldings, as the original IPA’s used. “Epic” hops, a new English variety grown by hop farmer Chris Nicholas (another relation of Luke’s?), and Cascade hops which were bred from Fuggles. Beautiful.
With these ingredients, you get a true East India Pale Ale, with its rich malt character, the earthy herbal character from the EKG’s and Epic hops, and the highlights of the citrus notes of the Cascade hops, which really makes this beer pop. From the sale of each bottle we will be making a donation to contribute to the preservation of the Edwin Fox and the Maritime Museum.
