Sambrook’s, South London’s newest brewery situated in Wandsworth, has launched a bottle-conditioned variety of its popular Wandle Ale available to the on-trade.
Described as ‘golden with a distinctive, dry, hoppy finish,’ Wandle Ale is 4% ABV and made with ingredients sourced as locally to the brewery as possible, including Maris Otter malt from Warminster Maltings, and a combination of Fuggles and Goldings whole leaf hops with a more modern Boadicea hedgerow variety.
Stephen Brady of The Betjeman Arms at St Pancras International Station who currently stocks the ale, said Wandle’s cask variety had always proven to be a top-seller. “The fact that it’s brewed in London is its USP, and gives it appeal both to our local regulars and the many travellers from the UK and abroad who come in here for a drink or two,” he said. “The feedback from our customers is overwhelmingly positive.”
Sambrook’s brewery, which was founded by Duncan Sambrook and David Welsh (pictured), former owner of Ringwood Brewery, currently supplies 30 pubs within Greater London with stockists including Tom Conran’s The Cow in Westbourne Park and The Westbridge in Battersea.
