New Product Alert - Sadler’s Drop Forge (ABV 5.3%)
We're proud to announce the release of Sadler's Drop Forge - our new Premium Craft Lager.
Brewed like an ale but served like a lager, at 5.3% it's slightly stronger than other Lagers in the Sadler's range.
During the brewing process the yeast is nurtured and activated slowly to be given the optimum time and temperature to get the most out of it. These processes allows the taste of the malts and the hops come through, creating a complex flavour profile we’re really proud to put our name to.
How Does it Taste?
Sadler's Drop Forge is a crisp refreshing craft lager that balances the soft smooth bitterness of British hops with the uplifting pine and citrus notes of American Cascade.
Where Did The Name Come From?
Walter Kimber, the Maternal Grandfather of 6th Generation Brewer Chris Sadler was the proud owner of ' Kimber Drop Forge' in Cradley Heath. Drop Forging was renowned as one of the hottest and most strenuous jobs in the Black Country. Drop Forge workers often consumed vast amounts of beer throughout the day to stay hydrated.
Once we had developed our craft lager we could think of no better name than Drop Forge to celebrate our industrial heritage and the hard working people who live and work here in the Black Country.
We are so excited to launch Sadler's Drop Forge Premium Lager and we can't wait for you to try it - Currently available on draught at our venues, so why not pop in and try it for yourself?
