Comeragh Challenger Gluten Free Bitter

comeragh_big

Our summer seasonal since 2012, we are now delighted to announce that Comeragh Challenger has been certified as gluten free since 2015.

An English-style pale ale which is brewed using
the naturally occurring hard water of West
Waterford and hopped solely with Challenger
hops to produce a traditional bitter.

Traditionally, English bitters are made with the very hard water profile which occurs at Burton-on-Trent, the home of brewing in England. In West Waterford, the hard water profile means flavours of the English bitter style can be replicated. Coupled with this, the beer is hopped solely with Challenger hops, an English hop used in many traditional bitters. The malty profile and floral hops make for a delicate and understated ale, and at 3.8%, this is an easy-drinking beer that will be perfect for summer barbecue days!

What’s in a name? The name Comeragh Challenger  refers to the 160km route of the Sean Kelly Tour which takes place in the Comeragh mountain range each August, called the Comeragh Challenge.
