Fans up and down the country will be cheering on the England team, helped along with a summer pale ale brewed by the team at Wadworth, the regional pub operator and family brewer based in Devizes.
The beer named, “Optimism” hopes to inject in football fans and ale drinkers a deep belief that the team can win. However if it all goes badly wrong, pub landlords can replace the pump clip with “Misplaced Optimism” and fans can still enjoy a pint whilst drowning their sorrows!
Available throughout the Wadworth pub estate and some national accounts and free trade, the ale is a dry golden ale with mild hints of blackcurrant, citrus and pine fruit brewed with a combination of British and American hops. At 4% abv it has a lingering satisfying bitterness making it an ideal accompaniment for the whole match including penalties!
Speaking about the ale, head brewer at Wadworth, Colin Oke said, “We will all be keenly wishing the England team to do well in the Euros, like any tournament they enter and we hope this beer will instil even more optimism in our drinkers for our great team to succeed. I’m sure with this almighty desire behind the team we won’t need to use the alternative pump clip any time soon”.
