Leading drinks importer Morgenrot has further increased its selection of Riojan masterpieces from the Cervecera Artesana brewery with the addition of the Palax ‘Session’ IPA.
The new arrival, which is made with Mosaic, Citra, Amarillo, Sorachi Ace and Cascade hops as well as Pale, Pilsner and other malts, is available immediately on draught in 30ltr key-kegs and 33cl bottles, and joins the Riojan brewery’s Palax Artesan Lager and Ceriux grape and grain beers in Morgenrot’s growing and much-revered beer portfolio.
Spanish food continues to appeal to the UK’s discerning foodies but it’s also the country’s drinks selection which is creating waves in the UK with its wine, sherry, vermouth and now craft beer attracting the eyes of consumers.
Palax ‘Session’ IPA (3.9% abv) – An easy drinking, light strength IPA with a pale golden colour. It has Palax’s typically malt inclined style and a medium dose of hops wherein fruity notes are discernible – stone ones on the nose, citrus on the palate. An astringent bitterness gives a clean, short finish.
Morgenrot’s Commercial Director John Critchley commented: “The appeal of quality Spanish food continues to grow in the UK but it’s also the country’s drinks selection which is creating waves in the UK with its wine, sherry, vermouth and now craft beer attracting more and more consumers. The beers from the Cervecera Artesana brewery in Rioja form an integral part of our Spanish offering so we’re delighted to extend the range with the Palax ‘Session’ IPA. It’s a key trend beer style at present and is full of those pleasant fruity aromas and hoppy notes with a crisp, highly-refreshing finish.”
The brainchild of Javier Palacios, who had a life-long passion for beer while making wine in Spain’s most famous wine region, Cervecera Artesana is based 800 metres above sea level and boasts one of the most incredible brewery vistas in the world – the famous gorge – Peñas de Iregua.
Set up in 2012, the brewery is part of the Palacios Vinoteca Group, which produces the Trus and Nivei wines available in Mitchells & Butlers’ All Bar One sites, and is located alongside the group’s Nivarius winery in the region of Nalda, 17km from Logrono.
The brewery combines the finest quality raw ingredients with cutting-edge technology and innovation to produce unique beers that ensure even the most discerning beer connoisseurs are amazed. The best malts and hops are selected from the most renowned suppliers and water comes from a spring in the upper Iregua river basin in a natural, environmentally-rich area surrounded by beech and oak trees. The resulting craft beers are rich in nuances and personality.
Established in 1970, Morgenrot is Manchester’s oldest independent drinks importer supplying an ever-growing, sublime selection of wines, beers, ciders and spirits nationally including Krombacher, Quilmes, Tribaut, Loxarel, Supper Club and Vallemajor to name a few.
