Sharp's Brewery Sea Fury : A Tempestuous Brew From Cornwall's Coast

Ahoy, beer enthusiasts! Today, we're embarking on a voyage to the rugged Cornish coast, where the team at Sharp's Brewery have crafted a tempestuous and flavoursome brew, known as Sea Fury. So grab your waterproofs and let's set sail into the stormy world of this exceptional beer.

Sharp's Brewery, located in Rock, Cornwall, has been making waves in the British beer scene since 1994. Their passion for quality and innovation has resulted in a range of popular brews, including the widely acclaimed Doom Bar. Sea Fury, one of their flagship beers, is no exception to their impressive lineup.

As the name suggests, Sea Fury is a beer with a wild side. Pouring a deep amber colour, this 5.0% ABV special bitter boasts a captivating visual presence. The aroma is a delightful blend of toffee, dried fruit, and a subtle hint of spicy hops, invoking images of a stormy Cornish seascape.

Taking your first sip, you'll be greeted by a rich malt backbone, accompanied by notes of caramel and biscuit. The hop bitterness follows, providing a perfect counterbalance to the malt's sweetness. The finish is smooth and lingering, leaving you yearning for more.

Despite its bold character, Sea Fury is surprisingly versatile when it comes to food pairings. It complements hearty dishes like steak and ale pie or a traditional Sunday roast, while also pairing well with sharp cheeses and crusty bread for a more laid-back snack.

In conclusion, Sharp's Sea Fury is a distinctive and memorable brew that captures the spirit of Cornwall's rugged coast. Its bold flavours and well-balanced profile make it a must-try for fans of British bitters and those seeking a taste of the wild Cornish seaside. So go ahead, embrace the tempest and raise a glass to Sea Fury.
