FreshMex have teamed up with award-winning North East microbrewery Brew Toon to launch a FreshMex Lime Lager, an exciting new craft beer to pair with our award-winning food.
Robbie Moult, Director, explained the thinking behind the new product: “Ever since we launched our street food across the North-East at events such as the Banchory Beer Festival or at our FreshMex food residency in the Adams sports bar, we’ve always known our food goes hand-in-hand with a beer – literally.
We wanted to create a beer that matches our need for fresh flavour, so collaborated with the brilliant team in Peterhead at Brew Toon to make a light tasting beer that is still 4.8% ABV. It pairs incredibly well with our menu, but is also great to drink on its own.”
Cammy Bowden, Director of Brew Toon, added: “We’ve spent the past 9 months developing the Lime Lager with FreshMex – doing multiple test batches to get the taste spot on and we are very happy with the end result. It’s brewed with a variety of malts and fresh ingredients – including fresh lime, and left to condition until the perfect moment to ensure a smooth head and soft, refreshing finish with citrusy undertones. We’ve had great feedback on the Lime Lager so far, and are excited for the partnership ahead with FreshMex.”
Brew Toon were winners of Best Brewed product at the 2019 North East Scotland Food & Drink Awards and have no less than 7 beers shortlisted for this years Scottish Beer Awards being held on the 19th of September at the Edinburgh Corn Exchange.
The Lime Lager is available on draught from FreshMex at the Adams sports bar, FreshMex Schoolhill, Brew Toon’s own bar in Peterhead as well as a number of local bar venues across Aberdeen & Aberdeenshire.
The craft lager is also sold in 330ml with an eye catching design to takeaway from all venues, online via Brew Toon’s beer shop, on Deliveroo & in several North East bottle shops & delis – including the Hop Shop at Westhill Service Station & JK Fine Foods in Aberdeen city centre.
