Atlantic Crossing Rudgate Hogshead

York’s Rudgate Brewery has teamed up with Denver-based Hogshead Brewery to create Atlantic Crossing Best Bitter.

The two breweries planned their collaboration after meeting at the Craft Brewers Conference in the Colorado city in 2013. Atlantic Crossing will launch next week at this year’s conference, in bottles and draft.

The 5% ABV beer is described as a ‘resinous best bitter with toasted, caramel malt and earthy English yeast’.

“We’re like-minded when it comes to producing quality beers – and felt that a collaboration ale would be a fantastic way to combine our talents and fuse our brewing styles” said Rudgate MD Craig Lee.
