When Constable Simon Crowcroft visits New Jersey this week, as part of the 350th anniversary celebrations, he will take with him a special taste of ‘old’ Jersey.
Special presentation bottles of Liberation Ale produced to mark the 140th birthday of Jersey’s only brewery will be given to dignitaries in New Jersey by the Constable of St Helier.
Liberation Group Chief Executive Mark Crowther said: “We are very proud to be sending some of our specially brewed 140th Anniversary Ale to New Jersey. The craft beer movement is enjoying huge growth and popularity in the United States and we think they’ll appreciate a beer that has such a strong heritage from the other side of the Pond.”
“Constable Simon Crowcroft said: “This visit is extremely important from an economic, cultural and heritage point of view. I am very pleased to be taking this beer with me because it will demonstrate to our American cousins how much we value our traditions of producing fine quality products. I look forward to sharing a glass with the people we will be meeting”.
Liberation 140 Ale was produced in 2011 as a limited edition to celebrate the 140th birthday of Liberation Brewery, formerly Ann Street Brewery. Only 2011 bottles were produced using the finest quality British malts including Maris Otter, Centennial, Amarillo and Motueka hops to provide the aroma which is robust, fruity and rich. At 7% it is a strong dark IPA which drinks easily but is not easily forgotten.
