Cunard has partnered with award-winning microbrewery, Dark Revolution, to create a trio of craft beers now available exclusively the cruise line’s cruise ships – Queen Mary 2, Queen Elizabeth and Queen Victoria. The craft collection is the latest addition to the cruise lines custom beverage selection onboard and includes a ‘Black’ Stout, a ‘Red’ IPA, and a ‘Gold’ Pilsner.
“Dark Revolution is known for their outstanding quality, balance and finish and we are very excited to partner with the brewery in creating these exclusive blends, adding to Cunard’s exceptional selection of beverages onboard,” said Josh Leibowitz, SVP Cunard North America.
Cunard Black is a handcrafted Biscotti Breakfast Stout, inspired by Cunard’s legacy of world navigation with flavours from around the globe. The beer balances flavours of oats and dark roasted British malts with Sumatran coffee, Spanish almonds and Madagascan vanilla to create a stout beer with a touch of sweetness.
Cunard Red is a handcrafted IPA with a gentle nod to Cunard’s transatlantic crossings, combining American hops and British malts for fruity and citrus flavours and aromas. In contract, the Cunard Gold is a classic handcrafted Pilsner, with fragrant hops and British malts combining for a German-style Pilsner.
The new craft beers are available on tap, in 12-oz cans and as a Tasting Flight in the Golden Lion Pub onboard, joining Cunard’s collection of select beverages including the 3 Queens Gin, Cunard Private Label and Cunard Private Reserve wines.
