Camden Town Brewery’s end of year beer series aims to push the boundaries of what a lager can be. Back for its eighth year, Beer 2020 Barrel Aged Imperial Pilsner – just like the year it’s named after – is unlike any other. Barrel aged for eight months to create an elegant lager with white wine-like characteristics, it’s the perfect way to toast the end of a year that we’ll be glad to see the back of.
The Beer 2020 Imperial Pilsner makes a sophisticated centrepiece to any dining table. Perfect for any occasion you’d usually serve a cocktail or glass of fizz, this aperitif-like lager makes a special treat at Christmas parties, or for gifting to beer-lovers.
What makes Beer 2020 unlike any other? This year, Camden have added special enzymes during the brewing process for a more ‘wine’ like flavour profile.
Aged for eight months in both white wine and young Armagnac brandy barrels, Beer 2020 is brewed with Camden’s house pilsner malt and Hallertau Tradition hops to get the same clean and fresh taste of its flagship Hells Lager, and Hallertau Blanc hops for grape and gooseberry notes that compliment the flavours from the Pinot Blanc, Sauvignon Blanc and Chardonnay barrels.
Sophisticated in both taste and style, Beer 2020 is packaged in a gold screen-printed glass bottle featuring a jazz inspired design by Camden’s Seasonal Illustrator Gaurab Thakali, perfect for gifting.
Available nationwide in Waitrose stores across the country, Beer 2020 has an ABV of 10% and is available in 500ml bottles for £7.50.
