Hawkshead Solar Sour 3.3% 30L (Keg-Star)

Hawkshead Solar Sour 3.3% 30L (Keg-Star)


Based in the heart of the English Lake District, brewers of bold, innovative beers since 2002, our beer range is eclectic and includes thirst quenching session beers, big hopped pale ales, deep dark stouts and sours. With a range of core beers, available in Cask, Keg, Bottle and Can.

At Hawkshead Brewery we make the sort of beer we like to drink - distinctive, full of flavour, handmade, and perfectly crafted.

We are small enough to know most of our customers, not to care about the mass market, be able to brew lots of different beers, experiment and innovate. We are big enough to employ a team of five brewers, make around 140 barrels (23,000 litres) of beer a week, deliver direct throughout The North, and our Tap at our Staveley site is open every day.

The brewery has always been a fan of sours (with several being included on the beer list for our spring festival) but it took three rare celestial events, a supermoon, solar eclipse and spring equinox, before we brewed one.

Aptly named Solar Sour, the latest beer to be added to our limited edition range, was brewed on Friday 20th March and is a take on the classic German Berliner Weisse.

True to style at just 3.3% ABV and very pale in colour Solar Sour is a refreshingly tart cloudy wheat beer with a lemony citric fruit sharpness. The intriguing sourness is a distinguishing feature of Berliner Weisse and is created by fermenting the beer with our house yeast in the presence of lactic acid bacteria. Cold conditioned, carbonated and served from keg Solar Sour is a superb beer for a hot summer’s day.
