Black Sheep Brewery reintroduces special beer to mark US election

24th August 2016

Yorkshire's Black Sheep Brewery is reintroducing its Anglo-American IPA Big Horn in order to mark the US Presidential election.

Available on draught throughout September, Big Horn – taking its name from the native North American breed of sheep, found in the Rocky Mountains - was an early brew on Black Sheep's state-of-the-art microbrewery at their Masham HQ before being produced in the main brewhouse. 

Packing a blend of American ‘Summit’ and English ‘Challenger’ hops and with an ABV of 4.5%, Big Horn is described as a "full-bodied ale with fresh floral and citrus notes on the nose. Initial sweetness is followed by a complex fruitiness and a dry finish."

Jo Theakston, Sales and Marketing Director at Black Sheep Brewery, said: “We are chuffed to be offering Big Horn to customers once again, following its successful launch two years ago. It was one of our first seasonal beers to be brewed in our microbrewery and one that we are very proud of, so much so that it was scaled up for full UK-wide distribution.

“Election fever is heating up in the States and the eyes of the world are on the Presidential race, so it is a timely release of Big Horn, which can be enjoyed by all – whether you are a Trump or Clinton supporter!”
