Brands as Beers

by Oct 22, 2021

For the past five years, the UK has seen a sharp growth in the number of breweries. In 2020 the number of breweries in the country went up by 216, with the total now standing at 3,018. 

This got us thinking, will this continue to grow to a point where established brands dip into the market to keep the thirsty country afloat? 

What would they look like? How would they taste? Who would buy them?

Well we have had a go at predicting the future, designing our own beers for various different companies who might even one day try creating their own.

Amazon Basics Brews Lager

Amazon Basics Lager is a light and refreshing beer. Brewed using prime ingredients, it has a shimmering golden colour and a smooth bitter flavour with hints of sweetness creeping through in the aftertaste. It’s light and easy going down and will have you coming back to it time and time again.

Available worldwide, this universally found lager is a staple of every session and can be found online or in stores for whenever you need it.

Pretty Green Live Forever PILSNER

The Live Forever Pilsner from Pretty Green is the perfect drink for the casual drinker. Designed to be enjoyed warm at a festival or gig, it is ideally served in a (recycled) plastic cup.

Apple iPA

There is nothing better than a fresh can of the Apple IPA on a summer day. It’s smooth and flavourful with fruity notes ticking all the right boxes. Be sure to enjoy it while it’s cold and fresh as the longer you leave it, more of the goodness starts to escape. Of course it’s nothing that a fresh can can’t fix so be sure to keep a couple of spares on hand.

Available in select Apple Genius Bars.

SPORTS DIRECT BROWN ALE

Brewed using efficient and low-cost methods, the Sports Direct Brown Ale leaves a bitter taste in the mouth – especially for Newcastle United supporters. Having bought out a number of smaller breweries, the Sports Direct Group currently produce a versatile range of beers that all look and taste similar. The Brown Ale is best served in Sports Direct’s bespoke range of unlicenced sports team pint glass – the one that your estranged uncle generously gifted to you at Christmas.

(Note: Look out for Flannels, our premium sister range of gins. Unaffordable prices and even we don’t know why!)
