Scottish craft brewer BrewDog is releasing a new tongue-in-cheek beer called Barnard Castle Eye Test Hazy IPA, in response to claims that Downing Street adviser Dominic Cummings broke coronavirus lockdown restrictions in the UK.
A public vote confirmed the name of the new hazy IPA, inspired by Cummings’s claim that he undertook the 30-mile drive to tourist attraction Barnard Castle in County Durham to ‘test his eyesight.’ In doing so, Cummings has been accused of breaking the coronavirus lockdown restrictions put in place by the administration he advises.
Barnard Castle Eye Test is described by BrewDog as ‘the short-sighted beer for tall stories’. The drink itself is a New England, old school IPA, and is dry-hopped for a juicy hit with pineapple, mango and a hint of zesty lime at ABV 6%.
According to BrewDog, all profits made from the beer will go to funding its production of free sanitiser for the NHS & Health Care Charities.
12 x 330ml packs of the drink are now available for pre-ordering at a price of £16.95 per pack, and BrewDog claims that the drink will be available in the next two weeks.
