Called, not unsurprisingly, Platinum Jubilee Pale Ale, the new beer will be available in both 500 ml bottles and cask.
Brewery owner Martin James explained: “We have brewed a beer that is refreshing and distinctive and was created to mark the 70th anniversary of the reign of Queen Elizabeth II and we believe its appeal will meet a wide audience.
“We have selected a range of juicy hops from around the world, including Commonwealth countries, such as Moteuka from New Zealand.
“We also continue to support our local farmers and have used locally grown barley and wheat that has been malted 20 minutes away from the brewery by the Crisp Malting Group at Great Ryburgh.”
Brewery sales manager Danny Holdom added: “Platinum will be a welcome addition to our range. As we move into spring, it seemed the perfect time to launch a wonderfully light, refreshing beer bursting with juicy hops.
“And the great news is if you want to raise a second or third glass to the Queen, we have kept the ABV (alcohol by volume) sensible at 3.9%.”
Platinum Jubilee Pale Ale will be available in pubs, shops and at events, and can be home delivered.
