Binary Botanical Ale 250ml
Fancy a drink? Yes or no? That’s a binary question, relatively straightforward. What would you like to drink? Now that’s a bit more complicated, with a plethora of different answers. Beer? Wine? Cider? Gin? Well, the Good Living Brew Company have thrown another option into the mix: Binary Botanical Ale. But rather than complicating things, they might have just made things deliciously simple.
While most beers are brewed using hop cones, Binary Botanical Ale is infused for five days with the leaves that sprout off organic Sovereign and First Gold hop bines – hence the name. Hop bines can grow up to 3-6 metres each season, driven by these powerhouse little leaves. And while hops impart a bitterness that isn’t for everyone, hop bine leaves add a tangy flavour that’s just to die for. But how to describe it? Binary Botanical Ale combines the tropical fruit hit of an IPA with the refreshment of an ice-cold cider, the tangy gooseberry and crunchy green pepper notes of a crisp Sauvignon Blanc, the soft effervescence and peachy flavours of a glass of Prosecco, and finally something verdant and herbal that’s reminiscent of a trusty gin and tonic. You don’t need a telescope to see that this is a binary star.
Based on the outskirts of the South Downs National Park, the lovely sciencey folk at the Good Living Brew Company were tired of not being able to find a drink of moderate alcohol of around 4% that wasn’t either bland, bitter or sweet. So they set out to create something new. And like the binary number system that drives our technology, it feels like real progress. Wonderfully inclusive, Binary Botanical Ale is relatively low in alcohol and calories, vegan-friendly and has a fresh, tangy and aromatic profile that will appeal to beer, wine and cider fans alike. Drink from a stemmed glass, or mix with a slice of cucumber, a sprig of rosemary and dash of sugar syrup to produce a refreshing alternative to a G&T.
