Rebel Brewing, Penryn Pale Ale

Penryn Pale Ale is part of Rebel's core range; a stable of accomplished, fairly traditional British beer styles inspired by their rugged, celtic surroundings.

“Nothing forms you and your character like being pounded by the waves. I couldn’t now picture a life without the sea next to me. It provides me with a lot of creativity that goes in to making beer” Guillermo Alvarez, Founder, The Rebel Crewing Co.

You know that saying about a picture telling a thousand words? Well, when we saw this beautiful little video by the talented folks at HUCK magazine, we knew we wouldn’t need to add much more to The Rebel Brewing Co. story.

Guillermo had been working at St Austell Brewery when he heard that a young whipper-snapper straight out of Exeter University called Rob Lowe was starting a brewery in Penryn, Cornwall. That was in 2010.

Fast forward four years and the chaps at Rebel have now firmly established themselves in this beautiful little corner of South West England, following hot in the heals of brewing start-ups like Harbour Brewing and more established names like St Austell, Skinners and Sharps. The trick will now be to get their beers in the hands of discerning drinkers further afield, starting with you lucky bunch this week.

It pours a deep blood red orange colour and throws out as much bread and toffee malt as grass and herbal aromas. Without even tasting it, it's clear this a quintessentially British pale ale. Take a sip... NO... take a gulp and after being astonished by the crispness of the mouthfeel expect to get some sweet apple and pear juice followed by a cutting citrus bitterness that makes you crave more. Repeat until it's all gone.

“We’ve set up this brewery with growth in mind” explains Guillermo. With more experimental beers like the stunning Mexico-cocoa (a devilishly delicious chocolate vanilla stout) and Henri (a dark Belgian spiced wheat beer) complimenting beers like this in the core range, a bit more brewing capacity will come in handy over the next couple of years.
