Virgin Voyages has announced that they will serve up a signature craft beer, an English Pale Ale with a hint of red, to be sold throughout the Scarlet Lady and featured in its onboard tap room the Draught Haus. Before Sailors can enjoy the beer next year, Virgin Voyages is calling on them to name it. Followers can suggest their favorite names for the brew by commenting on their Instagram post (@VirginVoyages) featuring the can.
Featuring a malty body like a traditional EPA, but slightly more bitter and hoppy, with hints of grapes and fruit on the nose with toffee and caramel in the background, the new brew is a drinker’s beer with the approachability in its taste for the novice. The ale is finished with a little touch of roasted malt that gives it its signature red tint.
Charles Steadman, Senior Manager of Beverage Development for Virgin Voyages said:
We have created the perfect pale ale that is both thirst-quenching and refreshingly delicious, but of course, created with a Virgin twist, as we have given our pale beer a little kiss of scarlet red. And who better to partner with on this exciting endeavour than Wynwood Brewing Company, based in Scarlet Lady’s homeport of Miami.
Located on Deck 7, the Draught Haus is the perfect casual meet up spot on the ship to grab an expertly brewed beer with friends. This perfect chill-out space is filled with an eclectic mix of furniture, rustic detailing and a beer tap display set behind the bar.
The Draught Haus will have eight beers on tap, a wide range of bottled artisanal beers, shots, shot-cocktails and boilermakers. The bar will also offer a growler service, so Sailors can enjoy the expertly curated craft beers in any of the Scarlet Lady’s uniquely designed public spaces or in the comfort of their cabin.
