Frank Turner announces the launch of his own signature beer ‘Believe’
10 October 2012
In conjunction with Signature Brew, Frank Turner has created his brew to be a modern twist on the traditional wheat beer encompassing citrus and orange flavours to create a refreshing brew. Designed to accompany easy afternoons and long nights, this clear Witbier (Belgian Style Wheat Beer) has a crispness that will refresh and subtleties to engage the palate.
Work began on the recipe back in March of this year with Frank joining the Signature Brew team in an extensive tasting session. Having travelled the world playing shows, Frank’s knowledge of European and world beers was drawn into sharp focus by Lead Beer Expert, Tom Bott. The burgeoning wheat beer range on the continent proved to be of most interest, with their crisp taste and easy drinking style.
Frank Turner on the beer and his experience: “Being asked to design a beer was a new one for me - I don't know masses about beer, other than that I like drinking it a whole lot. In the end I learned a lot, had a fun evening getting hammered, and ended up with a beer with my name on the label, which is pretty much the pinnacle of any road-dog's ambitions. I'm very much looking forward to sinking a few with friends after a show.”
The first 330ml bottles will be available for pre-order from the 5th October at www.frankturnerbeer.com and on general release in bottle and on keg from the 15th October in selected stores and pubs nationwide.
