Grene King has launched a new seasonal cask beer in partnership with London-based brewery Wolfpack.

Wolfpack Sesh IPA is a 3.8% golden ale brewed using Rye and Crystal malts, boasting toffee and spiced flavours alongside Pale and Carapils malts to add sweetness.

The sessionable beer is part of the ongoing distribution relationship between the Suffolk-based pub operator and brewer and Wolfpack, which was co-founded by international Rugby players Chris Wyles and Alistair Hargreaves in 2014.

Truly refreshing 

Hargreaves said: “We have been working with Greene King for a number of years and it’s brilliant to be able to create a bespoke cask beer that forms part of a wider limited-edition collection.

“Our Sesh IPA is a truly refreshing golden beer and ideal as we head into summer, with sporting occasions drawing in consumers looking to enjoy a lighter, sessionable pint with their pack members.”

Released as part of Greene King’s seasonal cask calendar, a portfolio of 13 limited-edition cask beers available at specific times throughout the year, Wolfpack Sesh IPA will be available to order in cask format throughout May and June direct from Greene King.

Greene King head brewer Jack Palmer said: “We were really excited to welcome Wolfpack to join our seasonal calendar with its first cask beer this year.

New and eye-catching 

“We understand that guests are wanting those lighter cask styles in colour and flavour as the weather starts to improve and we wanted to offer something new and eye-catching for guests to try with Wolfpack Sesh IPA.”

Last week, Greene King unveiled plans to shut down operations at its Bury St Edmunds brewery​ after 200 years and move production to a new custom-built state-of-the-art site as part of its sustainability goals.

The firm said it would be investing £40m into the project, which would “futureproof” the business for generations to come.
