Butcombe Brewery launch new pale ale – On a boat no less


Butcombe Brewery launched a new permanent Matthew Pale Ale recently and to celebrate they took their loyal customers out on a replica of John Cabots ship, The Matthew. If this sound like a bad idea then me and you are on the same wavelength, Lots of drunk people on a ship on the water but i’m glad to report that this event went off without a hitch.

Cabot’s ship adorns the pumpclip of Butcombe’s new permanent ale and can be seen floating on the stormy sea of a frothy pint of the 3.8% ABV beer.

Guy Newell, managing director of Butcombe, said: “It was a great day out and our customers really enjoyed the experience of tasting our Matthew on board The Matthew.”

  1. Would you happen to know if they export to the U.S.? Because Matthew, would like to try a Matthew, preferably aboard the Matthew! Speaking of drunk people on boats, if you live in Kentucky, I think its mandatory to drink beer when you get on a boat. Or at least it seems that way when you go to the lake or river. That is why I DO NOT, swim there!

    1. I don’t think they export in quantity to the us Matthew but im sure there is a way to get it, there is always away.

      Personally i don’t do well on boats so maybe tha’ts why i find the whole idea a bit, weird.
