Nelson Brewery Produces Apple Ale


Nelson Brewery has used Kentish Bramley apples in its newest offering – an ale called Core Commander.

The apples, from Fourayes Farm, were blended with beer at the brewery’s Chatham’s Historic Dockyard facilities in the UK, the Morning Advertiser reports.

Speaking to the newspaper, Nelson Brewery owner Piers MacDonald said: “The challenge, initially, was to see how the combination would work. This type of Bramley-based ale has not been tried before, but we’re pleased with the results.”

Phil Acock, managing director at Fourayes Farm, said that creating a Bramley ale was a “natural progression” for the fruit, as it has already long had success in desserts, juices and ciders.

The Nelson Brewery produces a number of cask ales, including Rochester Bitter, Pieces of Eight, Loose Cannon and Trafalgar Bitter, which can all be found in pubs across the UK.

It also produces bottled beers, branded clothing and beer gift sets.
