Introducing ‘Chapel Rock’, our NEW box-fresh springtime pale ale

Ready to put the endless winter of 2019/2020 behind you? Us too! And we have just the thing; a session pale ale specially created for this upbeat time of year.

Dry-hopped for intensity and bursting with fruit, Chapel Rock is the newest edition to the Skinner’s portfolio – we’re so proud of it we named it after a really big rock!

The struggle is real 

Spring sometimes leaves us beer-lovers in limbo; we don’t require the comfort blanket of a winter ale anymore, but we’re not quite ready to embrace the heady lightness of a Lushingtons or a Sennen just yet.

This is precisely why Steve dreamed up Chapel Rock, a seasonal ale for March through to May, which rejuvenates tired winter taste buds and hints of warmer times ahead.

What’s the secret?

After many experiments, we finally settled on a combination of Northdown, Citra, Jester, Willamette and Belma hops to craft our brand-new creation.

By dry hopping during the fermentation stage we’ve dialled up the hop intensity, giving this limited-edition brew irresistible depth and complexity in both aroma and flavour, balanced with crisp fruit and tropical notes for seasonal refreshment.

And what’s all this about a really big rock?

Nestled in the middle of Perranporth beach is Chapel Rock; standing fifty feet high and adorned with the flag of St Piran, it’s an iconic feature of the Cornish coast and one us beach-loving brewers have spent many an hour in the company of!

With flora and fauna returning to our favourite coastal haunts, and all the possibilities of a Cornish summer stretching out ahead of us, Chapel Rock is our homage to spring rejuvenation and the promise of things to come.
