Alongside the beer, a dedicated website promises to take beer fans to a tropical paradise

Staycation was created by the bods at Beavertown during lockdown with the idea of bringing tropical tastes to our homes.

The brewery says the 5.2% abv IPA is ‘like summer in a can’ with a low bitterness (22 IBU) and soft mouthfeel, with notes of pure peach, nectarines, ripe sticky mango and fresh citrus, followed by a dry finish.

The accompanying mobile-based website - Beavertown Staycation – promises to take beer fans on a virtual holiday. It requires users to switch their phones to flight mode, at which point they will be transported to tropical seascape visuals and music to help people ‘enjoy those zen holiday feels (with) no plane, passport or 3am Stansted Express necessary.'

‘Staycation is a Unity Pale Ale and we challenged ourselves to create a beer that really tastes like a holiday,’ said founder Logan Plant. 

‘It has a big burst of citrus hop aromas, juicy tropical fruit notes and an underlying piney backbone from delicious Chinook hops. You could probably try pairing it with your sun cream for that perfect summertime overload.’

All profits from the beer will be given to the Trussell Trust.
