Cunard cruise line teams up with Dark Revolution to launch craft beer range



06 November 2019

Cruise ship company Cunard has partnered with Salisbury-based craft brewer Dark Revolution to create a three-strong house range of beers.

The beers, a stout, an IPA and a pils, are exclusive to Cunard’s 'three queens' – the Queen Mary 2, Queen Elizabeth and Queen Victoria liners.

The stout, Cunard Black, is described as a ‘biscotti breakfast stout’ with flavours of oats and dark roasted British malts balanced with Sumatran coffee, Spanish almonds and Madagascan vanilla to create a 'stout beer with a touch of sweetness'.

Cunard Red is an IPA combining American hops and British malts – a nod to the cruise company's transatlantic crossings, while Cunard Gold is a classic German-style pils.

The brews are available on tap, in 340ml cans and as a tasting flight. The beers join Cunard’s collection of drinks, including the three Queens Gin, Cunard Private Label and Cunard Private Reserve wines.

Cunard is a Southampton-based cruise company, owned by Carnival Corporation.
