The fourth product in Guinness' Brewers Project, Hop House 13, is now out in the UK after an initial launch across the Irish sea.

It's a lager brewed with Irish barley, Galaxy and Topaz Australian hops, and American Mosaic hops. Plus Guinness yeast, naturally.

Guiness brewer Peter Simpson said his aim was to make a lager with 'lots of character and flavour'. Guinness' head of innovation Nick Curtis-Davis added: 'There is huge curiosity, interest and demand for new beers among drinkers nowadays and our brewers are excited to be playing their part in this beer renaissance. We believe Hop House 13 will appeal to premium lager drinkers who are looking for beer with more taste and more character but without compromising on the refreshing taste that lager offers.'

It's available both in draught format and in 330ml bottles, with an abv of 5%.

It joins the Dublin Porter, West Indies Porter and the most recently launched Golden Ale in the Brewers Project range, Guinness' answer to the current craft beer landscape.

RRP £4.50/pint, £3.80/330ml bottle, Diageo, 020 8978 6000
