Cipressa – Our beer brewed in honour of “The Milan-San Remo”
When March rolls around the corner, it brings with it the prospect of warmer days and lighter mornings. Giving us the well-needed nudge to get back on our bikes and to enjoy a ride out with a celebratory beer or two along the way.
March also brings us the very first monument race of the season – The Milan-San Remo!
The race itself, although only lasting 1 day consists of the most action-packed, drama-filled, intense final few kilometres that any rider could ask for. This year’s race wasn’t an exception, with 26-year-old cyclist Julian Alaphilippe out-sprinting the firm favourites to take the 2019 victory.
There are two climbs in the Milan-San Remo that separate the boys from the men. With the first of these two legendary climbs known as the Cipressa. So guess what, we’ve only gone and brewed a monumental beer in honour of such a monumental climb!
We’ve set out to make a real zesty number to celebrate the first monument race of the year. The Cipressa is an orange sour, that’s packed with an explosion of flavours. We’ve crammed in a whole load of orange zest and tropical fruit flavours that completely take over your pallet.
Coinciding with the date of the race. We will be releasing our first Pro Season Special release of the year on the exact same date. You can catch the Cipressa on our bar this weekend for its first debut and will be up on the Bar at our Micropub The Wheelie Thirsty some time in the week.
