New beer for UK top dish fish and chips

12 May, 2017

A new beer will launch in June to specifically accompany the UK national dish, fish and chips.

Poppies Pale Ale has been created by The Five Points Brewing Company and Poppies Fish & Chips, both based in London, to be served alongside one of the UK’s most popular meals.

Ural Hassan, owner of Poppies Fish & Chips, said: “We’ve had great fun collaborating with The Five Points team on Poppies Pale Ale. It’s an excellent brew with a nod to our east end heritage, and we can’t wait to see the reaction to it.”

Poppies Pale Ale will be officially launched in London on National Fish and Chip Day on Friday 2 June 2017.

The brewery’s co-owner and director Edward Mason worked alongside head brewer and co-founder Greg Hobbs to produce a recipe for the Poppies Pale Ale.

Greg Hobbs, head brewer at The Five Points Brewing Company, said: “Working together with Boutique Bar Brands and the Poppies team to create the perfect beer for fish & chips has been a really exciting and unusual project. We are passionate about beer and food matching, and delighted with the result of the Poppies Pale Ale.”
