Asian seafood restaurant and bar Sexy Fish is launching its very own Sexy Fish Lager (4.4% ABV).
Brewed in partnership with leading Scottish craft brewer, Harviestoun, Sexy Fish Lager promises a sessionable sip; designed to pair with the restaurant’s seafood menu and decadent interior.
Available to enjoy in 330ml bottle exclusively at Mayfair’s Sexy Fish, the lavish lager makes its debut this month; becoming the restaurant’s first and only house beer.
Brewers at Harviestoun were inspired by Sexy Fish’s approach to Asian fusion and classic ingredients used in Japanese and Thai cuisine. Crisp, refreshing and racy, the finished beer offers aromas of lemongrass and flavours of zesty citrus and coconut.
The collaboration is the latest in a series of high profile restaurant partnerships for Harviestoun, whose flagship brands – Schiehallion (4.8% ABV) and Bitter & Twisted (4.2% ABV) – are coveted by chefs and fans of craft beer and food pairing alike.
Xavier Landais, Director of Bars at Caprice Holdings, said: “The thought of creating a Sexy Fish beer really appealed to us and partnering with Harviestoun seemed like an obvious choice. Not only do they brew award-winning beers but they are great fun to work with. Together, we wanted to create a lager that would appeal both to the beer connoisseur and to anyone who just wanted to order a refreshing drink. This is the first time Caprice Holdings has created a beer and the final product is everything we had hoped for: approachable, full-flavoured and delicious.”
Toby Knowles, Managing Director of Harviestoun Brewery said: “When Sexy Fish invite you to collaborate on a lager, you don’t say no. After all, it’s not everyday you get to design a beer that pairs with octopus carpaccio and artwork by Damien Hirst in equal measure. The result is a cross continental love affair, fusing big, bold American hops with aromatic Japanese varieties for that Asian fusion experience in a glass.”
