New Brew News – Gengy’s Drop

by Iain Smith

 

Launching at FyneFest 2017, a brand new, cask exclusive, ultra-pale ale - Gengy’s Drop!

Designed and brewed by Erasmus participant, Davide Gardosi to mark the end of his time with Fyne Ales, Gengy’s Drop is an supremely thirst-quenching light ale packed with Sorachi Ace alongside Citra and Nelson Sauvin.

The beer’s unique name comes from Davide’s nickname, Gengy, which in turn comes from the Italian word for ‘gums’. Davide earned the nickname for being the smile-iest person in Italy, something that the Fyne Ales team have enjoyed during the last few months working alongside Gengy.

In further tribute to Gengy’s great loves of hops and football, the beer’s clip is designed using the colours of AS Roma.

Check out the beer at FyneFest 2017 and out in the wild soon after!
