June 2017: Lions4.7abv
The British and Irish Lions is a rugby union team selected from players eligible for any of the Home Nations – the national sides of England, Ireland, Scotland and Wales. The Lions are a Test side, and generally select international players, but they can pick uncapped players available to any one of the four unions. The side tours every four years, with these rotating among Australia, New Zealand, and South Africa.
‘Lions’ will be released once every four years to celebrate these tours.
Brewed once a year to celebrate the great Britsh institution that is the All England Championships held at Wimbledon.
A cheeky little number combining Goldings, Cascade, Slovenian Goldings and Wolf Hops, along with four different malts and wheats, hopefully Backhand is a winner!
