How we made Hawkstone Sundowner

Back to all articles

There’s nothing quite like a beautiful British summer and there’s nothing like Hawkstone. So we wanted to create a special edition brew that is perfect for sunny days or music festivals like Glasto. And we used the best of British ingredients to bring it to life.

Summer brew? Can do

Sundowner was brewed with sunshine in mind. It’s a beer that feels refreshing and light for summer days. We used British Olicana as our primary hop to give it an unforgettably fruity and tropical flavour. And we brewed it with flaked rice to really let the Olicana to shine through. This is one of Rick's best creations yet.

Then there’s the can. We decided to sell this one in cans to add to the festival feel. They taste unbelievably good from the fridge or a cooler packed with ice.

This beer is all about festivals and fun. It’s about parks and gardens, barbecues and good times. It’s like summer in a can. Get it while you can.
