Australian ale makes British debut with Castle Pubs

Throughout this spring, as part of its special seasonal listings, Mitchells & Butlers’ Castle Pubs estate is giving Dog Days Session Ale, from Australian brewer Little Creatures, it’s eagerly anticipated UK debut.

Dog Days, a beer which started life as a limited edition ‘Summer Seasonal’ release in Australia only three years ago, has finally made its way to Britain and will be served exclusively in over 100 unique and historic Castle pubs.

Craft beer fans, experts and newcomers can enjoy the ‘peachy, juicy-fruit hop flavours’ of the down under brew until early June. The addition of Dog Days to the Castle estate craft beer line-up will sit alongside Little Creatures’ older sibling, Little Creatures Pale Ale, on taps for the same seasonal window.

Drinks Procurement Manager for Mitchells & Butlers, Ben Lockwood, said, “Little Creatures Pale Ale has always been a popular choice in our pubs, so when the opportunity came to be the exclusive UK launch partner for Dog Days Session Ale it was too good to turn down.

“Little Creatures is an iconic brewery known across the globe and this genuine import is sure to be a firm favourite with our guests. Dog Days will join Castle’s line up of eclectic seasonal listings, which already includes plenty other exciting and exclusive brews.”

John Hadingham from Little Creatures, said, “Mitchells & Butlers will provide the perfect spring board for Dog Days to propel its way into the taste buds of the U.K.’s craft beer lovers.

“Enjoying a beer is just as much about the context and the attention to detail with which it is served as it is about the beer itself. With this in mind, there is no doubt that Mitchells and Butlers will provide a top notch ‘Dog Days’ experience.”

Guests will be able to enjoy Dog Days across M&B’s Castle estate until middle of June, including the likes of The White Horse in Parsons Green, Southwark Tavern at Borough Market and the Adelphi in Leeds.
