Deputy editor John first discovered Big Drop Brewing Co, a brewery that specialises in beers never more than 0.5% alcohol, during the most recent ‘Dry January’ – and enjoyed them so much he carried on drinking them.
And when the Ipswich-based brewer got in touch about their new cycling-themed Tailwind IPA, in collaboration with apparel manufacturer Paria, we thought we’d offer the combo – a 12 pack of Tailwind and the Paria x Big Drop jersey – up as a competition prize.
Of Tailwind, Big Drop says “this crisp, refreshing IPA oozes scents of lemon zest and tropical pineapple. A subtle bitterness works in tandem with the tropical citrus flavour notes from the Chinook & Cascade hop pairing, with Willamette delivering a round balanced spicy finish. Green lanes and the rolling countryside create the perfect summer backdrop for this fresh rehydrating drop, mid or post ride!”
