A new Lincolnshire ale has been launched to mark the centenary of the Royal Air Force and the county’s connection to the RAF past, present and future.

Centennial Flight is being brewed by Lincolnshire Brewing Company in partnership with Visit Lincoln, the organisation which promotes tourism across Lincolnshire.

Head Brewer and Co-Director of Lincolnshire Brewing Company, Karl Brown, said: “As a Lincolnshire company we wanted to mark the 100th anniversary of the RAF.

“Our customers love commemorative ales and this is the second one we have done in partnership with Visit Lincoln.

“It’s a pale ale brewed with Centennial hops which are renowned for their citrus and floral aroma. The ale also includes dry hopped with Pilot which offers a spicy marmalade note.”

Digital marketing coordinator at Visit Lincoln, Joel Murray, said: “Quality food and drink plays such an important role in the wider tourism experience, and Lincolnshire Brewing Company’s commemorative ale is an effective way of including it in our tourism marketing this year.”
