Crabbie’s is partnering with Dudley-based craft brewer Sadler’s to launch a gluten-free Stout alcoholic ginger beer.

The launch is available in 500ml bottles, RRP £1.80 and has an ABV of 4.2% and joins the band’s Crafty Ginger Collection range, which also contains Original, Raspberry and IPA varieties.

Anja Weise-O’Connor, Crabbie’s senior marketing manager, said: “Darker beers, such as stouts, are expected to see a resurgence as part of the craft beer category growth.”
