Carnival Cruise Line has launched its own canned beer which is now available across the fleet and all private destinations.
New Carnival Canned Beer
Carnival has partnered with Brew Hub which is based in Lakeland, Florida to bring its own branded can and kegged beer. The new 16-ounce cans beers are already available on all 26 Carnival ships along with private islands including Half Moon Cay in the Bahamas.
Edward Allen, Carnival’s vice president of beverage operations, said:
“With the success of our breweries on Carnival Vista and Carnival Horizon the obvious next step was to let all of our guests fleetwide enjoy our refreshing craft beers and that’s where our partnership with Brew Hub began.”
“To be the first cruise line to ever scale up its beverage operations by canning and kegging their own beer is unprecedented. My hope is that our guests will take a four-pack home with them to share with family and friends as a refreshing and memorable reminder of their cruise.”
The cruise line is the first in the industry to can and keg its own beer and it followers the hugely popular brewery at sea featured on Carnival Vista, Carnival Horizon and the upcoming Carnival Panorama. In fact, the team behind the breweries on those ships are also involved in bringing the new beers to guests across the fleet.
So here are the three different type beers which the cruise line is offering from recipes developed from the Carnival brew team:
- ThirstyFrog Caribbean Wheat – an unfiltered wheat beer with flavors of orange and spices.
- ParchedPig West Coast IPA – the embodiment of a traditional West Coast India Pale Ale, this hoppy, intense beer is loaded with bitterness with a bright flavor profile and distinctive aroma of citrus and pine.
- ParchedPig Toasted Amber Ale – highlighted by its rich amber color and notes of toasted caramel and biscuit, this beer is well balanced, smooth and highly drinkable.
The announcement was made onboard Carnival Magic when the ship was docked at PortMiami, Florida. The beers can be purchased at the bars in can form or on tap. Guests can even take home their own four pack to remind them of the cruise.
It was also revealed that when Carnival Panorama joins the fleet and debuts from California in December 2019 unique brews are being developed including Miami Guava Wheat and Pumpkin Spice Ale.
Almost 300,000 pints of Carnival private labels have been served to guests since the first brewery at sea in North Americ was introduced on Carnival Vista in 2016.
