NOMAD Pale Ale > Eurostar collaborate with Two Tribes Brewery
Eurostar, the high-speed rail service that links the UK to mainland Europe, launched an exclusive pale ale onboard its services on 15th June 2023 providing travellers with award-winning and refreshing beer to enjoy on the journey through Europe.
The beer, called NOMAD, has been brewed by London brewing provocateurs Two Tribes at their King’s Cross-based brewery, found just minutes from Eurostar’s London home, St Pancras International.
The exclusive new beer brewed especially for Eurostar by Two Tribes uses the finest British and European ingredients, along with sustainable brewing methods to create a bright and easy-going beer reminiscent of sunny European summers.
With NOMAD, Eurostar invite customers to let their tastebuds explore Europe before arriving at their destination. The brand new 4.5% ABV pale ale has been made using UK, Belgian and which provide a smooth caramel and toffee backbone to the beer complimented with hoppy hints of citrus fruit such as grapefruit and orange peel.
The NOMAD by Eurostar pale ale was named in honour of those who travel to seek new and intriguing adventures in Eurostar’s exciting city destinations such as London, Paris, Lille, Brussels, Rotterdam and Amsterdam.
The can, designed by Two Tribes, celebrates famous landmarks across all of Eurostar’s destinations. These includes London St Pancras’ famous clock tower, the Atomium in Brussels, tulips and bicycles in Amsterdam, Rodin’s Thinker statue in Paris and, of course, Eurostar’s iconic train.
Ingredients in NOMAD include the British heritage malt Maris Otter, caramel malts along with a special malt from Belgium called Chateau Biscuit, giving an element of breadiness to the beer. Mandarina Bavaria hops from Germany contribute citrus notes for a refreshing summer taste.
Andrew Robinson, Head of On-board Services says: "It was very exciting to collaborate with Two Tribes to develop and design the most sustainable and locally sourced pale ale exclusively for our customers. We are very proud of Nomad by Eurostar with its amazing European flavours that can be slowly enjoyed onboard alongside the array of other sustainable foods, drinks and snacks we offer on all our classes of service."
Justin Deighton, Founder of Two Tribes says: "We've embarked on an incredible journey with Eurostar over the past half-year, and we are thrilled to further strengthen our partnership by brewingan exclusive pale ale using the finest British and European ingredients. Two Tribes and Eurostar share a common foundation that travel holds the key to creative discovery good times. It is this shared ethos that has fuelled our collaboration, resulting in a truly exceptional beer crafted exclusively for Eurostar's discerning on-board customers."
