Camden Town Brewery is preparing to toast the end of the year with the launch of its limited-edition lager, Beer 2016.

Aged in cognac, tequila and bourbon barrels for the past 12 months, this is the latest in Camden’s ‘year beer’ series launched in 2013. This year’s edition is available in a limited run of 2,016 bottles.

The ‘freestyle’ lager has notes of dark rum, sweet treacle and cocoa and is available in larger average 750ml bottles, illustrated by London artist Jay Cover, ideal for sharing with friends and family.

Jasper Cuppaidge, founder and CEO of Camden Town Brewery, said: “Beer 2016 to me is a beer to sum up the year; something to remember all the great things that have happened over the past 12 months, encapsulating the memories of what we’ve been up to here at Camden. Our yearly beers are one to hold on to, remembering who brewed it, the amount of time and love that went in to it. It’s a way of looking back, keeping the memories intact and getting us excited for what’s next to come.”

Beer 2016 launched on 24 November. The seasonal lager, which has an ABV of 8.1%, is priced £9.99 and available from, as well as in good bottle shops.
