Carnival Cruise Line announced that it will offer four new craft beers that will be brewed aboard the new Carnival Horizon which is set to debut this April.

The beers were developed by brewmaster Colin Presby and will be offered at Guy’s Pig & Anchor Bar-B-Que Smokehouse|Brewhouse, a new dining concept.

The announcement was made by Presby and Carnival Vice President of Beverage Operations Edward Allen at a traditional keg-tapping ceremony held aboard Carnival Vista last weekend.

The new beers are:

ParchedPig Smoked Porter – brewed with in-house smoked malt, this robust, full-bodied beer offers big and bold flavours and notes of molasses and hickory smoke, providing the perfect complement to Smokehouse|Brewhouse’s BBQ favourites.

ParchedPig Farmhouse Ale – this lightly hopped beer is distinguished by its blond colour, fruity and complex character with mild spice notes that balance the brew’s dry finish.

ParchedPig Toasted Amber Ale – highlighted by its rich amber colour and notes of toasted caramel and biscuit, this beer is well balanced, smooth and highly drinkable.

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 flavour profile and distinctive aroma of citrus and pine.

“Smokehouse|Brewhouse is a unique culinary concept and we’ve created four fantastic brewed-on-board craft beers that not only showcase different tastes and brewing styles but also serve as the ideal accompaniment to the venue’s delicious array of barbecue offerings,” said Presby.

Smokehouse|Brewhouse will also offer up a rustic, down-home décor as well as a variety of Fieri-designed favourites, all smoked “low and slow” using the chef’s signature rubs and spices.
