Carnival Cruise Lines is jumping on the Aussie beer bandwagon with the launch of its own bespoke ale to be sold exclusively on its Sydney-based ships.

Created in partnership with Sydney’s oldest pub brewery, the Lord Nelson Brewery Hotel, the cruise line’s Thirsty Frog Summer Ale is a refreshing beer which captures the spirit of a holiday at sea.

Lord Nelson Brewery Hotel owner, Blair Hayden, said the brewery had put a lot of work into crafting the ale, which appropriately combines both Australian and American hops.

“Thirsty Frog Summer Ale is a very drinkable beer with subtle malt flavours and floral citrus aromas,” he said.

The 100% natural ale will be available on tap across 14 bars on the cruise line’s Sydney-based Carnival Spirit from June 1.

Customers will also find it aboard its latest Australian ship, Carnival Legend, which debuts in Sydney in September.

“Carnival Cruise Lines has put a lot of effort into ‘Aussifying’ our ships for the local market,” Carnival Cruise Lines vice president Australia Jennifer Vandekreeke said.

“We are thrilled to create our own authentic craft ale which really acknowledges Australians’ appreciation of a quality beer.”
