Camden Town launches new Marmite beer – but you’ll either love or hate it

When it comes to Marmite, you either love or hate it.

It’s best served with crumpets and cheese, while others enjoy pairing it with meat or seafood.

Whatever it is, it’s not everyone’s cup of tea, but if it’s yours, look out for a new beer launching next month.

Camden Town Brewery has created a limited-edition 4.8% ale which will be available in stores nationwide from September 13.

But it shouldn’t sound too bizarre to you as the yeast extract spread is a by-product of the beer brewing process.

Marmite brand manager Sophie Allen said it “originates from brewer’s yeast so we’ve gone full circle and put it back into beer.”

She added: “Marmite fans love it when we surprise them and put their favourite yeasty spread into new products.”

Sophie noted the product is strictly for their over-18 fans only as it comes with an alcohol by volume (ABV) of 4.8%.

And the beer was created with the help of Camden Town Brewery.

The brewers used smoked Rauch malt and Perle hops as well as the spread to give the beer a smoky flavour.

Ashleigh Amos, of Camden Town Brewery, said: “Marmite is such an iconic brand that’s been dividing the nation for over 100 years, so we couldn’t think of anyone more iconic to launch a collaboration beer with.

“Combining Marmite’s distinctive flavours with our never pasteurized beer might seem like an unlikely pairing at first – but trust us, you’re going to love it.”

When it is released next month, a four-pack will cost £8.
