Space Taxi, West Coast Pale Ale 4.6% ABV
If you’re wondering about the inspiration behind the name of this West Coast Pale Ale, then look no further than Elon Musk’s SpaceX, the reusable rocket that will keep going up into space time and time again. Not that we are sending our beer into space, but what it does mean is that several expressions of Space Taxi will be brewed, each with a different hop variety all with the aim of showcasing its character and treating you, the drinker.
With El Dorado the hop being used here, the beer is dark orange verging on amber in colour, and there are pear (think canned pear rather than a grocer’s Conference), ripe mango and the light aromatics of a ripe Galia melon on the nose. The palate is boosted by notes of pear, soft white peach, apricot, more mango, Galia melon and delicate biscuitiness before a lovely lingering bitter and dry finish.
Hops: Simcoe, Amarillo and Eukanot
Food pairing: Such is the sunny disposition of this beer that it will go exceedingly well with a doorstep of a Reuben sandwich in which the fruitiness and bitterness of the beer acts in concert with the pickle and umami of the sandwich to create a palate-boosting symphony.

At the Frome Brewing Company Ltd we work with an extremely talented and knowledgeable team of brewers. We pride ourselves on producing the highest quality beers and we're not going to send anything out of our doors that we wouldn't want to drink ourselves. We do like to experiment - but more importantly, we're all about balancing delicate flavours to produce easy drinking beers.
In other words... "it's all about the beer!"
Brewing takes place up to five times a week, with malt from Warminster, hops from Charles Faram and our very own yeast. Our yeast, which is a similar strain to Youngs, is particularly versatile. Our beers are all vegan (but they're not gluten free).
We have a diverse range of beers with colours, strengths and flavours to suit all palates - if you're not sure what to go for, try a mixed case and we'll send you a selection of our finest.
