Fourayes and Nelson's new apple brew sells out in under a day at ale festival

Core Commander, the new apple ale made by Fourayes Farm and Nelson Brewery, has been successfully launched at Wetherspoon's Real Ale Festival.

The brew sold out in under 24 hours at the Crosse Keys Wetherspoon's in London. It is now being distributed around Kent and will be appearing at various shows and festivals throughout the summer.

Kent-based apple grower and processor Fourayes and Kent brewer the Nelson Brewery began work on Core Commander last year as part of the Bramley apple bicentenary celebrations.

Nelson Brewery owner Piers MacDonald was hopeful that the new drink would be well-received at the launch. He said: "We purposefully developed a light ale that we hoped would appeal to a wide range of pub goers. The first batch has now been bottled ready for distribution locally and we'll be taking Core Commander to a range of festivals and events this summer."

Fourayes managing director, added: "Kent is the largest growing region for Bramleys in the world so we were pleased to be able to form a partnership with a Kent brewery to create the new Bramley brew."
