Carnival Cruise brews up its own private label beer
Carnival Cruise Lines is the first cruise line to brew up its own private label beer through a partnership with Lakeland, Fla.-based Brew Hub.
"With the success of our breweries on Carnival Vista and Carnival Horizon the obvious next step was to let all of our guests fleet-wide enjoy our refreshing craft beers and that's where our partnership with Brew Hub began," said Edward Allen, Carnival's vice president of beverage operations. "To be the first cruise line to ever scale up its beverage operations by canning and kegging their own beer is unprecedented. My hope is that our guests will take a four-pack home with them to share with family and friends as a refreshing and memorable reminder of their cruise."
The three beers, which are based on recipes developed in-house by Carnival's brewery team, are now available in 16-ounce cans and on tap across its 26 ships and at all private destinations. The beers include:
- ThirstyFrog Caribbean Wheat — an unfiltered wheat beer with flavors of orange and spices.
- ParchedPig West Coast IPA — the embodiment of a traditional West Coast India Pale Ale, this hoppy beer is bitter with a bright flavor profile.
- ParchedPig Toasted Amber Ale — features a rich amber color and smooth taste.
