The game changing beer

1978 saw the release of Space Invaders, the arcade game that changed the world with its iconic game play and design. Today, it remains a totem for a generation, taking us back to a simpler time, where saving the universe came in 8-bit and a handful of small change could last you the night. To celebrate this game changer, we’ve created a beer that’s a classic in its own right.

Tasting notes

Cool fermented and conditioned cold for longer makes this a strong, malty lager. With a light amber colour and sweet, malt, biscuit character, the clean ferment ensures a crisp, dry finish with soft, spicy German hop undertones. Beat the end-of-level boss and toast your success with Invader.
