It’s a sip of Cornwall

Cornwall, with its stunning coastline, picturesque beaches, and vibrant culture, has long been a favourite destination for travellers seeking relaxation and adventure alike. It's a place where time seems to slow down, and every moment feels like a vacation. Meor IPA is a product of this unique coastal region. Its name, "Meor," is derived from the beach name Porthmeor, with Porth meaning cove in Cornish. When you crack open a can of Meor, you're essentially taking a sip of Cornwall itself, which is always the goal for our Cornish brewery.

Meor IPA strikes a perfect balance between its malt sweetness and hoppy bitterness. The flavours harmonize on your palate, creating a delightful and well-rounded taste experience. It's a testament to the careful craftsmanship that goes into each batch, resulting in a beer that's both approachable and complex.
