Crispy seaweed may be familiar with Chinese takeout, but have you ever tried it in a beer? That’s right, you can now! ‘Seaduced’ is a seaweed Pale Ale made with seaweed grown on the Yorkshire coast.
Yes, you read that correctly. This delicious drink is made with seaweed farmed by SeaGrown, a Scarborough-based company that grows its seaweed in the clean, cold waters of the North Sea.
The seaweed is farmed at sea by the pioneering Yorkshire company, which means the novel farming method is sustainable in many ways. The sun and sea are all that are required for seaweed production; no chemicals, electricity, or land are required.
The company were featured on The Hairy Bikers’ latest show Hairy Bikers Go North, which featured a range of places across Yorkshire.
The ‘Seaduced’ SeaGrown Kelp Pale Ale is defined as a light salty and umami-flavoured beer with punchy hops. Brass Castle, a Malton-based award-winning brewery, makes it.
Even better, as it grows, the seaweed absorbs a large quantity of carbon and releases oxygen into the water, making it beneficial all around. You may feel good about downing a few cans of this seaweed pale ale knowing that you’re helping the environment.
You can enjoy a can of this unique beer for £3.50 for a 440ml can from the beer shop here. You can also visit their taproom in Malton, all their recipes veg*n & gluten-free which means everyone can enjoy the microbrewery’s beers.
