Bagel Beer is Now a Thing

Yes, it’s official – you can now drink bagel-flavoured beer courtesy of the good people at New York Bakery Co., already renowned for their excellent bagels in collaboration with London Brewery and Tap Room Canopy Beer Co. And why not? Bagel-making and beer-brewing are essentially fermentative in their processes.

We hear that Bagel Beer at 5.7% is fruity, smooth and easy to drink; made by chopping New York Bakery Co.’s Original bagels which were lightly toasted and chopped for brewing. Cinnamon has been added for depth and the beer comes in a unique bottle featuring Lady Liberty.

Christina Honigfort of New York Bakery Co., comments: “We get through 82 million packs and eat over 500 million bagels a year in the UK. That’s why we need to celebrate the wonderful bagel with something that little bit different and more than a little bit special. Cue limited edition Bagel Beer. What better way to celebrate the diversity of the bagel with all its tastes, flavours and varieties? We cut no corners to produce the best standard of bagels and when it comes to beer, Canopy Beer Co. are no different. Bagels boiled and baked the New York way; beer brewed and bottled the London way. Best drunk chilled, (responsibly, of course) with a bagel in hand!”

The limited edition Bagel Beer is on sale for £3.00 via now. Alternatively, grab some friends and head down to Canopy Brewing Co.’s Tap Room in Herne Hill or The Sympathetic Ear in Brixton to try on draught.
