We're always looking forward at Errant and this beer is no exception. A wheat beer is a style we've always wanted to try, and it wouldn't be an Errant beer if we didn't mix it up with something special.

Introducing Future Sailor. Using special wheat yeast to give the style it's distinctive clove taste and pacifica hop and juniper berries to balance it with a botanical citrus finish; Future Sailor will be as crisp as the spirit juniper inspires.

We knew that when it came to juniper, we had to go to the one place in Newcastle that knew gin, Pleased to Meet You. Future Sailor is a proud collaboration brew that brings together the best of both worlds, with surprising results.
