HP Sauce has launched a brown ale that tastes like a full English breakfast

Are they alright?

In what is a release nobody saw coming – or even really asked for, to be honest – HP Sauce has just launched its own brown ale.

And it’s a brown ale inspired by a full English breakfast, no less.

Fresh off the back of Aunt Bessie’s and Northern Monk releasing a lineup of limited-edition brews inspired by British comfort foods a couple of months back, HP Sauce has enlisted the help of Camden Town Brewery for a new very-British beer collaboration – Camden HP Brown Ale.

The two British brands have joined forces in a bid to “unite generations of beer and brown sauce fans” across the country.

Camden HP Brown Ale combines the very-best of two British staples that have been enjoyed over dinner tables and local pubs for centuries, and according to manufacturers, is designed to be “sipped on over dinner, supper, or tea with your Nan, Dad or best mate”.


The “quirky” new tipple is said to be inspired by “the bold and timeless flavours of everyone’s favourite brown sauce”.

Instead of adding HP sauce directly into the beer, the brewing team used the ingredients and flavours of HP and added them into the brewing process for a “fresh and unique” brown ale that gives a taste of what HP and Camden Town Brewery do best.


Aromatic malt, date puree, and HP’s signature spices have been added to the beer for a subtle peppery and clove background, as well as to replicate the sauce’s rich chestnut colour.

A hybrid fermentation with a sour ale strain also gives the beer a “not-quite-sour, not-quite-tart” note that HP is famous for.

“For generations, people have been enjoying HP over the dinner table,” explained Georgina Fotopoulou, who is the Marketing Manager at HP Sauce, “And now, they get to enjoy the intense and rich flavour in one of their favourite drinks – beer – and the result is delicious.


“We hope our HP fans will love this as much as they love our sauce.”

Camden HP Brown Ale has an ABV of 4.0%, and is available to order now for a limited time only in 330ml bottles for £15 for four-pack.
