Kenya Breweries Limited (KBL) has launched a new Guinness variant, Hop House 13; a premium, international quality lager making its entry in Nairobi from 27th September with roll out intended to continue across the country later in the year.

Hop House 13 is a flavorful lager from the house of Guinness available across Europe with Kenya being the first market in Africa to launch it.  

Hop House 13 has both depth of flavour and crisp lager refreshment making it perfect for casual social occasions. Hop House 13 combines tradition and novelty, by balancing the care and experience 250 years of Guinness brewing provides, with a new, contemporary style of premium international quality lager.

Speaking at the launch, Kenya Breweries Limited Marketing Manager - Guinness, Ms. Nduku Wamakau said, “Hop House 13 will launch with an experiential event that will tap into all senses of our consumers allowing them to experience the excitement about this new lager from Guinness. It has been a great success across Europe where it is currently available, and we are very excited to be the first African country to showcase this great premium, international quality lager to our beer drinkers.”

Created in Dublin, and brewed locally in Kenya, it is double hopped for more taste, and made with Guinness yeast and locally sourced malt and hops. It is a distinctive full flavoured lager bursting with zingy hoppiness and balanced with a malty finish. It has a sweet fruity aroma, with hints of apricot and peach, and subtle malt notes breaking through. It is full flavored while still being crisp and hoppy (but not bitter) with a refreshing clean finish.

The 4.1% ABV lager will be available for KSHS 210 per 500ml bottle.
