Constellation Brands' San Diego craft brewer, Ballast Point, has launched its first nationally-distributed beer to be based on a cocktail recipe.

Moscow Mule Ale contains lemon zest and ginger to give it a flavour of the classic Moscow Mule vodka drink, Ballast Point said today. It is a product of the unit's R&D programme and is being produced at the brewery's newest facility, the Trade Street brewery, which specialises in sour and barrel-aged beers.

"The brewers at our Little Italy R&D brewery developed the Moscow Mule Ale after testing out a number of other cocktail-inspired brews like the Old Fashioned and Irish Coffee," said Aaron Justus, director of Ballast Point's R&D team. "The Moscow Mule Ale was a runaway favourite among the team and our tasting room customers, making it an easy decision to share it with the rest of the country."

Moscow Mule Ale is a limited-release under Ballast Point's Explorer series and is now rolling out nation-wide in both draught and 12oz bottles through to July.
