Hoppy Holidays, from Ruark

After a standout year of new products and award wins, we’re seeing out 2023 with bucketloads of Christmas cheer – and for the fifth year running, our very own festive beer.

Our latest collaboration with Leigh-on-Sea Brewery sees us providing the rhythm while they supply the brews, for a crisp and refreshing IPA (on the stronger side of seasonable) with the classic American West Coast balance of citrus and pine.

Inspired by our obsession with foot-tapping tunes, Rhythm and Brews is an exclusive beer created to thank the friends and partners who have made this year another chart-topping success for Ruark.

Once more, local designer Neil Fendell provided the artwork. A nod to his fabulous Ruark-sponsored Herd in The City elephant, the label is a riot of colour that celebrates our connection to music and showcases our beloved R1 radio.

2023 can only be described as a smash hit for Ruark, having launched our showstopping 100 Series and collected a host of new awards to pop up on the mantlepiece – and we’re hoping next year will be just as exciting.

“We’re really looking forward to 2024. Our R2 Mk4 winning ‘Product of the Year’ and our MR1’s being awarded ‘Best Desktop Speaker’ for the 7th year in a row by What Hi-Fi? is a great way to see out the year - and with our recently launched 100 Series gaining acclaim from press and customers alike, we have a good feeling that 2024 may well be our best year yet,” says Alan O’Rourke, founder of Ruark Audio.

“Thank you to our customers and trade friends alike for all your support and allowing us to thrive in an industry we passionately love!”

Rhythm and Brews is a one-of-a-kind beer created for our extended Ruark family. If you’re in the mood for a brew, check out Leigh on Sea Brewery’s full menu of delicious craft beers, including our award-winning summer collaboration beer, Beach Hut Brew.
