Boston Beer Company’s Marathon Brewing has launched 26.2 Brew, a beer that is brewed with Himalayan sea salt and coriander.

With 4% alcohol-by-volume (ABV), the ale has 120 calories per serving with 9g of carbohydrates.

The Boston Beer Company research and product innovation manager Shelley Smith said: “As someone who loves beer and running, having the opportunity to brew a beer that helps runners celebrate their hard work was a passion project for me.

“While most brewers are stripping flavour to hit a certain calorie mark, we focused on brewing a beer that not only fit what runners were looking for but also delivered a great taste.”

“Understanding what is important to runners is what made brewing this beer different from what is currently available. While most brewers are stripping flavour to hit a certain calorie mark, we focused on brewing a beer that not only fit what runners were looking for but also delivered a great taste.”

Shelley Smith developed the 26.2 Brew working from the original Boston 26.2 Brew that has been available for the last seven years in Boston.

Marathon legend Meb Keflezighi said: “I’ve run my fair share of marathons over the years, and there are countless finish lines throughout the training process that deserve a celebration.

“Anyone that has trained for a marathon who is dedicated enough to wake up before dawn or face the elements to get their miles in knows that part of training is running for the reward
