Carnival Horizon 2018 Craft Beer Announcement

carnival horizonCraft Beer Meets Cruising Aboard the Carnival Horizon

Craft beer lovers, rejoice! If combining the lush taste of custom brewed craft beers and the rollicking fun of a Carnival cruise sounds like your idea of heaven, you’ll love Carnival Cruise Line’s latest pairing. Carnival Cruise Line has announced that it will offer four new craft brews aboard Carnival Horizon when the cruise ship makes its debut this April. The Parched Pig craft beers will be brewed directly on board the new cruise ship and nowhere else, exclusively offered to guests at the first-ever Bar-B-Que Smokehouse|Brewhouse created by star chef Guy Fieri.

Carnival Vice President of Beverage Operations Edward Allen and expert brew master Colin Presby, who developed the new beers, announced the new venture in January. The announcement took place during a traditional keg-tapping ceremony aboard Carnival Vista, the first North American cruise ship to offer an onboard brewery.

Happy Traveler Comment
I am writing you this note because I want you to know what a great employee you have in Robin! We have worked with her now for at least two if not more cruises, and she always handles everything quickly and promptly and with ease for us. We have had to change dates a couple of times with the latest cruise we are booking with your company and she always handles it graciously and with ease. Robin is great to work with, and with customer service as good as hers is we will keep coming back to her for our travel needs! Thanks! — Tyson B.

The new Parched Pig beers will be brewed directly under the supervision of a pro brewmaster, only inches from your table. The delicious new beers, which were particularly designed to bring out the smoky, succulent tastes of authentic barbeque, include the following:

  • Parched Pig Farmhouse Ale – a lightly hopped beer with a fruity, complex character, mild spice notes, and a dry finish
  • Parched Pig Smoked Porter – A robust, full-bodied beer brewed with in-house smoked malt for a bold flavor with notes of molasses
  • Parched Pig Toasted Amber – A well-balanced, smooth brew with toasted caramel notes and a rich, amber color with wide appeal
  • Parched Pig West Coast IPA – a bright, hoppy beer with a bright flavor profile, loaded with bitterness and distinctive citrus and pine aroma

If you love brews and barbeque, you’re certain to enjoy Guy’s Pig & Anchor Bar-B-Que Smokehouse|Brewhouse on Carnival’s Horizon. The original dining concept, which was created by American Royal National Barbecue Hall of Famer Guy Fieri, combines an onboard brewery with a full-service restaurant serving authentic barbeque and side dishes.  Guests can tour the brewery, pick up a refillable growler, and enjoy mouth-watering barbeque dishes while cheering on one of the live music performances. The Parched Pig line of craft brews was created specifically to pair well with the dishes offered at Pig & Anchor.
