Unique Aspect

Each year we produce an imperial stout called Wildebeest made with cocao nibs, fresh coffee, and vanilla pods. We had an idea to change it up and decided to brew it twice. One for the traditional Wildebeest and then and one to put into fresh first fill red wine barrels for a year to oak age.

Sour Stout stems from vatting porters in London circa 1800, where old sour beer was blended with fresh stock to give it complexity. We’ve taken this to a wild place looking for an intentional barrel and wine character to liven the palate of an otherwise intense mouth-feel. The tannic red wine notes beautifully balance with the coffee, chocolate, and vanilla, making this a perfectly decadent winter warmer!

Food Pairings

The complexity of Wineybeest means that it works really well with simple flavours. Dark chocolate tart will bring all the vinous fruit character to the fore. Going with a mixed berry fool flips this on its head and brings all the decadent chocolate and coffee notes out of the beer.

Alternatively serve the pairing and go straight for Wineybeest as your desert and marvel at the flavour development as it opens up, warming in your hand.
