Unique Aspect

Ghost Zapper is our second collaboration with Magic Rock Brewing following on from our bretted oat IPA - ‘Men Who Stare At Oats’. This time we bring the Wild and Magic together for something completely different!

This single foudre release has been inoculated with the lees of a beer called Squashed Grape. This beer has been fermented with the local microflora present on the grape skins; giving stunning aromas of ripe stone fruit and a bright vinous acidity balanced by oak and a little brown sugar richness from the malt.

Food Pairings

Try a rich game pate that’s rich and fatty or a braised red meat like ox cheek for a sumptuous slow cook match. The acidity of Ghost Zapper will be a perfect main meal pairing replacing the wine element from the dish. The Squashed Grape inoculation has provided a tannic, vinous backbone to this beer and the gentle aging in foudre will work its magic!
