Unique Aspect

Winter marries the best of our local surrounds with a desire to do something different. The result is a fitting finale to the rooting Around series and a perfect addition to the long dark nights of winter. Expect a warmth and earthiness from this wile ale, with plum and raisin notes from an aromatic malt bill whilst red rye delivers a crimson hue and nutty overtone. Top with a creamy smooth mouth fell and your have a triumphant climax to the series.

Food Pairings

With a strong nutty and fruity base to the red beer with vinous character this beer fits well as a wine replacement at the dinner table. Think roast goose with honey, five spice and citrus zest rub, with all the trimmings. Citrus characters complimenting both the dish and the beer while the malt base compliments the sweet, roasted skin and the bitter pine needs provide a contrast to the rest of the pairing. Layered and complex but delightful pairings.
