Unique Aspect

6 months before we even had a brewery we started talking to Tom Herbert about the Hobbs house Bakery’s 60 year old Sourdough yeast, and whether we could use it to ferment a beer. Tom was excited, we were excited! After a year of trials (each trial took a really long time to develop) we decided to loosely base the beer on a Berliner Weisse style – a historical Sour beer style from Northern Germany, but with a Wild Beer slant to it.

We have used the sourdough culture and a little brettanomyces and put the beer straight into oak barrels for its primary fermentation. It has been slowly fermenting, maturing and souring for 4 months in the barrels and will continue to evolve and develop in the bottle. Sourdough’s distinct flavour happens from both the fermentation and maturation occuring in barrels before we blend them together.

Food Pairings

Delicate dishes, particularly white fish are the winners here - imagine it as both the squeeze of lemon and the white wine you would usually reach for. Matching the intensity of the super delicate beer is the hardest part with pairing this beer. Super light goats cheese find affinity with the acidity of the whey while the goatiness provides counterpoint to the vinous barrel character.
