Unique Aspect

This year the story of Beyond Modus comes from the wood. The barrels that have aged this blend had recently held Bourbon, Islay Whisky, Red Wine and Pedro Ximenez. The combination of characters; tart berries, raisins, sour cherries, vanilla richness, smoky peat and vinous notes make a magnificently complex blend.
What we have is a bit of a detour from previous versions, softer, richer with a delicate sweetness and intoxicating acidity. It’s a red beer of huge character; demanding to be shared! This is an expression of what we do and why we do it; taking some of the best beer we produce, from our best barrels, for the autumn season.

Food Pairings

Beyond Modus has made a name for itself for being the ultimate beer to drink with your Christmas Day dinner! This year is no different and your beautifully roasted turkey will work its wonders, the beer cutting through the fats, adding the sweetness and acidity to bring the meat alive. This years Blend however, offers further complexity with layers of sweet smokiness that amplify your dishes even further!
Let's also not forget this beers versatility with red meat dishes. A BBQ smoked Brisket will complement this beer superbly, with the smoky character from the beer playing with the slow cooked meat.
