Unique Aspect

With a recipe developed over 6 months, 1500Km and 2 languages; November saw Aleš trek over from Prague with Budvar’s yeast, malt and Saaz leaf hops. Combining our ingredients, we brewed 2 beers with 2 yeasts; one with the Wild beer house ale Yeast and the other with Budvar’s.

At the beginning of November, our friends from Budvar paid us a visit and bought ingredients with them to brew up their first ever collaboration in over 120 years of brewing! We made 2 different beers from the same recipe and ingredients by using 2 different yeasts and fermentation: one bottom, the other top. After fermentation, we blended our two creations together and matured for time and contemplation.

Food Pairings

The rich toasty flavours partner perfectly with a hearty winter stew or braised beef pie. Budvar’s iconic Saaz hops bring a beautifully satisfying but balanced bitterness that cuts through these dishes.

For a quick pair – try a stone-fired pizza with Ndjula sausage topping to add warming spice that accentuates with the hop bitterness.
