Unique Aspect

In 2013 we experimented with ageing a batch in Cider Brandy barrels, the result was absolutely staggering and Ninkasi Premier Cru was born.

This version has been aged in white wine barrels for 18 months allowing for further development and maturation in the oak. The barrels have complemented the beer beautifully, homogenising the different flavours together and allowing the funky apple character to really shine.

Food Pairings

The intense carbonation and lean body make this beer powerful at cutting through richness and fats.
The higher alcohol also means that it will stand up to some bold flavours whilst it is refined enough to not overpower lighter dishes. White game meat like pigeon, quail, partridge all have enough complexity to compliment the peppery saison yeast.

However, this beer was created with Westcombe Dairy’s 12 month old Cheddar in mind - there’s no better cheese and beer pairing.
