Unique Aspect

For the cherry beer, the cherries were freshly picked for us direct from the farm, then de-stemmed and hand crushed at the brewery. By infusing 1.5 tonnes of whole cherries, it delivered a briskly tart and fruity beer with a hint of almond to finish.
We then set about blending barrels of Modus Operandi with barrels of our cherry beer, ending up with a 75/25 split of Modus Operandi / Cherry. The result is an amalgamation of complexities and layers from the variety of different barrels used, with the cherries bringing a punchy juiciness and a succulence to finish.

Food Pairings

Just like all of our “Beyond” vintages, this blend is divine as a food partner. We always enjoy it with Christmas lunch, but it’s also a perfect partner for other meats, so try with a roast duck where a touch of the beer will also enhance the sauce!
