Wineybeest 2020

Imperial Stout + Wine Barrels + Time

Introducing the 2020 iteration of Wineybeest! 

This beer has been aged in Burgundy Pinot Noir barrels for at least 12 months. The resulting beer has all the rich chocolate characters of Wildebeest but with a delicious vinous red wine acidity that adds layers of complexity to the finished beer. Affectionately dubbed ‘Last of the Rum & Wine’, the 2020 blend includes a beautiful rum barrel and a couple of longer aged red wine barrels as well, to give the blend the balance and layers of flavour we are looking for. This has a long, rich & elegant imperial stout character with a pronounced red berry acidity.

Available in 750ml bottle

Unique Aspect

This year, a small percentage of the blend is a beer we call Imps and Goblins. It is a robust, chocolatey and bitter imperial stout that we brew purely for barrel ageing and blending into other beers. This chocolatey character and sweetness from rum barrels became the perfect addition to Wineybeest 2020.

Food Pairings

The complexity of Wineybeest means that it works really well with simple flavours. Dark chocolate tart will bring all the vinous fruit character to the fore. Going with a mixed berry fool flips this on its head and brings all the decadent chocolate and coffee notes out of the beer.
