Dedicated to exploring and pushing the boundaries of what is possible with fermentation, we are on a quest to redefine wild and sour beers, forever. With a purpose-built facility where craft and nature find harmony, we utilize wild yeasts and microbes from our environment and ingredients sourced from all around the world.
This is Hocus Pocus – an amazing 10.1% Imperial Sour Stout, fermented with Scottish raspberries and cocoa nibs, and then aged for twelve months in Speyside Whisky casks.
If you’ve never had a barrel-aged sour stout before (or even if you have) then you’re in for a treat. This first Spirit Barrel release showcases how time spent in oak can truly change a sour for the better and has been directly inspired by the spirit that was previously ensconced in the barrel – in this case, the warming might of Speyside whisky.
Our crew brewed an imperial stout and then dried it out with the magic of Brettanomyces, before inoculating with our house sour culture Cher Ami to load up the bright acidity. The addition of raspberries and cocoa nibs both amplify the dark malts and find harmony with the acidity of the sour culture – and then a year spent inside Speyside casks has given the beer an entirely new outlook, one of warming campfires and a deep, lasting body.
As a limited-edition batch we are making the majority of the stock we have available online – but don’t hang around on Thursday as it will likely go very quickly.
