When Orpheus was a child, the god Apollo gifted him a golden lyre and taught him to play it whilst his mother, the muse Calliope, taught him to write entrancing lyrics. With his musical talents Orpheus could charm even the rocks and stones. He used his lyre in a forlorn attempt to rescue his wife Eurydice from the underworld and was the harpist and companion of Jason and the Argonauts whom he saved from the Sirens with his beautiful music. When Orpheus finally passed away his Lyre was hurled into a river. Zeus, ruler of the gods, sent an eagle to retrieve the lyre and placed it in the sky where it sits to this day as the constellation Lyra.

Lyra is a Black Forest Gateau Baltic Porter. Brewed in collaboration with Citizen using rescued Central Otago cherries, rich Dutch cocoa and Tongan vanilla. Smooth and rich with layered notes of roasty dark chocolate and subtle cherry, with toffee and biscuit malt flavours supporting from a complex base of 6 different malts. Fermented slowly with a lager yeast then conditioned for 6 weeks for a smooth body and a clean, moreish finish.

Lyra is delicious, rich and warm without being heavy or cloying. It makes me think of the Danish word ‘hygge’ - contentment and conviviality, comfort and warmth. I love it.
