Wild Feijoa - 6.3% 500ml Bottle

A pale sour beer, aged for up to 2 years in wine barrels and then another year on fresh, local and organic feijoas from Helen and Peter at Quinta Feijoas who have supplied the fruit for the last 6 years.

Tour Des Flandres - 6.2% 500ml Bottle

This complex red sour beer has been brewed in the traditional style of West Flanders, Belgium. Aged in large oak Foeders for 3 years, a collection of wild yeast and bacteria go to work, slowly transforming the beer. The result is a unique beer with flavours of plum, prunes and red wine, layered on top of a mouth puckering sourness and dry oak finish.

Hell of The North - 11% 500ml Bottle

This complex brown sour beer was inspired by the traditional Oud Bruin styles of West Flanders, Belgium. Aged in a single large oak foudre (vat) for 5 Years, a collection of wild yeast and bacteria go to work, slowly transforming the beer.
The result is a unique beer, with a chocolatey-malt base mixed with sherry, leather, tobacco and a hint of smoke. Lactic acid bacteria add a distinct tartness, and Brettanomyces provide that classic wild funk.
