Bacon Beer Brewed By Brains – Brilliant!
The new beer was brewed by Brains’ head brewer, Bill Dobson, after a trip to the Great American Beer Festival (GABF) in Denver.
“I came back from The States wanting to brew my own, and after a few trial and errors with the quantity of bacon I brewed A-PorkPost-Alypse, a double-chocolate and bacon porter. A grist of roast and smoked malts with freshly grilled bacon added to the boil along with cacao nibs gives the beer a smoky flavour alongside the chocolate.”
A-Pork-Alypse will be available on the bar along with three other beers from the Brains Craft Brewery:
- Bragging Rights – brewed to an ancient Welsh style called ‘bragawd’
- Atlantic White – a white IPA
- Dissolution – a Belgian dubbel brewed with Pete Brown as part of the Continental Beer Challenge.
Another experimental brew will also be available on an extremely limited basis of one firkin a day. Low-Hanging Fruit – an easy-drinking dark mild with a wild twist of being soured with Morello cherries.
