      Vienna Red (Old Chimneys)

      This beer has been collaboratively brewed with Alan from Old Chimneys Brewery. Years of brewing expertise with a strong focus on malt and grain has been brought to this beer, exploring the flavours that Vienna Malt and Crystal can impart in a beer. With very little hop addition, this beer is full and rich in aroma, flavour and body, with smooth flavours of roasted malts and caramel.

    • SMASH Vienna + Wolf

      4.0
      ABV

      Medium Beer

      SMASH Vienna + Wolf

      For this one we have used 100% Vienna as our single malt - not a variety but a malt style, often found in German dark lagers and Bocks. Locally grown, then locally lightly kilned, Vienna makes for a golden colour, with good body and a malty, toasted biscuit backbone.
      Then we've added Styrian Wolf hops, one of the latest hops to be developed by the Slovenian Institute of Hop Research. We find they create an orange aroma, with a gently spicy and resinous, deep finish.

      Style: Bitter
      ABV: 4.0
