We have a great bunch of big new beers coming out for Advent. First up is this one-of-a-kind Vanilla and Blackberry Ice Cream Beer. This is a three-way collaboration with our brewing partners at Missing Link Brewery, as well as Becky the fabulous Garden Chef, whose kitchen gardens are right next door to the Brew Shed on the Chiddinglye Farm.
Becky had a whole load of freshly picked blackberries that needed using, so we took on the challenge to brew something from scratch that would do justice to the massive fruit flavours on offer. Using a wheat base along with generous amounts of lactose and vanilla, we were able to conjure up an insanely rich and creamy body for this silky, milky beer. We hopped it up with classic Bramling Cross as well as Sorachi Ace for some herby fruity goodness.
The result? A beer unlike anything we've ever tasted before. Think blackberry ice cream meets cream soda with a gorgeously smooth hoppy finish. Coming in at only 4%, this is a sessionable beer that goes down an absolute treat. A genuine one-off, so grab it while you can!
