How about some fruit and nuts in, not with, your beer?
An article in today's Epicure (and written by Willie Simpson) talks about the use of fruits and nuts in beer, specifically mentioning Beechworth Chestnut Lager, Baron's Passionberry Porter and Bright Fruit Lambic. We've had the first two on tap already and I'm trying to secure the third on his recommendation (given I'd had to drive an 8 hour round trip to sample it at the brewery!).
You can read the full article here.
In other news, the Staircase Porter and Coopers Stout (and perhaps one of two others) will be taken off now the warmer months are a-coming. Their replacements are yet to be finalised but, as usual, I always welcome suggestions..
