Having two medals for our beer developed with Blackwood Brewery confirms our thinking that Chestnut Ale is the beer to drink. We first tasted chestnut ale in a little pub in Corsica and realised that this was one of the products we had to develop.
To have the beer recognized in 2017 in the International Beer Awards in Melbourne against 2,000 other beers from 35 countries and to get a gold blew our minds.
In 2018, the next step was to enter the ale in the WA Beer Awards in Perth where the beer won silver. All credit to the Blackwood Brewery Company in Bridgetown for developing this beer for us using our chestnuts.
It is a full bodied Brown Ale, displaying subtle nutty and toasted characters with English malts and noble hops. The aromas of toffee and caramel combine with the unique roast chestnut flavour to make it a distinctive, luxurious ale to be enjoyed as you would a good red wine, on its own or with fine food such as stroganoff, steak or roaste beef and lamb dishes.
