We’re all about making hay when the sun shines as they say. So when the hops are green we get them fresh and when the figs are ready, we harvest. And here lies the best of our best – Our Mixed Harvest Pack!
A case jam-packed with some awesome seasonal beers using fresh hops from Rostrevor Hop Farms, just over the river, and figs from the garden right next to the brewery, you can’t get much fresher than that!
The Fig Porter, Two Wet Hopped favorites- the Vic Secret and Galaxy, and the Mabon Doppelbock for good measure.
-Vic Secret & Galaxy 6.0%
We source fresh hops from Rostrevor Hop Farms and make a Single Malt and Single Hop (SMaSH) beer to showcase the delicate flavours of unprocessed green hops.
The grain and recipe are the same for every King River Brewing Wet Hopped beer, with only the steeping addition Green Hops the difference. This allows the taster to really get the difference these hops bring to the party and is a great way for any beer lover to understand the delicate balance of hops and malt that goes into our beer.
There is a rich backbone of 100% Vienna Malt from Voyager Craft Malts in every beer to balance the hop oils and bitterness too.
-Fig Porter 6.2%
This beer is fermented on more than 85 KGs of estate-grown figs and added to a Robust English Porter recipe. Provides a sweet overtone and figgy aroma in this delicious dark ale. Notes of chocolate, coffee and biscuit malt flavours combine with roast and subtle burnt toast. Brewed every year when we harvest the figs it has become a favourite and this year is no exception! Get in whilst you can!
-Mabon Doppelbock 7.8%
Mabon Doppelbock is a lager, with a distinctively strong malty flavour, reminiscent of dark bread. This is a wonderful rich beer, with deep colour. Originally consumed by monks during lent it was considered the source of substance and has the title of “liquid bread”. We play on this by really promoting the bready quality of the malt, which is a layering of lightly kilned malts, in large quantities to produce the deep colour in this beer. Keeping a faith component with this beer, we’ve named it after the Mabon pagan harvest festival of times long gone.
Bready, sweet, slight toffee.
