Yeastie Boys xeRRex (330ml Bottle)
A celebratorily beer by Yeasty Boys. They said it couldn't be done, that it would be undrinkable and to be fair, many of them still do. . . But we like to do out own thing. This one off batch of Imperial-strength Rex Attitude is a self-indulgent celebration being awarded the Morton Coutts Trophy for innovation BrewNZ 2011 dedicated to all the peat freaks who have let us know how much they enjoy Rex: your love helps us through the hate. . . thank you.
The classic smoked beers hail from Bamberg in Franconia, Germany. These are made using malt that has been smoked over beechwood. The insistent smokiness may be applied to any lager style. In North America, the same technique has been used to make smoked porter. Whiskey malt beers are made using peat-smoked malt.
