100th Brew Celebration
To celebrate our 100th batch we wanted to do something to highlight one of our favourite core beers. Over the last year or so we have brewed a few stouts, Caribbean Chocolate Cake being the latest, but with this we wanted to take an existing beer and give it a shot in the arm. More Coffee, added cacao nibs, a huge helping of vanilla as well as an increase in alcohol to 9.8% takes Broken Dream to Shattered Dream. This was a big beer to brew and to get the quantity we wanted, it ended up being a double batch, but its worth it. It should be shortly winging its way into the various markets in keg, a few casks and 330ml bottles. And with 800L of it transferred to Banyuls, Bourbon and Brandy for aging will make Shattered Dream a two part enjoyment.
