The Black Duck Brewery
With the cooling weather our tastes turn to cozy comfort food and warming beverages to ward away the chill. Beer drinkers tend to favour a beer which is richer, with a more complex flavor profile; a slower drinking beer with higher alcohol content. The Indian Runner from Black Duck Brewery ticks all the boxes. Beer connoisseurs should consider this Indian Pale Ale for their winter beer of choice.
The IPA is crafted with clear fresh Camden Haven rainwater and quality Australian malts and hops to create a fuller body beer. The higher alcohol content and increased hops builds the flavour profile and adds the signature bitterness you would expect from an Indian Pale Ale. The depth of flavour is furthered by bottle conditioning, and will only improve with time.
There is nothing more warming than spending time enjoying a complex beer, and this range is sure to impress.
