Sweetree Honey in Good George Stout

Written by Stephanie on August 18th, 2017.      0 comments

Duck Island Stout-804Local beer brewing company, Good George, have collaborated with local Duck Island Ice Cream company to craft their 'Blackberry, Sage & Honey Cream Stout'.  But Duck Island isn't the only local ingredient used, Sweetree Kirikiriroa (Hamilton City) honey is also included! We're pretty excited about it!

It's beer inspired by a popular ice cream and there will be an ice cream available infused with the beer!

It is smooth, rich and roasty with a hint of sage and lingering berry flavour.  One review said '440ml can Dark red pour with creamy head. Roasted malt aroma with slight chocolate and berry notes. Mild bitterness. Roasted malt taste with mixed herb/sage follow-through. Also slight chocolate note and smooth finish. Don’t get any berry or honey notes.'
