Seasonal Beer- Coconut Porter

19-12-2013

 For homesick Northern Hemispherites we have a non-traditional Christmas Beer-  Coconut Porter. This came in at number 10 in the People's Choice Award at the 2013 Australasian Beer Spectapular and picked up a silver medal at the 2013 Perth Royal Beer Show.

In the words of Head Brewer Shannon Grigg...

The mission statement on the project was to have a beer first with coconut as a subtlety,  so we made a traditional Porter with Marie Otter malt and East Kent Goldings hop keeping the beer true to it's heritage. Just before kegging we make an addition of 20kg's of shredded coconut ... The coconut is added at this stage for a nice complexity which keeps the beer sessionable ... even though it's at a healthy 6.6%.

Not quite a Weihnachtsbier, but if you shut your eyes you can picture the snow and and cosy fireplace.
Enjoy with a berry orientated desert.
