Tempest Brew Co have been experimenting with weird and wonderful styles for years and this, their take on a German Schwarzbier, demonstrates yet again that they’re not afraid of experimention, and who’da thunk that chilli and coffee would make their way into a lager and work?! Not yours truly, that’s for sure! Tempest have ensured that it’s a subtle blend of refreshing dark lager, coffee and a tantalising chilli bite at the end to round it off. Light bodied and refreshing this beer will please many with its adventurous styling.
The Tempest Brew Co. dream started when husband and wife team Annika (of New Zealand) and Gavin (of bonny Scotland) met while working at a brewpub in Canada. They moved to New Zealand and Gavin started brewing with whatever kit he could get his hands on. Inspired by the fresh NZ hops, he created what was their first beer, <a href="https://www.beerhawk.co.uk/tempest-brew-co-long-white-cloud">Long White Cloud</a> which is still being made to this day!
A move back to bonny Scotland and a stint as restaurateurs was the final stage before opening the doors at Tempest Brew Co. And my, did they come out a-swinging! Winning multiple awards across Europe, they’ve become a force to be reckoned with and, with beer this good, we’re not at all surprised! Brewing up a storm to rival The Tempest itself, a Tempest beer is always a good choice!
