Brewed for us by our friends at Tempest Brew Co and a tribute to the much loved TV character, with all dedication and dogged pursuit of justice you might expect. A touch of Prost is a Festbier with a difference. Breaking from the traditional Marzen, this beer is a light and breezy pale ale brewed with oats and wheat to give it a fantastic fluffy head and a lightly sweet, lightly tart complexion. It’s all pine on the nose with some sweet oats and light sourness and, to taste, it delivers on those promises. A delightful session beer, this one will make you feel like the great man himself. Here’s to Oktoberfest with a Touch of Prost!
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!
