Little Forker Release: Fire & Freckles - 3.2% Ginger, Smoke & Milk Sugar Belgian Table Beer

Fire & Freckles was a bit of a twist on the Belgian Table Beer style, and came about as a bit of a happy accident. Belgian Table Beers are traditionally quite low in strength - often 1-2% - and imbued characteristic Belgian yeast notes: fruity esters, clove-like phenols and other such aromatics. This Ginger, Smoke & Milk Sugar Belgian Table Beer is 3.2% and (here's where the happy accident takes place) fermented with four different yeast strains. The original yeast added to the brew was a blend of Belgian Trappist High Gravity yeast and Bavarian Wheat Blend, a combination of German Wheat Beer yeasts and an Ale yeast. ...READ MORE

Fork Brewing, Burning Sky Brewing & Wild Beer Co. Collab - Shnoodlepip 6.5% Passionfruit, Pink Peppercorn & Hibiscus Saison

But unlike the original heartache anthem that lends its title to this beer, we ensure there will be all sorts of running to it, and no running from it. ...READ MORE

Fork Brewing & The Grainfather Collab: Three Times the Man Triple Manuka Dubbel Weizenbock

In the apocalyptic aftermath that was post-Beervana, Kelly met up with his old brewing chum from Thornbridge days, James Kemp, of The Grainfather fame, who was in Wellington for a few Beervana guest appearances and other sundry beer collabs, including one with Fork Brewing.  Kelly has previously said that he and JK brew well together, and this resultant collab brew indicates he is not merely paying lip service to his old brew buddy. ...READ MORE

Fork Brewing & Breakside Brewery Collab: ORE India Golden Ale

There's been a bit of a long, anticipated run up to this week's release of ORE, the ostentatiously hoppy 9% India Golden Ale that was the resultant love brew between two spirit brewers.  Brewed way back in the early, heady days of August, when everyone was still bright-eyed and bushy-tailed in the lead up to Beervana, ORE was a collaboration between Fork Brewing and Breakside Brewery as part of Beervana’s Portland Brewers exchange. ...READ MORE
