“Blimey The Elders” – Torrside
Earlier this year I approached Chris at Torrside with an idea for a beer. I wanted a big beer akin to their Monsters series, an Imperial Stout, not sweet Pastry Stout style but still a crowd-pleaser. I pitched in a few thoughts, one of which was to add elderberry pureé, interestingly nobody at Torrside had tasted elderberries so it seemed a great idea to change that.
The finished beer was then left for several weeks in a Port Pipe (barrel) before being bottled in 750ml swing tops.
Torrside “Blimey The Elders” is exclusive to Otter’s Tears and limited to only 60 bottles.
