Today we welcomed Reece of Donzoko Brewing Company for a brief stint in the brew house! He cast his lager knowledge upon us and we’ve brewed a black lager together! This is a style that North has never tackled before but one that we have been planning for a while!

We’ve used a spread of roasted malts, Vienna and carafe malts as well as Pilsner malt and Mittelfrüh hops; we even had the honour of using Donzoko’s house yeast. We’ve been tasting a few roasty lagers this year and have been reminiscing about our Doppelbock brewed with Thornbridge last year.

Needless to say, we’re very excited to see how this comes out! Keep your eyes peeled folks! 🖤
