Tallboy & Moose Blackberry Warpaint & Builder's Brew

Tallboy and Moose

Published September 20, 2018

Just as spring promises to bring some sunnier days to Melbourne, the passage of time promises new beers will be making their way out of Tallboy & Moose’s Preston home.

Among them is Blackberry Warpaint, brewed in collaboration with Whitehart in Melbourne’s CBD. It’s something of an unusual take on a kettle sour as it’s had lactose added to the boil along with a hefty 100 kilograms of blackberries. It makes for a drink you could be forgiven for assuming is a smoothie, both when you pour it and as you raise the glass to your mouth. With there’s plenty of sourness in the beer, the lactose adds a decent level of sweetness too while the mountain of blackberries make themselves known in the flavour department.

They've also tapped Builder’s Brew, a twist on the brewery’s regularly brewed Extra Special Bitter. The addition of tea to the whirlpool adds further floral notes and seems to up the bitterness in a beer that already had plenty of tea and marmalade like characters.
