Twisted Barrel ale are basically our big brother when it comes to brewing. We have been members of their Home Brew Club for a while now and we were enormously grateful for their encouragement and sage advice when we took the plunge commercially. So when they asked us to collaborate on a brew as part of their Coventry Art Space project we didn’t hesitate.
The beer is Satsumatra, a Coffee Orange Sour brewed with Sumatran Orang Utan Coffee, blood orange, and clementine. The gentle sourness really helps to accentuate the fruit whilst the coffee adds intrigue and makes this beer surprisingly drinkable.
The beer is available in 440ml cans which carry a beautiful painting from Luisa Freitas, part of Coventry Artspace – with some of the Orang-Utan illustration painted with coffee!
