The Spoonbender series is a celebration of the strange things that happen when weird brewers meet even weirder folk from other industries. In this inaugural Spoonbender series, the Yeastie Boys team up with renegade winemakers Some Young Punks to create beers built around some of the Punks' aged botrytised Viognier. Rather than aging our beer inside their barrel, adding our beer into their wine environment, we've created a candi-sugar with their already fermented (and aged) wine to essentially add their wine into our brewing process.
To drink this wine inside a beer, this fermented beverage within a fermented beverage (or fungus upon fungus), is a welcome surprise… the vines and fields no longer recognise their fruit.
