WATCH HOW WE MADE A BLACK LAGER

5.0% | VEGAN | COLLABORATION WITH LEED'S TARTARUS BEERS

Brewed with Tartarus for Collabageddon 2023. Their name refers to the infernal regions of ancient Greek mythology. The name was used for the deepest region of the world, the lower of the underworld, which inspired us to brew this dark, Black Lager. We have added our modern Moonwake twist to this continental style by using our beloved Solero hops to give this rich lager a lightly tropical, fruit edge. 

WHAT IS A BLACK LAGER?


A Black Lager is brewed with the same lager yeast you are used to seeing in your golden, straw-coloured lagers - the difference is in the malt. For a dark lager or a Black Lager darker, more roasted malts are used to give the beer a darker colour and some rich, dark fruit flavours.


Traditionally called a Schwarzbier in Germany, Black Lager was a style our head brewer Vinny has always wanted to brew and Collabageddon was the perfect excuse.


If you are ever in Germany…or spot it in the UK…we were excited to have a keg pouring at our first Lunarpalooza beer festival in Leith back in July 2023.

BREWED FOR ELUSIVE BREW'S COLLABAGEDDON 2023
