8 Wired Batch 2.18

8 Wired New Zealand

From the brewer:

“Batch 2.18 is somewhat a remake of our original ‘Batch 18,’ brewed in 2010, made with dates, jaggery and vanilla bean. Back then we fermented the imperial stout in stainless steel and then aged the beer in American oak barrels. This time we kind of reversed the process and fermented the beer in open oak vats (foedres), then transferred it back into stainless for extended maturation on oak staves and vanilla beans.  It is the most regal of stouts, brewed to commemorate the 18th batch of our new brewery in Warkworth, New Zealand.”
