Dark Side Schwarzbier was brewed inspired by the Star Wars franchise. It’s safe to say that Something Brewing’s brew team are not only brewing masters, but they’re also nerds.
Deth’s Tar is brewed with a host of wonderful specialty malts, flaked oats and oat malt to impart a rich, silky mouthfeel and deep, complex malt flavours and aromas reminiscent of dark baker’s chocolate, fresh brewed coffee and caramel candy.
ABV: 11.4% | IBU: 40

Get ready for a tropical hop hit from beyond the stars! The aroma is chock-full of super-fruity US hop aroma – think juicy pineapple, tart citrus, stone fruit, boiled lollies and bubblegum.
