Go on, do it if you haven't already

We're just about to release a very big beer. It's a triple imperial stout with lots of stuff in it. It's full of beans, just to give you a clue, three different types in fact. It's 11% and black. You wouldn't neck it very fast, it will be seriously expensive for one thing. Also, you wouldn't drink much of it because of the intense flavours. It is unlikely to cause major drunken behaviour mainly because it is aimed at beer geeks rather than tramps.

There will be several events, including twissup, where it will show up.

However, it will be a little more expensive than it needs to be because the Government have put a High Strength Beer Duty on it. Sadly we didn't get it into bottles, keg and cask quite quick enough so couldn't pay up the duty for last month, which was the last chance to move beer out of "duty suspense" before the new tax comes in.





There is an e-pertition that is asking the Government to consider reversing this tax. Yes, it might be true, as Jeff Pickthall points out, that we are unlikely to get the tax revoked, but if we don't make our voices heard then beer duty is going to keep on increasing.

If you haven't read and signed this e-petition then you need to read more beer blogs, I must be the last of the beer bloggers to have posted about this.

If you'd like to get hold of this beer as soon as it is released you could do worse than apply to be a beta tester for our shop.

Some tramps are better behaved than you think, just as some beer geeks should be a little better behaved than they should too, remember...

Now I'm wondering what the third kind of bean is. Cannellini?

Sounds an interesting beer, have one of your barley wine's at here but trying to leave it for the suggested aging somehow doubt it will last past xmas.

Filled in the petition and retweeted.

I've now posted the petition on my own blog, giving additional reasons
why we all should sign, whether or not we drink beers of such strength.
