The latest in the Big Ideas series – number 15 is a Belgian-style Dubbel, a light-bodied, but strong dark malty beer.

Simple Things say “The perfect winter beer is:

  • A deep tawny brown colour
  • Big on fruit and spice flavours
  • Somewhere between ‘session’ and ‘ooft’ in strength
  • Bottle conditioned, of course

That’s just scientific fact, right? Step forward then, the Belgian Dubbel. Sweet shop candy, honey, banoffee pie, baklava, and – in this case – plums and a hint of liquorice, thanks to the addition of Iranian Sayer dates in the kettle.

That’s how we’re starting 2021 folks, as we mean to go on – big, tasty beers that demand to be tasted, enjoyed and, ultimately, devoured. ”
