The Funk Dungeon mixed fermentation project evolved from our love of all things sour, bretted and barrel aged! Each small batch release is carefully selected and blended to create a complex, unique beer. This box contains our two latest Funk Dungeon releases, side by side in our stunning gift box.
Olicana Dry Hopped Heritage Saison – 5%
Barrel aged bretted tart saison, with a base of heritage grain Plumage Archer for a complex malt undertone. Crystal Rye adds a residual spiciness and sweetness. We dry hopped this beer in barrel with one of our favourite new English hops, Olicana, which brings flavours of ripe peaches, mango and a deep herbal character that balances with the oak. Aged for 11 months for a gentle bitterness accompanied with low carbonation to round out the overall finish of the beer.
BA Tea Saison with Cider Lees – 5.4%
Back in 2022 we teamed up with our friends Colleen and James, cider makers at Duckchicken, to combine our house flavours – using their cider lees and some partially fermented tea beer for secondary fermentation in neutral American oak. Their yeasts bring along a distinctly fresh apple skin character, layered with a hint of hibiscus florally and a subtle peachiness. This is balanced by underlying tannins and aged for 19 months giving a soft astringency that rounds out the character of the beer
Both items were a limited release of just 110 bottles.
