8 WIRED, LOKOMOTIV MERLOT

Cuisine - - CRAFT BEER CORNER -

The nice brew­ers at 8-Wired Brewery re­leased a whop­per of a beer this year. Lokomotiv is one of those beers that stops you in your tracks. There is noth­ing else you can do but sit down, look over and over the la­bel, smell, sip, smell, sip, think. It is a life-chang­ing beer. An epiphany beer. This stout is aged in Hawke’s Bay merlot bar­rels for a year giv­ing big roasted flavours which are rounded out with rich berry notes. It’s no won­der the Lokomotiv took home the Brewer’s Guild Tro­phy Award 2018 in the woodaged cat­e­gory.
