Bimber Distillery and Brew By Numbers team up for beer release

South London brewery Brew By Numbers has unveiled the first in a series of collaborative releases with Bimber Distillery.

The Imperial Stout, specially brewed to bring forward rich stout flavours and the profile of Bimber single malt whisky, is the first joint release from the companies and is designed to celebrate their shared ethos.

The idea for the collaborative series came from a chance meeting between the drinks makers at Brew By Numbers' taproom in Bermondsey. 

To make the stout, Brew By Numbers' Imperial Stout - with a complex malt bill including chocolate, roast and smoked malt - was left to condition in tank for two months. Post-fermentation, oak chips soaked in Bimber's ex-Bourbon oak cask single malt whisky were added, along with cacao nibs, Madagascan vanilla pods and washed Columbian coffee. Brew by Numbers says this process has resulted in a rich, complex beer with notes of caramel and subtle spice and the distinct profile of Bimber whisky.

Brew By Numbers said: "This collaboration is an incredibly exciting project for us, providing the opportunity to work with one of the finest distilleries in the country."

The Brew By Numbers x Bimber Imperial Stout is available on Brew By Numbers' webshop for UK-wide delivery.
