Now pouring at Black Dog


Brewed in collaboration with Havana Coffee Works and Wellington Chocolate Factory, this stout is the coming together of three Wellington's favourite goods - beer, coffee & chocolate. Smooth and creamy with a massive chocolate & coffee hit and softened with a creamy stout, BEAN ME UP will be sure to hit the spot! Best drunk slightly warmer than straight out of the tap, this beer will benefit from being left to warm up slightly before drinking - plan ahead and order another one before you've finished your previous pint.

Munchen mag dich

Means " Munich loves you" and is that city's official motto. This beer is a malt driven Bavarian dark lager, a style know as Munich Dunkel. It's very popular in their beer halls and hopefully here too.

The beer has plenty of lovely malt character to keep it interesting but at the same time is very easy to drink, the Germans consume from those 1 Litre glasses for a reason! As one of our lower alcohol beers the German beer drinking songs should go well into the night.

This recipe is based on one from Charles Papazian who had a profound influence on the American beer scene and by extension the world. it was also the recipe of one of the first all grain home brews the brewers ever produced, it went down well then and it still does!
