SMOKED PORTER | 7% ABV
Brouwerij Dochter van de Korenaar (Baarle Hertog, Belgium) | Galway Bay Brewery (Co. Galway, Ireland)
XENON is a Smoked Porter of 7% ABV, brewed in collaboration with Brouwerij Dochter van de Korenaar of Baarle Hertog and Galway Bay Brewery from the west of Ireland.
It is part of a special six-pack of beers—the Noble Gas Project—created with twelve other breweries to celebrate the third birthday of Siphon Brewing.
Working with Siphon Brewing on the recipe and process beforehand and attending on brewday were Ronald Mengerink of Dochter van de Korenaar and Tom Delaney of Galway Bay.
XENON is a subtly smoked porter with a nutty, chocolate flavour and a full-bodied creaminess.
In the right hands, the six noble gases are a powerful source of light, bringing illumination and colour to people's lives.
We want The Noble Gas Project to shine a light on the values that make us excited about beer: Belgian tradition, international influence, collaborative learning and being unafraid.
Greek for "stranger", Xenon produces a strong and atmospheric light used in movie projectors and searchlights.
XENON will be available to try for the first time, on draught, at the third birthday party of Siphon Brewing and thereafter in limited quantities through the regular partners of the brewery.
