DESCENT 19 STOCKISTS

We know you are as excited as we are to taste BentSpoke’s birthday beer, Descent 19!

Starting a downhill descent into the unknown requires a level of composure to make it to the bottom in one piece, Descent 19 like its 4 predecessors requires plenty of composure, a little birthday magic and a nice warm fire to get to the bottom of this beer!

The Bending Spokes series celebrates the adventurous spirit of the brewers with one-off, never to be seen again beers.

RIS started its journey when Emperor Peter the Great opened up Czarist Russia to the English in the early 1800s. They needed a beer that wouldn’t freeze on its journey deep into Russia, so they brewed strong stouts at 10% ABV. Higher in alcohol than traditional stouts they named them Russian Imperial Stouts.

Our head brewer, Richard Watkins was the first brewer in Australia to brew a RIS, way back in 1999. BentSpoke Brewing Co has always celebrated its birthday with the release of a RIS in June every year.

For the past nine months, our RIS has aged in American oak bourbon barrels, allowing the vanilla and whisky characters to invade the Russian Imperial Stout. Late in May, our brewers expertly blended it with a fresh RIS, bringing out all the best of its old and new characteristics.

For the first time ever, our exclusive birthday beer will be packaged, making it accessible to customers outside Canberra, and meaning that you can enjoy it from the comfort of your own home.

As this is an extremely limited run, please call ahead to avoid disappointment.
