BentShovel BXW (BXW)

Brewed in Tandem with our mates from Malt Shovel. This Belgian Extra White Ale is a little stronger than your traditional white beer and complimented with special ingredients: orange peel and coriander.

This collab came about from Rich Watkins, BentSpoke Co Founder, and Chuck Hahn, Malt Shovel Director and Brewmaster, long standing relationship which started back in 1990 when Rich started his brewing career at the Hahn Brewery. The two brewers have always talked about doing a beer together and now just over 30 years later the collaboration is in its fourth year and canned for the second time.
