ESB (Extra Special Bitter)
ESB’s are known for being malt forward with a slightly elevated hop profile. We leaned into the malt with a base of Marris Otter and Crystal 30 for a hint of caramel. Our secret weapon here is Special B, which imparts a toasty, raisin-like quality to balance out the profile.
The name is a reference to the recent bitterness between the Duchess of Sussex, Meghan Markle and her monarchical in-laws.
