Smokey Oyster Stout brewed with Wapengo Rocks oysters & Sunrise limes 

This is the story of an Orca named Old Tom, who during the early 20th century spent almost four decades helping Sapphire Coast whalers catch baleen whales.
In return, Old Tom and his pod feasted on the lips and tongues of the whalers’ haul, then the Orca’s would leave the rest of the carcass for the whalers, this was known as the ‘Law of the Tongue’.
This relationship was established over centuries with the local indigenous people, the Yuin tribe, who believed the killer whales to be their totem animal and reincarnations of their ancestors. 

An Oyster Stout brewed in collaboration with Wapango Rocks Wild Organic Oysters. 80 dozen oysters harvested by Shane Buckley from Wapengo Rocks were added to the kettle to provide subtle mineral and ocean flavours. Also brewed with Beechwood smoked malt, lactose and Sunrise Limes (a cross between a native lime and a cumquat) from Murray View Organics. Smooth, creamy and full-bodied with a bacon-like smokiness and citrus kick in the tail. Impenetrably dark and beautifully balanced.
