Whisky and beers to try

Flavour Collision

Beer or whisky? Whisky or beer? Why choose when these Deep Creek craft beer and single malt matches work so beautifully together?

Wisdom IPA & Port Charlotte 10

Wisdom IPA and Port Charlotte 10 

A wise old owl of a beer, the Deep Creek Wisdom IPA (RRP $8.99, 440ml) is a masterful flavour bomb of hoppinesss. It pairs up perfectly with the Port Charlotte 10 Year Old (RRP$8.99) and its typical Islay characteristics of heavily peated intensity, and is balanced by a long, dry and leafy finish.

Lotus Pale Ale & Benriach 10

Lotus Pale Ale and BenRiach 10The floral and citrus characters of the Lotus Pale Ale (RRP $22.99, 6 x 330ml), layered over honey and brioche malt, sit nicely beside the green orchard aromas. There are warm toasted oak spice notes in this Speyside Benriach 10 Year Old single malt (RRP $84.99, 700ml), with refreshing hints of citrus.

Misty Miyagi & Jura Journey

Misty Miyagi and Jura JourneyGentle but strong, Misty Miyagi Hazy IPA's tropical flavours of mango, passionfruit and citrus create the perfect foil to the smoky notes of the entry-level Jura Journey Single Malt (RRP $79.99, 700ml), with its citrus and orchard fruit notes.

Brewtiful Haze & Glendronach 12

Brewtiful Haze and GlenDronach 12A New England IPA like Brewtiful Haze (RRP $8.99, 440ml), with its juicy bomb, bursting with tropical aromas, needs something rich to sit alongside it. Enter The Glendronach Original Aged 12 Years (RRP $99.99, 700ml), with its vanilla and ginger nose and oak and sherry palate.
