Devil's Peak Vannie HoutDevil's Peak
ORIGIN: South Africa
First brewed in 2012, Vannie Hout was our initial foray into the world of barrel-aged beers. Drawing from the seasonal beers first brewed in the French-speaking region of Belgium some 300 years ago, this farmhouse ale was our attempt at capturing the fresh, effervescent characteristics of the Saison style with the added complexity and nuance that comes with time in previously filled French oak wine barrels. With the addition of Brettanomyces, a wild yeast that adds loads of depth and flavour, we were set to create something really special. The result was award-winning and earned this amazing brew a permanent home in our Afrofunk facility.
With this release, you’ll once again be able to experience a milestone in South African brewing that helped to open a wider world of craft beer to the country.
