Bird Brained Barracuda
BIRD BRAINED BARRACUDA
Rum Barrel-Aged Porter
Reel in this silver-sided scourge of the reef; our latest BrewDog Wildcard. Best held onto rather than released, this resonant eight-malt porter has new depths of flavour thanks to being stowed away in rum barrels. Deeply roasty, but with a sudden flash of dark fruits, vanilla, molasses and coconut this is an apex predator you can’t turn your back on.

The Brew Sheet
Alcohol by Volume (a measure of booziness created by the yeast)
Original Gravity (abbreviated OG) is a measure of the fermentable and unfermentable substances in a beer wort before fermentation. Those substances are often the sugars that will be converted to alcohol during the fermentation process.
Beer styles are the categorisation of beer into easily distinguishable types. When doing this we look at history, colour, carbonation, bitterness, ingredients, mouthfeel… the list goes on
Brown, Cara, Carafa, Chocolate, Dark Crystal, Flaked Oats, Munich, Pale
We'd typically use a lightly kilned Base Malt in a beer recipe, then add Speciality malts (sometimes darker, more complex, different flavours) in small quantities to change the overall taste and colour of the beer.

Hops are used in loads of ways, and they can give different characteristics to beer such as Aroma and Bitterness– this is why they rock!
