Flue Faker Lager

How do you smoke a beer?

Available in February
Rather than sticking the bottles on a barbecue or hanging them upside down in a shed like salmons, you just need need to get your hands on some smoked malt. We use a little bit of beechwood-smoked pilsner to give Flue Faker a subtle richness, that’s not head-over-a-chimney smoky, but has a whiff of woodsmoke.

No Smoke Without Fire

Smoky beer used to be more commonplace as not everyone had kilns to make their malt, so grain was dried over open fires. Now it’s a bit more unusual, but don’t let that put you off – give the smoke a try.

Bamberg's Best

In Bamberg, where we get our pilsner malt, our friends at Brauerei Spezial smoke grain over beechwood fires to make their famous Rauchbier, and share a little of the good stuff with us each year to make Flue Faker. You could say they’re malty talented.

Sending Smoke Signals

So just how smoky is Flue Faker? If you find full on smoke a bit much, forget smoky bacon crisps and think about how food always tastes a bit better barbecued. That’s the smoky sweet spot where you’ll find Flue Faker – and it tastes pretty good with barbecue too.
