Brendan Varis (Feral Brewing) and Richard Watkins (Wig &Pen) teamed up in Canberra to produce the collaborative beer, which they have named Pig Pen. An experimental brew, the pair have called the beer a ‘free range ale’. Fittingly, the Ale contains ingredients sourced from around the globe, including malt from the UK, wild and conventional yeast from Belgium and the US, and Australian hops. Limited

Tap at Feral Brewery. Yellow hazy pour with a small white head which quickly disappears. Nose is quite vinegary with some pepper notes and ’off’ yeast. Taste is very light with spice and pepper notes. A sour acidic taste follows. A little bit earthy too. A very sessionable beer. Pretty solid

maneliquor (3483) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - JUL 4, 2013
Tap at Feral Brewery. Pours hazy yellow with a small white head which quickly disappears leaving some stickiness around the glass. Not an overly complex nose to this one. Very vinegary, with some pepperness and musky yeast. Vinegar is big on the nose. Taste shows some light, spiced and peppery notes followed by a touch of acidity. Slightly vinous notes to it and really quite earthy. Drinks quite cleanly and becomes very sessionable as you get through it. Not amazing but not too bad
