8 Wired Brewing
Formerly brewed at Renaissance Brewing
Warkworth, New Zealand
The beer you hold in your hands is the result of years of practise and refinement. I have brewed it every year since I started homebrewing, and it was one of the first beers I ever brewed. In fact before the mere thought of 8 Wired was conceived. I always knew that one day I would brew this beer commercially.
Every year the Sultan has been different, but it is always Belgian inspired, of course with a large dose of sultanas.
This bottle contains the fifth version of the Sultan. I finally decided to base it on a Belgian style Quadrupel. The sultanas are more present than before, and it is brewed with a hefty dose of pilsner malt, Belgian specialty malts, dark candy sugar and a funky yeast strain.
Experience and enjoy it now, or mature it for years to come. I can’t personally guarantee it, but I bet that it will get better with time.
