This is a beer for anyone who’s ever asked or been asked for a pony. Now you can have your share in Catherine’s pony. Who’s Catherine? It’s irrelevant. A DIY punk pony that you can have as many of as you like, stabling them in your glass and toasting to their success. Careful, this delectable smoked imperial porter of a pony can kick! With a nose like goose berries and blueberries, stuffed with coffee, covered in chocolate and toasted on a campfire by the beach, Catherine’s Pony is robust and imposing with a herculean mouthfeel. Rich and smooth it grows some teeth as the roasted smoky flavours battle for prominence over the assertive bitterness. A satisfying hoppiness rounds off the palete, leaving you thirsty for the next mouthful. Saddle up, sit back and enjoy this punk rock pony collaboration with London’s own Beavertown Brewery.
