Siren – Primal Cut – Porter 8.8%
Primal Cut is a high-concept beer inspired by Siren’s sampling of blackcurrant purée. Their head brewer thought it would be ideal for a BBQ sauce, so built a recipe with some smoked malt and coffee (imagine a coffee-rubbed brisket), which is all complemented by the fruity ‘sauce-esque’ high notes.
Porter – 8.8% – 330ml

Brewed by Siren Brewery Who doesn’t like a good story? These folks are sound spinners of quality yarns when it comes to their beers, basing each one around mysterious sirens, luring and teasing the thirsty drinker with names such as Undercurrent, Soundwave, Liquid Mistress and Broken Dream. Siren’s aim is to draw you into their world where the qualities of beer can be approached with just as much care and appreciation as wine, inviting you to act on your curiosity and explore the diverse landscape that is craft beer. Personally, we’re big fans of their philosophy to carefully think through every stage of the process, and that their beer ‘…will be ready when it’s ready, not because it needs to get out the door.’
