SOUTHWARK OLD STOUT
An unrivalled hit, Southwark Old Stout’s dark, intense nature, with its ‘in your face’ flavours, reflects the characteristics of the anarchist punk rock movement during 1975 – 80. Punk was full of a vital energy with visionary songs couched in black humour, and offered the promise of liberation. Over time, the key players in this movement and the stories of their rise have become legendary, as indeed has Southwark Old Stout, now a classic occupying an important niche in the Australian beer world.
This stout has a great deal of character, like the greatest names from the punk era, and is both robust and highly drinkable. It is known for its rich concentrated flavours of coffee, deeply roasted malt and dark chocolate. Are you punk enough for the full flavour hit? You don’t have to fake it; there’s no requirement to rail against the establishment to fully appreciate this one-of-a-kind beer, but feel free to raise a Southwark Old Stout to those who have come before you.
