Magical Mystery Pour #1: Spontanbasil

Magical Mystery Pour logo.Throughout this year we’re going to make an effort to drink some more unusual beers alongside our usual diet of standards from St Austell, Penzance Brewing Co, Anchor, Westmalle, and so on.

Dina, AKA @msswiggy, always seems to be hav­ing great fun explor­ing the weird out­er reach­es of the world of beer, like this:

So she was the first per­son we approached to give us a drink­ing list, stip­u­lat­ing that:

  • It should con­tain five or six beers.
  • All of which should be avail­able from the same sup­pli­er.
  • At a cost of around £40 max­i­mum for the lot.

First up, she rec­om­mend­ed Spon­tan­basil, a col­lab­o­ra­tion between Lin­de­mans (Bel­gium) and Mikkeller (Den­mark), a lam­bic beer made with fresh basil leaves. It cost (brace your­selves) £13.50 for a 750ml bot­tle and its ABV is 6%.
