BrewDog Zephyr

There are a lot of beers on my ‘To Do’ list - a lot of wants. But since I first heard about it last year, one beer has been sitting right up there at the top: BrewDog's Zephyr. And good news came from their blog this morning: they bottled it today!

It’s a 12% Imperial IPA aged for 21 months in 1965 Invergordon whisky casks with masses of fresh strawberries. What a monster of a beer. They’ve also chosen to stick it in champagne bottles where it’ll be bottle conditioned. And the label is stunning too, designed by Johanna Basford (amazing designer!) who worked on the 1st anniversary Paradox.

I cannot wait to get hold of a few of these. And their new improved Hardcore IPA is out now too, with extra Hardcore and 150IBUs! Check it out here. I ordered that last week so it should be here soon! Whoop!


  1. Beautiful label. I think I need to start a importing business to get this stuff into Germany. Gah!

  2. I am a little too excited about this beer. I hope it doesn't disappoint.

    I'm sure it won't... glass half full damn it.
