An eternity in the forest, standing in the place where you were born. Beneath the ground unseen fingers touch, sharing food, love, knowledge. Nobody sees, nobody knows exactly how much life exists. Above ground your branches like long arms fold over a human being. He seeks shelter, you provide him with food. He takes what you can give, transforms it into something new. Twigs snap beneath his feet, together you speak the language of wood.
Bast is a woodsy, mossy beer with birch bark, pine and spruce tips and sloe branches with blossoms. Dark, mildly sour, a hint of liquorice, lots of natural flavours. Aged on oak for 11 months, this beer has developed rich, warm notes and a beautiful complexity with a long, earthy finish. Bast is a collab with our friend Roald Sooijs.
