Fixed Wheel’s ‘Blackheath Stout’
Fixed Wheel Brewery has scooped gold in CAMRA’s Champion Winter Beer of Britain competition with ‘Blackheath Stout’, a 5% ABV stout packed with malts, fruits and hops.
Following more than a year of local tasting panels and regional heats, ‘Blackheath Stout’ was named overall champion, with beer writer Roger Protz describing it as “a very fine example of a stout.”
Available all year in cask and keg, ‘Blackheath’ is a full-bodied fruity stout dedicated to the home of Fixed Wheel’s Blackheath brewery. It is brewed with New Zealand and English hops to give an oaky bitterness and dark fruits finish.
