Overboard is a dry and refreshing witbier, infused with orange peel and juniper berries.
The combination of wheat and malted barley provide the backbone for this Belgian-style witbier, which is delicately balanced with a combination of cascade and saaz hops.
The addition of curacao orange peel and juniper berries provide subtle hints of citrus, as a nod to the classic Belgian style, while also providing a little extra interest on the palate. It is fermented using a traditional witbier yeast strain. This beer is an excellent accompaniment to most food, in particular fish and spicy food. It is also good with both strong and creamy cheese.
THE STORY BEHIND OVERBOARD
If a Howth fisherman didn’t fancy going to sea after a heavy night’s drinking he would tie a pig to the ship’s mast. With it’s devil-like cloven feet, the sheer mention of the word pig was thought to bring forth gales and storms. If anyone dared to bring bacon on the ship, it was swiftly thrown overboard!
