X ST. ERIKS BRYGGERI THORNBRIDGE HALL BAkEWELL x STOCkHOLM Style: |MPER|AL STOUT ABV: 10% Volume: 500ml When a giant of England crashed head on with a giant of Sweden the results were, quite frankly, delicious.

The answer is not an awful lot, that is until recently. Two fine brewing minds, with their companies based in these two stunning locations, came together in 2013 to create a beerbased bond that we think is just about on the edge of perfection. Thornbrige Hall Imperial Raspberry Stout is the creation and Rob Lovatt of Thronbridge Brewery and Jessica Heinrich of St Eriks Brewery are the collaborators – and boy did they hit the jackpot. THE GOLD CLUB IN THIS SERIES WE EXAMINE THE BEERS THAT WE THINK HAVE TOUCHED PERFECTION. JUST HOW DO THEY DO IT?
