Yeastie Boys’ Rex Attitude
New Zealand’s Yeastie Boys, Sam and Stu, is all set to release the Rex Attitude, the world’s first single-malt, peat-smoked golden ale. The use of 100% heavily-peated Scottish distilling malt results in one of the smokiest beers ever released and the world’s first whisky beer.
Unlike most beers made with the peated malt, generally made as scotch ales, Yeastie Boys have made a well-hopped golden ale. Stu said the style was chosen because many highland whiskies have a citrus character, as do Belgian golden ales. The beer uses US Willamette hops which Stu says will introduce a complementary citrus note. The Yeastie Boys have already imported two tonnes of Scottish malt that’s needed specifically for the Rex Attitude.
