About the Brewery
Northern Alchemy is a microbrewery working out of a converted 30 foot shipping container, lovingly known as The Lab, sited just behind The Cumberland Arms in The Ouseburn area of Newcastle upon Tyne.
A lavender infused mash. Carafa Special 3 was added just before the sparge for the colour. The wort was then inoculated with Lactobacillus derived from unmilled grain. The beer was inspired by a conversation with a friend who wanted a black beer that had sparkles in it. They couldn't find a way to get visual sparkles in so they settled on putting the sparkles on your tongue!
