Limited Edition 330ml Can – Once it’s gone, it’s gone. 

Collaboration with: BrewDog

Style: Kottbusser Blackcurrant & Heather Honey Kettle Sour

ABV: 6.2%


The brain child of YellowBelly Beer’s Head Brewer, Declan Nixon, and BrewDog‘s Brewing Manager, John Allen, ‘Kottbusser’ is a long forgotten beer style which is now being revived over the course of two brews, a sour iteration at YellowBelly Beer in Wexford Ireland and a non-sour iteration at BrewDog’s Ellon Brewery in Scotland.

Kottbusser is one of many lost or forgotten German ale styles. Like many Northern German styles of the 1800’s, Kottbusser was a sour, similar in acididty to its relative, Berliner Weisse. Historically Kottbusser was brewed with Pilsner malt, wheat, oats and honey.

For the first sour interpretation, our joint brewing team have used Scottish heather honey, Mr. Jeffares Wexford Blackcurrants and have hopped heavily in the whirlpool to create a truly magnificent beer.
