Fremantle brewery Little Creatures has created a dark beer for the winter ahead, launching the Little Creatures Winter Stout.

The limited edition seasonal beer refines the Little Creatures' stout recipe for a dark beer, and follows the release of its Norfolk PineApple Pale Ale, as well as the East Side Pale Ale, which explored the Eastern culture with aromatic Cashmere hops and Osmanthus Fragrans tea.

Little Creatures Fremantle head brewer Russ Gosling said the company is always experimenting to perfect brews, as well as creating new beers.

“We want people to take a sip and feel like they’re in a cosy London pub by a roaring fire,” Gosling says.

“So, we’ve gone hoppier and amped up our signature Fuggle hops along with US Loral to get that noble, earthy, dark fruit quality with chocolate and roast to create a balanced, smooth stout.”

Little Creatures Winter Stout is available on tap at select venues nationally and in store from retailers around the country for RRP $64.99/24-case.
