Cult craft beer is all about being in the know, being a part of the cult and there’s an exclusive club of films that deserve the label of “cult”, one of the most popular of those though is “The Big Lebowski”!
Jeff Bridges and John Goodman in the cult classic from 1998 litter the screen with amazing quotes, and with a Polish derived name, it seemed the perfect fit for our latest beer, a 5.5% amber brew using Polish hops, Junga and Pulawski. The hops known for their duality of spicy and fruity qualities have been combined with four different malts – Maris Otter Pale Ale, Caramalt, Amber and Crystal – have married together to create something really quite special.
We nearly called the beer, “The Big Pulawski” but found it a bit of a mouthful when speaking to customers on the phone and even more of a problem to spell or expect consumers to pronounce when ordering it at the bar, so we opted for none other than “The Dude” or, uh, His Dudeness, or uh, Duder, or El Duderino if you’re not into the whole brevity thing.
It’s only a small batch brew we’re doing of this one and will be available in cask only to start with, kegs and cans will be later.
Make sure you grab some when you see it!
