Rich Irish and Belgian malts combine to deliver a full, rounded maltiness with notes of candy sugar and stone fruit, coupled with the spiciness of Morrigan 1, our unique wild Irish yeast.
Black Donkey Underworld Rua 500ml Bottle
Black Donkey Underworld Rua Ale
The Underworld series was born out of our quest for adventure, our sense of history, and our respect for tradition.
Before industrialisation, before lab techs in white coats took over the brewing industry, beer was fermented with whatever wild yeasts occurred in and around a brewery. Underworld beers are all fermented exclusively with Morrigan 1, a wild native yeast exclusive to Black Donkey. Harvested from Oweynagat cave, not far from the brewery, and paired with the finest Irish malting barley, Underworld reintroduces unique, local provenance in Irish brewing, formerly eliminated by the absolute market dominance of the multinational beer manufacturers.
Great with hearty dishes, this brew also holds its own with the spiciest foods, Thai, Vietnamese, Mexican and Sichuan. Go ahead turn up the heat. Cloonconra raw milk cheese, Dozio Barr Rua and other full flavour cheeses.
