Fungus Rock is the small limestone islet right at the entrance of Dwejra Bay, on the west coast of Gozo. Its flat top is covered in a little plant, the Malta Fungus, that was treasured by the Knights for its medicinal properties. Fungus Rock is a hoppy stout brewed with a rich blend of dark malts that creates a distinctive aroma of green coffee beans, fresh walnuts, roasted barley, and subtle chocolate notes. Don't be put off by the colour; this beer is surprisingly nimble on the palate thanks to a dry bitter finish and a light acidity.
INGREDIENTS: Water, malted barley, wheat, hops, yeast.
FOOD PAIRINGS: Grilled steaks and sausages, freshly shucked oysters, moules frites, chocolate brownies.
