old school beer with a new age twist

'pinkerton' mixed berry saison

Originally brewed in 2019 as a ‘pilot batch’, it was the first Saison ever brewed by head brewer/owner Paul Wakelin at Block ‘N Tackle. Brought back on a large scale in late 2020. This farmhouse style ale features Saison yeast and an addition of 45kgs of strawberries, raspberries and blueberries straight into the fermenter, as well as coriander, and black pepper.

Our mixed berry Saison is named after Allan Pinkerton (Sydney) who was part owner of many of the ships built in the area.


6.3% ABV  / 24 IBU

food match

Great as a nightcap or a dessert beer. The staff here at Block ‘N Tackle think it has a wide variety of foods it can match with, like a summer pavlova or even all the way opposite, like a pepper steak pie!
