Weird Beard Brew Co – Faithless Spreadsheet Ninja
Born kicking, screaming and moshing into the London beer scene in early 2013, Weird Beard Brew Co was founded by two former home brewers – Bryan Spooner and Gregg Irwin – and is based in Hanwell in the west of the city. They love to brew upfront, hop-focused beers alongside modern takes on classic styles. Proudly experimental and happily non- conformist, their varied and full-flavoured range of core and occasional beer is supplemented with a large number of specials and one-offs.

Faithless Spreadsheet Ninja is a black German pilsner with healthy additions of Sorachi Ace, Summit and, to keep things grounded in tradition, Hersbrucker in the kettle. In the glass it’s crisp and clean, with a hoppy edge and the added complexity of chocolate and coffee notes in the finish. Black lager (or Schwarzbier) has been brewed in Germany for hundreds of years. The dark colour comes from the use of particularly dark malts or roasted malt extract. There are many unique varieties of this style, typically brewed in eastern Germany.
Every effort is made to match the brewery recipe precisely, but at times it maybe necessary to change some of the listed ingredients on the recipe to alternatives due to seasonality or availability, but in all cases we do our best replace with something that won’t impact on the overall taste and flavour of the beer.
