At the start of 2019, Fierce Beer asked if I fancied making a hot sauce with some of their beer.
There really is only one suitable response to a question like that… "FUCK YEAH!"
As collaborations go, this one pushed me all the way to my limit and then pushed me some more. I tried a lot of recipes and came up with a bunch of ideas. The problem was, I couldn't settle on just one, so I pitched a few and much to my delight, we agreed on three!
In October 2019, Fierce launched "Scary Berry", "Smokin' Sanchez" and "Monzana del Fuego", three sauces built around the three Fierce beers of Very Berry, Dirty Sanchez and Fuego Feroz. If you want to give them a try (and you do), they're available from Fierce bars, the Fierce Beer website and direct from us. They've even spawned a hot wings challenge at the Edinburgh bar using a WHOLE BOTTLE of Scary Berry for 20 chicken wings. Having taken part in that challenge, I now wear the t-shirt with pride.
Craft beer and craft hot sauce are the most perfect of bedfellows.
