Like Theseus with his ball of thread in the Minotaur's Lair, Banksy, a prolific junk mail deliverer or a rabbit with an insatiable appetite and particularly overactive digestive system, Stu from the Yeastie Boys rarely goes anywhere without leaving evidence of his visit. A collaborator (or "spooner" as he prefers) par excellence, his latest Aussie deposit took place in the loving arms of the Young Henrys brew team. There, he hooked up with long time friend and new head brewer Sam Fí¼ss and Young Henrys founder Richard Adamson to create a beer that was once to have been called the Turgid Miasma of Existence but has since been renamed My Coffee Is Cactus. It's a Cascara Agave Stout clocking in around 8.5 percent, with Cascara being the skins from coffee and something that Stu had always wanted to use in a brew. Said skins were sourced from Toby's Estate, who plundered their own plantation in Panama, then used in a beer whose original name was inspired by Richard and Stu's mutual love of the Celibate Rifles, whose lead singer is a Zen Buddhist. It's on tap at the brewery and some will be heading to next month's Beervana festival too.
