We're delighted to welcome back Pointy Shoes, a limited edition Imperial Stout from the gang at Wicklow Wolf which was first released in 2019 to celebrate their 5th birthday. The 2020 release has been aged in ex-Scotch Bourbon barrels for 12 months and marks well of course their 6th birthday! Think delicious notes of vanilla, coffee and chocolate — the latter two coming from the malt bill!
The name is a great story on its own and refers to the two founders of the brewery — Quincey and Simon — meeting their landlord for the first time to secure a premises for the brewery. Simon arrived early to the meeting with the landlord, whom said if your business partner arrives with 'Pointy Shoes' you can forget it. Thankfully, Quincey after years in the corporate drinks world had long given up wearing suits and pointy shoes...a phrase which has helped shape the success of Wicklow Wolf until present day.
