Funky farmhouse smells abound! There’s wet straw, old leather, barnyard earth, white grapes, and fresh cut grass.


The flavour leans heavily on the perfume you’d expect from a funky beer like this, tasting of flowers and minerals. There’s a muddled fruit flavour that’s hard to pin down that mixes with the vinous quality of the dry, white grapes. The funk is actually lower than you might expect, letting the other subtle tastes come through. Finishes up fast with a smooth mouthfeel and leaves behind a bit of the grapes.


Get the cheese board out and go to town, but aim on the softer side with Brie and Camembert.


Pours a pale yellow colour with a clear body and medium carbonation. A frothy head of white foam bursts forth from the can.

Brian Strumke heard the first rumblings of craft brewing in the basement of his Baltimore rental in 2010 and it would take a few years before the sound and taste of that name was known beyond one man. Originally invented to be a roaming craft idea that relied on the help of contract brewers and good friends, Strumke made beer around the world for close to a decade. After 10 years of roaming and brewing, Stillwater Artisanal has taken up a permanent address in the South West of Washington, where beers can be thrown at Seattle and Portland with equal ease. But despite finally settling down, Strumke is determined to maintain the diversity that Stillwater produces, as a reflection of the journeys he’s taken and still plans to take with our taste buds. Shoegaze has been called “distorted” because it fits the bill of heavy prog-rock piped through a broken tube amp. It’s funky and weird, taking turns you aren’t expecting. Wild fermented and dry-hopped to move and shake. Serves well at 8°C and you should try it soon.
