Binghams do a good selection of stouts including ginger, and vanilla, but the 5% Hot Dog Chilli stout was the standout for us with a real chilli kick to it, as the organising team discovered at Christmas.

With stout not usually being the teams first choice, they decided to give this one a go, and were pleasantly suprised by its fiery taste. It’s probably not one you would usually find at festivals, but feedback in recent years has been to increase variety, so here you go!

We’d definitely suggest you have a decent lip moisturising regime in place before sampling this one but it is well worth it.

Here’s what the Binghams Brewery website says:

Doodle stout accompanied by a warm afterglow of chilli, ideal to warm you up as the nights get colder!
