IWD was the perfect time to get the women who work at Second Sight and our sister pubs involved in the creation and production of the beer – the recipe was based entirely on their ideas.
This style of beer demands a big hop presence – we went for Mosaic, Motueka and Nelson Sauvin.
So who was Hildegard of Bingen? Good question, I’m glad you asked…
Saint Hildegard (as she is also known) was a German Benedictine abbess and polymath active as a writer, composer, philosopher, mystic, visionary, and as a medical writer and practitioner during the High Middle Ages. She catalogued both her theory and practice in two works. The first, Physica, contains nine books that describe the scientific and medicinal properties of various plants, stones, fish, reptiles, and animals. This document is also thought to contain the first recorded reference of the use of hops in beer as a preservative. More info at Wikipedia.
The brilliant artwork was done by Marble’s own designer, and we love it!
