From the 4 Pines Brewing Co. the ‘Black Box’ tells the story of the blackest of tipples and the tales of madness behind them.

The brewers at 4 Pines have held up a light to the murky history of these ales and revealed all. When the customers hold up the Black Box bottles to the light, they too can reveal all – the labels were printed with spot varnish on matt black stock. The curious will be rewarded with millennia of brewing history when light falls across the varnished copy and designs. From darkness comes enlightenment…with only a single gold foil flame lighting the way.

What’s Unique?
A completely black bottle and box to reflect the black beers within. The only colour being the light from the illustration on the label.
