Endangered Species no. 40, Pointy Shoes 2023 is now available! First released in 2019 to mark their 5th Birthday. Pointy Shoes 2023, a Bourbon Barrel Aged Imperial Stout, aged in Bourbon barrels for 12 months, was brewed to celebrate Wicklow Wolf’s 9th birthday. Expect smooth bourbon notes of dark chocolate, roast coffee, dark fruit and vanilla , complimented with coffee and chocolate from the malt bill and a hint of smoked oak.
The name Pointy Shoes comes from back in 2014 when Quincey and Simon made the decision to make their dreams a reality and open Wicklow Wolf they searched for a building that they could move into and call it the home of Wicklow Wolf. A former bakery in the heart of Bray ticked all the right boxes. Simon set up a meeting to meet the landlord to secure the premises. Uncharacteristically for Simon, he was early to the meeting and the landlord said that if your business partner turns up in ‘Pointy Shoes’ you both can forget it. Luckily, Quincey worked in the big corporate drinks world and on leaving he vowed never to wear a suit again and with them pointy shoes. It was that moment and that phrase that helped shape what the two lads wanted to build – an independent brewery without any hints of ‘pointy shoes’ and what they stand for. 9 years on, still no pointy shoes.
