Coconut & chocolate milk stout infused with our Snowball tea!
Snowball Beer | Basement Beer
That's right Teabirds we have TEA-med up with Bristol based brewery Basement Beer to bring to you our ultimate collaboration: tea and beer! Oh my yes, you heard that right!
We are super excited to have Basement Beer’s latest tea infused beer in the Markers Market! This special edition festive beer infuses our fan fave ‘Snowball’ tea blend to create a coconut and chocolate milk stout!
Made with chocolate and caramel malts, then finished with super delicious snowball tea, cocoa nibs and desiccated coconut! This sounds too good to be true!
Please note that we are unable to ship alcohol outside of the UK.

Basement Beer began as with many good ideas, as a drunken conversation in the pub between its two founders James and Ben. They began brewing in James’s basement, so lo and behold the name ‘basement beer” stuck!
Based at Meriton Foundry in the city of Bristol , home to some incredible beer breweries. So how did tea beer begin? Well, being close friends with our Bristol store and loving the idea of exploring some alternative recipes and collaborations using tea! And with that, Cabana Cooler Pale Ale was born, which infuses our Cococabana Cooler fruit blend, packed full of tropical fruits such as pineapple and papaya. The beer itself is very light, crisp and refreshing, resulting in an ice tea/pale ale combo, perfect for sunny afternoons!
We spoke to Ben, one of the masterminds at Basement Beer on what’s their story and how the idea came about!
Who are Basement Beer?
Basement Beer was founded by James Caddy (owner of the Robin Hood in Bristol) and myself Ben! As with all good ideas, it began with a drunken conversation in the pub!
Why did you settle on the name?
We began brewing in James’s basement, so the name ‘basement beer’ became a pet name for our first few batches of home brew. By the time we came to register the company and started brewing commercially, the name had already stuck!
Where is your brewery?
We are based at Meriton Foundry, a co-working space in St Philips Bristol UK.
What made you decide to delve into tea beers?
I loved the idea of exploring some alternative recipes and collaborations, and tea has an amazingly complex range of flavours to work with.
What is your favorite tea?
I do love an iced Peach and Elderflower Bellini! Oolong’s are delicious!
What is your Bluebird day?
I find spending all day in the kitchen cooking up treats and dishes really relaxing!
Can we look forward to seeing more delicious experiments from you?!
Absolutely! We are currently working on Bird and Blends Rooibos blend Ginger Beer-Beer, Cherry Bakewell cherry red ale and Bonfire Toffee as a Smoked toffee stout ready for the winter and Christmas of course!
