- Where there’s smoke, there’s flavor. And, now, for the first time ever, you can brew Flue Faker, Camden Town Brewery’s limited-release, seasonal smoked lager, right in your own home!
No passport required to enjoy this perfectly balanced take on a classic Rauchbier, available only in the UK for a few precious weeks out of the year. We’ve worked directly with Camden Town’s brewmaster and founder, Jasper Cuppaidge, to scale his classic recipe especially for homebrewers…right down to the beechwood-smoked malts sourced directly from Bamberg.
More subtle than full-on smoky, Flue Faker is the perfect brew to pair with anything smoked, grilled or cooked in the great outdoors. Featuring just a whiff of wood smoke, alongside sweet notes of fruit and hoppy bitterness, it finishes clean and crisp like a lager should.

Brewmaster’s Tasting Notes:You know how food just tastes better on the grill? The same goes for Flue Faker! An update on the classic Bamberg Rauchbier, this seasonal lager pours a rich amber in color with cream-colored head and a tantalizing whiff of toasty beechwood smoke. Those pleasant smoldering notes continue on the palate, paired with a hint of sweet and smoky bacon, balanced fruitiness and a touch of mild hop bitterness. Harmonious and approachable, even for those who claim not to like smoked beers.
