NEWS AND BREWS - May 2014

April was a busy month...and now it's May. We'll be churning out the new releases this month, and if you happen to be at the right place at the right time, you may cross paths with one of our latest concoctions. 

The Community Hop Ale, that we were "calling all hops" for back in March is now brewed. Big thanks to Alex, Ben, Chris, David, Steven, Josh, Russell, Ivo, Mik, Luke and Helen for their hop contributions, this beer would never exist without them. It's turned out to be an interesting one too, using 100% backyard/garden-grown hops from the Melbourne area this beer carries true terroir and is impossible to brew again due to the completely unique hop combination used. It's one of a kind, but we like it that way. If you'd like to check it out and help us support 3000acres (a local not-for-profit who will take the proceeds of this keg and $2 per pot) through this beer come out to our launch party on May 14th at The Alehouse Project where one of only two kegs of CHA will be on tap that evening. 


Good Beer Week 2014 officially kicks off two days later on May 16th at The Terminus Hotel who will be hosting the opening party for a week of amazing beery festivities. We're happy to say that we've got three beers due to be tapped up throughout the week at The Terminus, so make sure you swing past and have a gander. We'll be sending them a keg each of Chaimera (chai brown ale), Community Hop Ale and A Parisian in Moscow, our yet to be released vanilla and coffee infused Russian imperial stout. The latter is pure liquid decadence...and the perfect companion for a cool winters night.

Last but certainly not least we have a festival beer that has been specially brewed for the GABS festival which runs from May 23-25. It is an imperial IPA brewed with wheat, rye, fig and fennel seeds called Roman Recess and she is a real taste bud slapping head turner. If hops are your thing...and even more hops are really your thing, then this doozy of a brewski might just tickle your fancy.
