Dream Weaver  Unfiltered IPA Launch

Dream Weaver Unfiltered IPA Launch

We're pretty excited about the release of our second National Limited Release of 2018 - Dream Weaver, Unfiltered IPA. As the name suggests it's hazy but the appearance is one thing, the taste, flavour and aroma are another. Brewed with a Pilsner malt, this IPA has a clean backbone but we've thrown a few hops at it, namely Amarillo, Simcoe, Centennial and Citra. Giving it a tropical and Citrus punch but balancing sweetness that this style sometimes has with a bit of a resinous, pine aftertaste. 

We've spent some time over the last few months working on honing our yeast to compliment the style and we're happy with how this yeast is complimenting and adding to the overall flavour of the beer.

The launch will be staggered over a number of venues to make sure that when you're tasting it, it's as fresh as can be. On 20.4.18, we'll be kicking off at The Royal Albert in Sydney with a Tap Takeover and in Brisbane we'll be at the Ploughman Bar in Alberley Brisbane and the Carrington Bowlo, NSW. We are finalising the packaging to go out to Vic and SA with the rest of our stockists after that. In SA we'll be doing a launch at The Franklin Hotel in Adelaide 27.4.18 and in Vic we're doing a tap takeover including our Good Beer Week Vanilla Mocha Stout at Beer Deluxe Hawthorn 27.4.18. Two cracking beers and so not one to miss. We'll post more about our Good Beer Week activity later in the week. 

We have been getting an increasing amount of requests for Merch for our Limited Releases and so we've listened to you. We'll be releasing T-Shirts and Stubby Holders from 27th April. We approached Brent Smith, a local illustrator represented by the Drawing Arm in Brookvale and he has been amazing at bringing his creative interpretation of the beer. We will be working with more local illustrators moving forward. Beer First but Hand Crafted is important too!

Autumn is here

Autumn is here

With five beers launched in March, it was always going to be hard to top it in April. That's why we're kicking things off at the brew pub with the Showstopper. A New South Wales grown and brewed beer, released especially for the Sydney Royal Easter Show.  Having competed in the Sydney Royal Easter Beer & Cider competition since 2014 we understand it's significance.  The Royal Easter Show is an opportunity to exhibit quality produce from specific areas and be judged against the best. We're still proud that last year we took out the title for Best NSW Beer with Former Tenant Red IPA.

The Showstopper is a crisp, refreshing pale. Brewed with malted barley from the growers in Forbes Western NSW and fresh Cascade hops from Ryfield Hops in Bemboka close to the NSW border. At 3.9% ABV it’s easy drinking craft beer that will appeal to a wide audience. With the Easter Show now over we have managed to squirrel away a few kegs that will only be available at the brewpub with a very limited release from Friday 6th April.

 Vanilla Mocha Stout

Vanilla Mocha Stout

With a cheeky sneak preview of our Vanilla Mocha Stout at the Good Beer Week Gala Showcase, we can't wait to launch it proper. The feedback by the few that tried it has been great and we're working on the launch as we speak. It will be a Victoria only release, in kegs and cans just ahead of the Good Beer Week events. We will post a seperate release purely on our goings on. As the official brewery of the festival, we'll be turning up at Beer Deluxe and a Pint of Origin. We've been working on getting some merch ready for the festival that will be celebrating the Vanilla Mocha Stout. 

 

Another National release. Expect a new Limited Release from us at the end of April. We're going to squeeze in something exciting before the weather turns too cold. Watch this space. 

March Releases

March Releases

Having launched Majestic Leopard with a bang on 2nd March. This month promises to be one of our busiest yet. Thank you for the support shown for the Little Cat's release, we're super stoked with how it turned out and for our largest National Release, it's been getting a great reception. We wanted to brew a sessionable beer that didn't compromise on flavour. We're hoping it's the go to for the last remaining days at the beach.

But that's just the start of March, next up we have our third release in the IP Series - Campervan IPA.  Another fruity, hazy IPA brewed with Citra and Mosaic hops. We've mixed things up with the malt base, we've used a traditional German variety from Weyerman Cologne, part of an innovative initiative with Cryer Malt. The difference is very much in the mouthfeel. Campervan is coming in at 5.8% and pouring at Modus HQ from Friday 9th March. It's going to be packaged that day and so fresh as! Stockist updates to follow.

We're pouring a new Collab beer with Brisbane Brewhouse for Brews Vegas Sunday 11th at Breakfast of Champions. The Beer is a Blackberry Milkshake IPA - Blackberry Hopcakes. Using over 10kgs of Blackberries, some lactose and a serious amount of Mosaic, this is a festival beer to get people frothing. On the hush hush, we've grabbed a few kegs at the brewery and will be on tap this Friday.

We'll be at the Gala Showcase for Good Beer Week in Federation Square, as an official brewery of Good Beer Week, we've thrown a bit of weight behind it and brewed a beer especially for the festival. Giving a sneak peak at the gala. The beer is called Vanilla Mocha Stout and as the name suggests there's some serious, chocolate, coffee and vanilla in this rich Stout. It's brewed with lactose and ends being sweet and creamy. Full details of the launch in April will be posted.

Majestic Leopard

Majestic Leopard

Let us introduce you to our first National Limited Release of 2018 - Majestic Leopard. 

Cats are mysterious creatures, they prowl around neighbourhoods and homes with a knowing feline grace. But there is one cat that has more elegance and style than the rest. This cat looks unassuming but it’s a Majestic Leopard. It transcends lifetimes with it’s true spirit captured within a tiny endearing house cat. Don’t be fooled by it’s appearance; this cat is fierce.

At 5.0 ABV our Majestic Leopard gives off all the qualities of a bigger beer through the use of Mosaic, Eukanot, El Dorado and Vic Secret hops which cause an overfow of pungent peachy, freshly squeezed mandarin and berrylicious bubblegum aromas & flavours, all whilst gracefully slinking in as a small, unassuming package. Take a sip and enjoy a lurid session that takes your soul to new places and transcends lifetimes. 

We'll be releasing this little beer on the 2nd March at the Brewery and at selected venues on the same day. Cans will be leaving the brewery the same time, we'll update stockists next week.
