June New Releases

June New Releases

We're finishing June with some hustle, not letting Winter slow us down. Three new releases in as many weeks sees a nice mix of beers to enjoy! Below are the three releases, a little bit about them and importantly - where you can get them! 

 

Silent Knight Porter

Our biggest release of the three, Silent Knight Porter,  will be in cans and pouring nationally and we're pumped!  

SilentKnightNew.jpg

 

Silent Knight Porter has been brewed since day one, the recipe has remained the same and it's picked up some serious silverware along the way. Needless to say at this time of year, we've had a load of requests to make it national and to put it in our tinnies. So we thought why not! It's our favourite as well. Brewed with luscious chocolate and roast, this porter is perfect for this time of year as it's got some decent body to it and slips down a treat. Part of the Black Label Series, the first of three, we'll have two more black beers to get excited by in due course.

Yeast Coast IPA

    We're stoked to have brewed this year's Yeast Coast IPA, with Fixation Brewing and Wheaty Brewing Corps and what we're calling our representation of friendship through beer!   Brewed in Mona Vale, Adelaide and Byron Bay, the tradition doesn't move away from the well-loved formal of East Coast Inspired Hazy IPAs. What began as a small collab a couple of years ago at the Wehaty - has snowballed into a tradition that we all look forward to. This year's brew has a healthy amount of Amarillo, Simcoe, El Dorado & Citra balanced with Pale, Flaked wheat & oats. This leaves a very fruity, full bodied Unfiltered IPA with a crisp Pineapple and Mango flavour.   We'll be launching at the Sydney Beer & BBQ on Friday 29th as well as pouring at Modus HQ with Cans to takeaway.   For those in Vic, we will be co-hosting with Fixation at the Carwyn Cellars on Friday 29th - that will be the Silent Knight launch as well. Rude not to.  In Adelaide Jade will be hosting an IPA three way with the three beers side by side and of course we'll be pouring at Beer & BBQ Adelaide.      Confirmed Stockists TBC

Moon Tan Stout

Launched for BrewCon 2018, Moon Tan Stout is our collaboration with Gladfield Speciality Malts. 

 

MoonTan.jpg

Launched for BrewCon 2018, Moon Tan Stout is our collaboration with Gladfield Speciality Malts. We couldn't wait to get our hands on Gladfield's latest speciality Malt - Eclipse Wheat; the malt give the stout some serious blackness with a luscious, silky smoothness. 

Moon Tan is in cans and pouring throughout the conference, with the delegates and judges welcome drinks kicking things off. If you're heading to BrewCon you'll be able to find them at Gladfield's trade stand.

To find it on tap head to the Royal Albert and The Woolpack Redfern.

Awards & Acknowledgements

We are massively stoked and humbled to have picked up 5 Golds for 3 of our Core Range Beers at the prestigious AIBA's - Australian International Beer Awards, the largest annual beer comp in the work. We work our socks off year round to make these brews, getting them to an international quality standard and of course enjoyed by Modus fans around the country. To get Golds is a great acknowledgment! Thanks to all the judges for your time and a big congrats to the Aussie Craft Beer Industry - there are some mighty fine beers our there! 

AIBA.jpg

 

We were also chuffed to see Former Tenant and Future Factory get recognised as 2nd and 8th Beers in Australia from Beer Cartel's number crunching.

Beers at the Brewery

7516801856_IMG_0775.jpg

We have a whopping Seven limited release beers on tap at the brewery - Blackberry Hopcakes Milkshake IPA, Showstopper, Best Before Yesterday NEIPA, Olsen's Kitchen Samoan IPA, Dream Weaver and our latest IP Series an Unfiltered IPA #Gainz launching 25th May plus Vanilla Mocha Stout coming back on. With TWO Double Dry Hopped versions of our Pale Ale coming out 1st June. Most of these beers are super limited and brewery is the only place to get them! 

Olsen's Kitchen- Samoan IPA

Here at Modus we have been beating the drum for fresh ingredients, cold storage and preservative free beers. We know how to look after our beers so that the end product is a full flavoured beer that we can all enjoy. What we are less known for is our food and the fresh ingredients coming out of the kitchen here at the brew pub. Well that's about to change as we've got a new series where Chef-meets-Brewer for our Olsen's Kitchen Range. Inspired by Olsen, our Head Chef's incredible taste palate and his way of bringing his Samoan heritage into the kitchen. We've brewed  a Samoan IPA that uses ingredients that remind Olsen of home. So take a 6.1% IPA Brewed with Galaxy, El Dorado, and Motueka and ad some Lactose, Coconut Cream, a bucket full of Limes and a giant sack full of Habanero Peppers. You're left with a super smooth and easy drinking IPA - you need to try this!

#GainZ UNFILTERED IPA

7516801856_IMG_0791 copy.jpg

For this beer we gave Campervan (our last IP beer) a few hundred extra kilos of malt and hops and told it to do squats until it was taking #selfies in every mirror it walked by. #Gainz is a #takenoprisoners tropical roundhouse kick to the face that won’t skip a set on flavour just because its the fucking weekend #noexcuses.  
Malt: Cologne malt and Flaked Oats
Hops: El Dorado, Citra and Mosaic

In Cans and Kegs from 25th May. Stockists to be updated.

BEST BEFORE yESTERDAY neipa

 

 

Double Dry Hopped Pale

4.PaleAle.jpg

We have TWO Double Dry Hopped Pale Ales. Our classic and beloved Modus Pale Ale received extra Royal treatment when we decided to double the normal dry hop amount of Simcoe. The result is a much danker, piney-er and citrusy-er Modus Pale! Instant Classic! The second, we decided to swap out the Simcoe and dry hop with our other favourite hop, Mosaic (!) Resulting in an insanely citrusy affair! It's like biting into a hop flavoured grapefruit (in all the right ways) 

Released 1st June. Stockists to be confirmed.

 

 

 

Good Beer Week

Good Beer Week

Not long to go until one of the best week's in the Beer Calendar kicks off. We're the Official Brewery this year and so we'll be getting amongst it and involved in a load of events, it's going to be a ripper!

We didn't wanna do any half measures and so we've brewed a cracker of a beer especially for the festival. Vanilla Mocha Stout is a deep and rich Stout with layers of dark chocolate. We approached Axil Coffee Co in Hawthorn to lend their coffee expertise and they threw 15kg of the finest coffee at us, this is a serious brew. Throw in rich dark chocolate and a giant sack-full of vanilla and we have a Stout that we're excited to unveil just before Good Beer Week. Coming in at a tasty 6.8%. We'll be pouring at Beer Deluxe Hawthorn on the 27th April together with one of the few kegs of Dream Weaver Unfiltered IPA. Full stockists below.

SUM.O RISING. Monday 14th May 6pm - 9pm

Screen Shot 2018-04-26 at 2.03.56 pm.png

Limber up at The Rainbow with some of our fresh tasty beers, including Vanilla Mocha Stout, have a yarn and get your Sumo on with the Modus Crew. This is one for the Good Times list!

Holes N Hops, Albert Park Golf Course, 18th May 12.30-6pm

Holes n Hops.png

One of our favourite events, Holes N Hops is back for Good Beer Week following the resounding success of last year - if you were there you'd know!

NSW Pint of Origin at the Rainbow

If you miss our event on the Monday, we'll be at The Rainbow Hotel all week with the New South Wales Pint of Origin.

Merch

Screen Shot 2018-04-26 at 2.01.08 pm.png

We'll be selling our limited edition Merch especially for the event. You'll see this is some pretty amazing stuff, having worked with Kentaro Yoshida an awesome  local illustrator in Manly here on the Northern Beaches. He's given the flavour of Mona Vale and tailored it for this Good Beer Week Vic Only Stout. We love his work and will look to collaborate more in the future. For now you'd can grab some T-Shirts, Screen Prints and Stubby Holders. You can pick them up during Good Beer Week or online from 27th.  Hurry mates as these things won't be sticking around!
