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

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!

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.
