There will be no July 1st open day because the brewery was open the previous Sunday for the EOFY sale. Apologies for any inconvenience or disappointment.
End of financial year sale at the brewery this coming Sunday, June 24th from 11 am till 2 pm. Buy one carton, straight or mixed, and get one free. Applies to all beers: Lounge, NIght, Titfer and Smokey Red Ale.
From mid-July 50 litre kegs of Lounge and Titfer will be available for retail sale from the website. Great if you have a kegerator. Will also have complete set ups for for party hire: beer, jockey box/magic box, gas, regulator, keg coupler.
New branded kegs should be arriving this week.
The monthly open day is Sunday June 3 form 11 till 2. For cartons of Lounge, Night and Titfer it is buy one, get one free because I need the coolroom space. A few changes will be happening over June and July.
Sunday, May 6, is the monthly open day, from 11 till 2. Come along for tastings and sales.
I also have some PTC taste test strips. Most people can taste PTC as bitter, about 25% are quite sensitive to its taste, 50% moderately sensitive, and 25% can’t taste it. How does this relate to your preferred bitterness in beer? Come along and find out.
Because of the Easter weekend, the April open day is Sunday the 8th instead of April first.
Sunday March 4th is brewery open day again. The brewery will be open 10 till 2 for tastings, sales and tours.
The next open day at the brewery will be Sunday February 4th. The Smokey Red ale will be available for tastings and sales.
The planned brewing of the red ale was postponed because of an equipment failure. The connector for the compressor on the glycol chiller burnt out the day before the planned brew. Without the chiller I would not be able to properly cool the wort.
It was replaced within a couple of days. Because of tank scheduling with contract customers there has been no opportunity to brew this beer until now. I’ll be brewing it on Monday.
It is inevitable that things go wrong. I love it when they go wrong like this. It was the least inconvenient moment.
The first open day went quite well. It was nice to see both new and old faces.
For me the really good part of the day was just how well the trial red ale was received. It’s a smokey red ale. I’ve used a reasonable amount of smoked malt in it, but nowhere near enough to make it a smoked beer. The resulting smokiness is gentle.
And the colour was pretty good. I plan to brew this beer in a week or so and will make a couple of small adjustments to enhance the colour. It should be available mid-October.
The next open day will be Sunday October first.
