Craft Beer Rising 2015 - Modus Operandi Mini-Tap-Takeover + Latest Beers In Store

This weekend we welcome the second instalment of Craft Beer Rising in Australia - a national day of celebrating the brewers, beers and venues that are driving the revolution that is changing Australia's beer culture. Our event is simple but it's a tasty one! We are tapping 2 kegs of Modus Operandi beers in a mini-tap-takeover event on our growler system. One of these beers is the latest release from Modus Operandi and isn't part of their core range - meaning we may or may not see it again! So drop in with your growler/squealer (or you can buy them in store) and grab a fill to celebrate Australia's craft beer industry.

TAP 1: Modus Operandi Former Tenant Red IPA

Bursting with aromas of Passionfruit and Mango due to a heavy hand on the Mosaic and Galaxy dry hops, this Ruby Red IPA has a complex blend of citrusy hops and savoury caramel malt flavour followed by a slightly sweet finish.

7.8% ABV

Squealer Fill (945ml): $20

Growler Fill (1.89L): $38

 

TAP 2: Modus Operandi Honey Pot Saison

Brewed with Organic stringy bark honey and dry hopped using El Dorado hops, it puts off a sweet citrusy tang …Like any good honey pot.

5.8% ABV

Squealer Fill (945ml): $17

Growler Fill (1.89L): $32

Just under a dozen new beers this week + a heap of new Belgium beer glasses! All info listed below, roll on the weekend! 

Now Pouring on Growlers  |  New Beers in Store  |  New Beers Online

 

Now Pouring on Growlers & Squealers

TAP 1: EPIC Apocalypse Black IPA

The dark brother of Armageddon is finally back. Blacker. Hoppier. Better. You think it should be roasty and full bodied like a stout. WRONG! It’s face punchingly aromatic, juicy delicious hops dominate the flavour, and it finishes with a lingering hoppy bite.

6.8% ABV

Squealer Fill (945ml): $23

Growler Fill (1.89L): $44

 

TAP 2: Deschutes Chasin' Freshies Fresh Hop IPA

Like fresh powder, it’s a seize-the-moment thing. This year we've chased down the famed Mosaic hop from the amazing John I Haas growers. At harvest, we rush the hops from the vine to our kettles to ensure we capture the purest, juiciest essence of the hop flower in every beer. Enjoy the bright, bold aroma and flavour that comes but once a year.

Latest Beer Update for the Weekend

Hi friends,

Hope the shortened week treated you well. The weekend is here and it is time to kick-off the shoes and relax!

We've had some great new beers hit the shelves this week, read on for the latest rundown...

 

Now Pouring on Growlers & Squealers

 TAP 1: 8 Wired Flat White Coffee Milk Stout

Flat White is based on a traditional English milk stout. This beer contains lactose, an unfermentable sugar from milk. Containing freshly roasted Brazilian and Cuban coffee from C4 in Christchurch, the combination of lactose and coffee brings together the ingredients of a Flat White. This silky smooth beer is going to have flavours of coffee, chocolate and sweet lactose.

5.5% ABV

Squealer Fill (945ml): $19

Growler Fill (1.89L): $36

 

TAP 2: Modus Operandi Zoo Feeder IPA

Fresh pine and citrus hop aromas can be expected thanks to a blend of our favourite Australian and American hops. We took a classic English style IPA and made it a stronger and bolder “American Style” by beefing up the malt bill and just adding some more hops to it. Back in the late forties, Hallstrom (our M.O. man) purchased forty acres of farm land right here for 32,000 pounds to ensure the animals up at Taronga Zoo were provided the freshest grub possible.

7.2% ABV

Squealer Fill (945ml): $19

Growler Fill (1.89L): $36

Australia Day Long Weekend

Hi Everyone, hope you're all sorted for your Australia Day Long Weekend!

We've got an all Aussie line-up on growlers and a number of awesome new Aussie beers in store to celebrate. Check them out below. Also just a reminder we are open Saturday 10am-5pm, Sunday 10am-4pm and CLOSED Australia Day.

 

TAP 1: Shenanigans Wrong Turn Belgian Summer Ale w/ Rye & Oats

What happens when you take a Wrong Turn on your way to a Belgian farmhouse? You most likely end up at an Abbey. Wrong Turn, our second Stunt Beer release is a Belgian summer ale with rye and oats. It's a twist on our first beer release (Grisette), using a Belgian Abbey style yeast strain and dry hopped with some new world hops. It's fruity, light and refreshing.

4.4% ABV

Squealer Fill (945ml): $14

Growler Fill (1.89L): $25

 

TAP 2: Shenanigans Red Sky IPA

An American style IPA infused with jasmine and hibiscus flowers. Australian and US hops give this beer a citrus and passionfruit foundation which is built on by the exotic, floral aroma and flavour of jasmine flowers. The hibiscus flowers give the beer a subtle shade of red and a slightly tart and refreshing finish.

6.5% ABV

Squealer Fill (945ml): $16

Growler Fill (1.89L): $30

Now Pouring on Growlers & Squealers

TAP 1: Doctor's Orders Defibrillator

Defibrillator takes the traditional German Weizen Doppelbock and ages it on American Bourbon Barrel Oak. The culmination of the weizen yeast, chocolate malt and bourbon oak present a complex layered aroma. The bourbon oak nuances provide a satisfying warming sensation as it travels to your “heart” defibrillating it.

7.5% ABV

Squealer Fill (945ml): $18

Growler Fill (1.89L): $33

 

TAP 2: EPIC Lupulingus Double IPA

An intergalactic tangerine colour. The hop intensity is so great you continue to get the flavours developing in your mouth long after you have swallowed. It is full-on ripe summer stonefruit – like baked caramelised peaches, drizzled with apricot syrup – the hop resin character is fresh and piney but leaves an oily and gum numbing finish as your tongue is pounded by the chronic bitterness that feels like it will last forever.

9.0% ABV

Squealer Fill (945ml): $26

Growler Fill (1.89L): $50

Squealer Fill (945ml): $18

Growler Fill (1.89L): $33

 

TAP 2: Epic Loves Bacon Smoked IPA

A surprising first sip, the smokey bacon character drops back after a few tastes. The colour is a very bright burnish orange copper. The aroma is sweet yet smokey. The taste is smokey bacon with sweet caramel malt, kind of like candied bacon in a glass.

Beer Cartel Store Update - Latest Beers & Christmas Fast Approaching!

With Christmas a little over 5 weeks away Christmas orders are already starting to pile in and the warehouse is bulging with old favourites and new beers. If you live interstate we highly recommend getting your Christmas beer orders in sooner rather than later to ensure you get exactly what you want as we're sure to run out of certain beers with a lot of smaller Australian breweries often struggling to keep up with demand this time of year.

For all latest beers and whats pouring on growlers read on below:

Now Pouring on Growlers & Squealers

TAP 1: BrewDog Libertine Black Ale

Libertine Black Ale is a wickedly decadent black beast of a beer that has been hammered with the epic Simcoe hop. Libertine delivers a dark hop bomb combining the west coast hop awesomeness of an IPA, the dark and indulgent malt flavours of big stout.

7.2% ABV

Squealer Fill (945ml): $22

Growler Fill (1.89L): $42

Beer Cartel Store Update 7th November - Our Shout, New Beers & Movember

A handful of new beers in this week, a FREE beer event to add to your diary and supporting Movember... read on for full details. 

Our Shout: We are going to be shouting a keg at Cammeray Craft on Friday 14th November from 7pm as a thank you for everyone's support this year. Come on down and have a beer with us! RSVP required - click here.

Movember: One week in and top lip fluff is taking shape... some better than others. We're in full swing to raise funds and awareness for Male Depression and Prostate Cancer. If you would like to support us it would be hugely appreciated - you can do so here.

New Beers: full list of all latest stock (new beers from De Ranke, Victory, Day of The Dead & To Ol) and what's pouring on growlers below.

 

Now Pouring on Growlers & Squealers

TAP 1: BrewDog Libertine Black Ale

Libertine Black Ale is a wickedly decadent black beast of a beer that has been hammered with the epic Simcoe hop. Libertine delivers a dark hop bomb combining the west coast hop awesomeness of an IPA, the dark and indulgent malt flavours of big stout.

7.2% ABV

Squealer Fill (945ml): $22

Growler Fill (1.89L): $42

 

TAP 2: Yeastie Boys Minimmatta Earl Grey Pale Ale

A sessionable earl grey pale ale, inspired by the common complaint from Gunnamatta drinkers: “I just wish I could find some way of drinking more of the stuff”. We slashed the booze, halved the tea, and doubled the puns to create a perfect sessionable balance. Heirloom orange and floral notes entice you in on the nose, and are followed by a clean malt profile carrying a hint of tropical fruit, before giving way to the fresh hop finish and lengthy floral tea notes on the palate

A Movember Craft Beer Update

Our line-up of new beer continues in store this week, read on for more info.

Also an event to add to your diary: we are going to be shouting a keg at Cammeray Craft on Friday 14th November from 7pm as a thank you for everyone's support this year. Come on down and have a beer with us! For those customers outside of Sydney watch this space, we will have something for you too.

This month we also say hello to Movember - our top lips will be filling with fluff as we look to raise funds and awareness for Male Depression and Prostate Cancer. If you would like to support us it would be hugely appreciated - you can do so here.

Now Pouring on Growlers & Squealers

TAP 1: Buxton Blood Stone Red Ale

Blood Stone is the session equivalent to Buxton’s High Tor, a red ale packed full of American Hops. This sessionable red ale was created for the GABS festival in Melbourne to feature the Australian Galaxy hop.

4.2% ABV

Squealer Fill (945ml): $20

Growler Fill (1.89L): $38

 

TAP 2: Yeastie Boys Minimmatta Earl Grey Pale Ale

A sessionable earl grey pale ale, inspired by the common complaint from Gunnamatta drinkers: “I just wish I could find some way of drinking more of the stuff”. We slashed the booze, halved the tea, and doubled the puns to create a perfect sessionable balance. Heirloom orange and floral notes entice you in on the nose, and are followed by a clean malt profile carrying a hint of tropical fruit, before giving way to the fresh hop finish and lengthy floral tea notes on the palate
