Beer Store Update - Saturday 31st May

Last day of Autumn - Thank fully we've got a free Moon Dog Tasting on plus some pretty special new beers!

Now Pouring on Growlers & Squealers 

TAP 1: Illawarra - Veracious Herbaceous Golden Ale

A Golden Ale named Voracious Herbaceous. As the title suggests, this brew has been rather busy devouring great quantities of hops. The brewers have added plenty of Australian and American varieties to leave a beer abound with tropical flavours like passionfruit and citrus. While there’s a good dose of hop oil and resin in this one, at 4.8 percent ABV the Voracious Herbaceous still manages to remain a fairly light and breezy wee drop meaning it goes down as smoothly as its name rolls off your tongue.

4.8% ABV

Squealer Fill (945ml): $14

Growler Fill (1.89L): $26

 

TAP 2: Nogne O IPA

A rich, malty, and very bitter ale. Cascade hops provide a long, fruity, and spicy after-taste. Rated 99 out of 100 on Ratebeer.com.

7.5% ABV

Squealer Fill (945ml): $18

Growler Fill (1.89L): $35

Craft Beer Update Saturday 17th May

How are ya going? Just tapped a couple of new beers on growlers - check them out below: 

 

Now Pouring on Growlers & Squealers 

TAP 1: To Øl Hop Love Pils – Hoppy Pilsner

Hoppy Pilsner. Passionfruit & Peach (Mosaic, Simcoe) A Crisp and refreshing Pilsner to be enjoyed all day long.

This is part of To Øl‘s Session Series. The goal of the series is to present some proper session beers to world. Beers you will drink over and over again. Beers that you will return to when you have been drinking black impy stouts or old rusty gueuzes. Basically beers we could drink at the office without getting hammered.

4.5% ABV

Squealer Fill (945ml): $21

Growler Fill (1.89L): $39

 

TAP 2: Rocks Brewing - Conviction Series, Wet Hop Dark Ale

To celebrating the hop harvest in Tasmania, Rocks Brewing Co secured 50kg for fresh hop flowers direct from Owen Johnson at Hop Products Australia.

The original idea was for a Indian Red Ale-style creation, however the result is a rich, dark, American-style Brown Ale. The beer showcases the rich textures of dark chocolate malt, balanced with Crystal malt and the fresh Stella and Galaxy hop flowers. The brew is clean on the nose – with all the hop flavour held on the palate.

5.7% ABV

Squealer Fill (945ml): $20

Growler Fill (1.89L): $38

 

TAP 3: Happy Goblin Bitter

English style Bitter made with English Marris Otter malt, plenty of English Fuggles hops and generous portions of Crystal Malt.

Brewed at Mt. Kuringai

4.6% ABV

Squealer Fill (945ml): $13

Growler Fill (1.89L): $24

Sydney Craft Beer Store Update - 10th May

A couple new brews hit the shelves this week (including Rogue Voodoo Pretzel, Raspberry & Chocolate!) and a tap change yesterday afternoon sees Epic Carolina Amber Ale come on tap for growlers & squealer fills. 

Now Pouring on Growlers & Squealers 

TAP 1: To Øl Hop Love Pils – Hoppy Pilsner

Hoppy Pilsner. Passionfruit & Peach (Mosaic, Simcoe) A Crisp and refreshing Pilsner to be enjoyed all day long.

4.5% ABV

Squealer Fill (945ml): $21

Growler Fill (1.89L): $39

 

TAP 2: Epic Carolina Amber Ale

The beer was designed to complement the launch of a limited release hot sauce called Carolina Reaper, which uses the Carolina Reaper, the hottest chilli in the world at over 2 million scoville units.

There are no chillies in the beer. The hops are Chinook and Centennial. It is dry hopped at a rate between Armageddon and Hop Zombie.

The aroma has a big punchy citrus and piney character, flavour is hop driven, with some crystal/caramel malt characters in the background before you get a noticeable slam of forceful hop bitterness. A big beer for a big hot sauce.

7.2% ABV

Squealer Fill (945ml): $22

Brew & A with Cavalier Brewing

Every now and then we like to put a bit of a spotlight on our favourite brewers - this time it's a Brew and A with Heath Shirtcliffe from Cavalier Brewing. Read on and learn something new about these great guys....Cavalier_Logo

 

Where do you see the Australian craft beer scene in the next 2 – 4 years?

Growing rapidly and hopefully healthily with more quality craft beer coming on to the scene.

 

Favourite beer at the moment (that’s not yours!)?

Rodenbach Vintage 2011, Cantillon Gueuze. 

 

What would be the weirdest beer you’d like to brew? Funds, time, ingredients being unlimited and at full disposal.

I don’t want to give my crazy ideas away (Winking smile)

 

What is the one thing that you most dislike about your job?

Sitting in front of a laptop for 80% of the day, but I still love it!

Cavalier_Team

 

What was your beer epiphany, i.e. the beer that got you hooked on craft beer/brewing or convinced that there was better stuff than the mainstream?

Duvel.

 

Who is the person/people in the industry that you look to as beer “godfathers” for direction / inspiration / advice?

Dave and Cam from Mountain Goat, Brad Rogers, Mikkeller, Anchorage Brewery and my two business partners Steve Martin and Andrew Cronin, their knowledge and skills are endless.

 

What got you into brewing?

A love for craft beer and my two business partner’s Steve and Andrew.

 

Which beer are you most proud of and why?

I have three, Cavalier Black Coffee IPA, Cavalier Imperial Stout and our current IPA single batch limited release. Coffee IPA because it took us such a long time to decide on the cold press drip coffee we would use and working out the balance of the hoppiness to coffee flavour was super tricky but we got it perfect! The stout because it is my favourite beer we make, I drink it all year round. The IPA because it is one of the most balanced IPA’s I have ever tried, really happy with it!

 

What is one thing most people wouldn't know about the brewery or your beers?Cavalier_Brewery

We probably have a few things that people wouldn’t know about us, first thing would be that we self funded our brewery, designed it entirely ourselves from the ground up, commissioned and installed the entire thing ourselves and now have multiple other breweries working out of and owning tanks in our brewery. We brewed in my shed for the first six months of Cavalier being a business, hand labelling, hand bottling, hand filling, with hand written labels. Lastly, we never pilot batch any beers we make, every limited release beer that comes out of our brewery is the one and only batch produced. 

 

Where do you get your inspiration for your beers from?

Inspiration from new ingredients and food we discover.

 

What's one key tip you'd give to people starting in home brewing?

Yeast management. Temperature of fermentation and pitching rates, this is more important than any other process. Brewers make wort, yeast makes beer.

 

What do you like most about your job?

I have met some of the nicest people I have ever met in the world in the brewing industry, both on a personal level and a business level and I get to travel around the country drinking beer with them.

Boutique Beer Update Saturday 3rd May

Bit of chilly Saturday is here - is May the start of Dark beer season? Below is a list of New beers to the store plus what's on growlers:

Now Pouring on Growlers & Squealers 

TAP 1: Doctors Orders Iron Lung Black Imperial Pilsner

Iron Lung gives you everything you enjoy in Black IPA’s with the distinctive nuisances of a lager with the colour twist. This beer showcases Australian and German malts; American, Australian & New Zealand hops in a hop forward but approachable Autumn lager. The American hops welcome you into a prolonged journey of wonderful bitterness backed with a complimentary balance of malt and lager derived flavour. 

7.0% ABV

Squealer Fill (945ml): $16

Growler Fill (1.89L): $30

 

TAP 2: Flat Rock / Beer Cartel Co Lab Project Hoppy Bunny Massacre

This is our first ever Co Lab brew with our neighbours and great pals Flat Rock Brew Cafe, born out of the want for two local beer focused venues to do something together. We've taken a brown ale, made it into ..  ahem ... a super (Imperial) brown ale and then because it is Easter (or was), added a Bunny to create our Hoppy Imperial Brown Ale. All the awesomeness of an Imperial Brown Ale - hopped up.

Get this before it hops off.

7.0% ABV

Squealer Fill (945ml): $14

Growler Fill (1.89L): $26
