SEVEN YEARS at SEA 4.9% alc. vol. (TBC) Brewed Jan2010 750ml Price TBC
A dark ale made with oysters and aged in our hayshed for seven years ... need we say more?
SNAKEBITE 6.6% alc.vol. 750ml Price TBC
We originally brewed the Snakebite for Noma Australia, but with that journey now complete, we couldn't resist another fresh, young version which takes our cider and blends it with a light, fresh and aromatically hoppy ale. An Australian classic re-imagined.
SOUR CHERRY ALE Barrel Aged 6.3% alc. vol. (TBC) 2015 Vintage 750ml $30 each
Once the slow, complex, wild fermentations of the spontaneously fermented base ale (which becomes our Original Soured Ale) have reached a balanced stage (at around 2 years), we racked a portion to oak barrels (released from a well-known local winery) and added up to 25% w/v whole Morello Cherries from an orchard directly across the Derwent River from our farm and allowed a further wild fermentation to complete in barrel over 18 months. Intense red, lifted fruit characteristics, structured mouth feel and an intensely long dry finish … behold the result!
SOURED WILD PLUM ALE Barrel Aged est. 6.4% (TBC) 750ml $30 each
A 100% spontaneously barrel fermented ale to which up to 25% w/v Agen, Stanley & Blood plums were added early in the process. The plums were sourced from the orchards of our neighbours on the banks of the River Derwent. This ale was racked from barrel at 18months and bottled "as is", after minimal settling. This ale is richly plum coloured, bracingly dry and redolent of the characteristics of the fleshy, fruity plums used. A remarkable partner beverage for a wide variety of fully flavoured food, plums are always at their best when partnering soft cheeses, game meats and rich sauces.
