Straffe Hendrik Heritage (2015)
In Belgium, the best seller from the Dupont Brewery. Historical association of the brewery’s land with the Benedictine abbey of Gembloux. Weighing in at an estimable 8.5%, it is admired by fans of trappist and abbey beers. It is distinctly drier though. Moinette has an herbal bouquet, ginger, pear and spice notes. Full and round with a fruity finish and snappy hop bitterness. Sensational head retention.
Me Myself & IPA
Kramah, shows off its hops muscles. We used an insane dose of highly fruity, aromatic hops, which gives the beer a strong aroma of mango, lychee, citruses and a bunch of other tropical fruits. The taste continues along this manner, then the elder components reveal themselves and continue into a bitterness that reminds one of biting into a fresh, juicy grapefruit. A very simple, yet effective combination of malts provides enough support so the bitterness does not rip out your tongue.
By definition, an India Pale Ale is hoppier and higher in alcohol than its little brother, pale ale — and we deliver in spades. Now one of the most well respected and best-selling IPAs in the country, this golden beauty explodes with citrusy flavor and hop aromas, all perfectly balanced by a subtle malt character.
This crisp, extra hoppy brew is hugely refreshing on a hot day, but will always deliver no matter when you choose to drink it.
Hops: Magnum, Chinook & Centennial
Pot Kettle Black
Brewed in one of the southern most breweries in the world, this ale is like a spring thunderstorm: dark, breezy, exhilarating and unsurprisingly wet. It’s near black and malty rich, yet is also fresh and joyously hoppy–a juxtaposition of beer styles that we call “Pot Kettle Black.” Enjoy it with your favorite friends and great music.
Tea leafed IPA.
When the team behind the Great Australian Beer SpecTAPular asked us to create a special beer for their 2012 festival, we started by searching for musical inspiration from their Australian homeland. The tunes lead us on a wild conceptual ride but we ended up settling on this hugely floral India Pale Ale that is “dry-leafed” with a massive load of Earl Grey tea.
Gunnamatta – the instrumental opening track of Paul Kelly’s 2004 album Ways and Means -refers to a beach break on Victoria’s Mornington Peninsula and had us thinking of good friends, cups of tea, surf, beer and rock ‘n’ roll!
As Paul Kelly says himself: “Remember, swim between the flags.”
