Welcome to our site!
If you are only a fraction as excited as me then I'm even more excited! It's been a long road and this first blog post has been a long time coming, but its here!
I need to apologise for the way information will be coming to this site for the next few months, it'll be sporadic and possibly dated. The reason for this is we've had a lot happen and I've made a lot of notes but we haven't had a site to put it on so its going to come out like a fire hose for a little bit. We're also still building the brewery and completing copious amounts of paper work for all levels of government so my time to post this information will be at times when I probably should be sleeping.
Back to the positive, we have a website and we're posting! Woot!
Thanks for tuning in and I cant wait to share more with everyone.
Indian Pale Ales (IPA) are heavy on the hop side. The red IPA hails from the United States and, therefore, they are even hoppier than their father, the English IPA. As a rule of thumb, the IPA has a higher alcohol content than its pale ale lineage, however, for the red IPA, we can also factor in the fact that red ales are also generally brewed stronger than their pale ale counterparts. This makes for a strong beer in a red IPA.
Hefeweizen is a straw coloured, usually hazy beer which is very attractive when served in the traditional Bavarian hefeweizen glass in the summer sunshine. Hefeweizens are made with at least 50% wheat in the mash and are not found to be brimming with hops, the flavours mainly come from the yeast instead. You see “Weizen” means wheat (you might remember that from our Dunkelweizen article) and “hefe” means yeast. These, as said, are the main two flavour components of a hefeweizen and the yeast used adds distinct clove and banana notes. Making these beers the perfect, easy drinking beverage in the sunshine.
