Easter weekend is over and we hope all that food, drink, chocolate and beer (because chocolate and beer always get their own categories) have settled and that you’re now feeling a little lighter and fresher than you were on Tuesday morning. Are you ready for some country music this weekend?! We are, and OH do we have the Australian country lineup here for you at the Tumut River Brewery or do we have the lineup. Here’s a small preview of what we’ve got going on!
Saturday 7th April
Do you like soul-shaking delta blues? This weekend we have The New Savages, from Melbourne, coming to the brewery. These guys play their own unique blend of Melbourne Hill Country Blues, you’ve simply got to hear it to know it! They mix the sounds of the old delta blues with the raw sexuality of The Doors and the storytelling qualities of Johnny Cash; and yes they have excellent voices like these guys! They’ve organized a 45 date national tour for the first half of 2018 and Tumut will be their stop this Saturday! Here’s their new single “Brother, I am Your Keeper” just to tease your ears….
Sunday 8th April
We’re also highly excited for Andrew Swift’s appearance at the brewery this weekend! He’s fresh off the back of the release of his new album, Call Out for The Cavalry, which debuted at #3 on the ARIA Country Albums Chart at the start of March. Celebrating this release the Melbourne born artist is touring the East Coast during March and April and we can’t wait to welcome him to the brewery! Swift is known to turn up with friends from time to time and even we don’t know who might be making a cameo experience on stage with him this Sunday down at the brewery. Here’s the second single from that aforementioned album, Call Out for The Cavalry!
So that’s what we’ve got going on down here this weekend. Did we mention yet that we have our new 24 tap system up and running!! If you haven’t already you should come down to the brewery and check it out, it’s pretty sweet! We’d suggest coming down on Saturday or Sunday so that you can see one of the above acts grace the stage at TRBC! See you soon!!
A red ale is a form of pale ale that is categorised by its colour. There’s still debate around the fact of whether or not a red ale is really its own class of ale or whether or not it falls under the umbrella of English bitter. A red ale is categorised by a slight sweetness and tea-like flavours. It has a light hop and toasted malt flavours, making it a well-balanced beer. It is made with a high proportion of pale malts and often contains caramel colouring to give it its signature red hue. It is often that red ales will have a dry finish. These beers are very easy drinking, as our very own Tim Martin will tell you from personal experience!
