You read that right, taxis on us. Free means FREE!! We’re handing out free taxi rides to our patrons during the week. These will be going to anyone that comes along with two or more people and joins us at our brewery for a meal. Just ask for the card before you leave to be sure that you get your ride for free, otherwise it’s not on us! There’s a photo of a sample card below so you know what you’re looking for.
Just to avoid any disappointment, FREE means a taxi ride to the maximum value of $15 which pretty much gets you to anywhere in Tumut - we can't afford to pay for cabs to Canberra or Wagga just yet!
Well, first and foremost, we’re doing this so no one has the temptation or an excuse to try and drive home after a few drinks. It’s not right and it’s not what we want anyone to be doing; be it from our location or any other place out there.
Secondly, we don’t want people to be put off coming to our brewery because they don’t want to go home through the cold and/or wet darkness. It also means that we -and you- are supporting a local business. A comfortable and quick Tumut taxi ride will take you home to the warmness of your own house.
So next time you’re wondering whether you and your friends or family should come down to the brewery on a weekday remember that a comfortable and FREE local taxi ride is waiting to take you home.
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.
