Hey Guys! We're sorry that it’s been a while from us here on the blog. Christmas had us running around like crazy down here at the brewery to make sure we had everything ready for everything and everyone! We pulled it off and had a sensational time doing it too!!
First off, we want to thank all of you who’ve joined us this Christmas and over the last year, drank with us, sung with us, talked with us and laughed with us, we would not have been able to do all of this without you! Furthermore, we want to extend an even larger thanks to those of you who have worked with us, be it serving our craft beer, making and serving delicious homemade foods, playing rocking music and helping us create the perfect festive atmosphere!! We know there will be something we’ve missed but we haven’t forgotten you, we love you all!!
Now for the news!! Excitingly we are going to be expanding our operations, but not in the way you may hope or think. We’re going to begin roasting our own coffee from February!
We're calling ourselves Tumut River Roasters and it’s gonna be roasted and sold here, on-site, at the brewery! All of our coffee is sourced from a single supplier and we will be featuring single origin coffees from all over the world to allow you guys (and us) to really explore the taste of coffee from around the world. We’re always going to have two options available: the current Single Origin Coffee and a Tumut River Roasters House Blend. Single origin coffee is a coffee where all the beans come from one small geographic region in a country; think of how the same wine grape can taste very different when it comes from different regions all over the world, well coffee works exactly the same way!. The House Blend will be available year round and our single origin will rotate out every few weeks, once we run out we’re on to new beans and a fresh flavours. So if you like the one you’ve tried buy that bag because it may not be here next time you come through! Here’s a little information on our House Blend and first Single Origin, just to get your taste buds tingling.
Tumut River Roasters House Blend: A premium blend of coffees made from 100% Arabic beans. This is an exotic blend from the highest grown estate coffee in Guatemala. It is a blend of Sulawesia Toraja, PNG Kimel an Ethiopian Limu beans.
HueHueTenango, Guatemala, Single Origin: This coffee from the northern highlands of Guatemala and contains distinct fruit flavours. The flavour profile is uniquely sweet and satisfying. It is rich yet soft with fig and raisin notes, and a lively citrus acidity.
About HueHueTenango: HueHueTenango is one of the most rugged and remote areas of Guatemala and thanks to dry, hot winds the region is protected from frost, allowing coffee to be cultivated at up to 6,500ft.
To keep your taste buds tingling we're soon going to start releasing blog posts focused on coffee from around the world, it's history and so forth. So stay tuned for a more in-depth look at our second favourite beverage!
So there you have it. We’ve thrown in a few pictures of our shiny new equipment to tease you, come and have a morning brew (no that kind of brew) with us this week!
We’ll put the coffee on ;)
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!
