After what seemed like a lifetime, a couple of months had passed and it was time to take the next big step. Simon offered me a job with him and Penny so we could use our quiet time to make headway on the brewery. So it was goodbye to Visy and hello to the next step.
That time turned out to be very valuable and we continued to move forward.
In May I officially started as a tyre fitter (at least until Tumut River Brewing Co takes off).
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!
