Our First CBIA Meeting

Our First CBIA Meeting

We recently attended our first CBIA (Craft Beer Industry Association) meeting.

It was a long day and a big drive but it was totally worth it! It's nice to see that the CBIA is proactively involved in the industry and that some key breweries are behind it and really giving it some momentum. We met some great people (you might even say craft beer celebrities), drank some great beer and came home with some amazing ideas and advice.

I think its pretty safe to say we were the most micro of the micro breweries in attendance but we just felt like one of the crew.

Chuck Hahn, Yep really! We may have been just a little star struck... (Just in case you haven't worked it out Hahn like Hahn Super dry!). If there is a father of Craft Beer in Australia your looking at him!

It was really comforting to know that there are so many people in the industry that just want to make GREAT! beer.

The Profile

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.

Stylin' Brews: Hefeweizen
Stylin' Brews: Hefeweizen

The Profile

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.
