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.

Here we’re going to give each of these a little break down so that when you next see them you know why they’re important to your cup of coffee and the world near and far.

The Profile

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!
