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.

Arabica VS Robusta Beans

Where coffee and wine differ here is that there are thousands of varieties of wine grapes and many different varieties have dedicated followings. With coffee, however, we don’t have this variation in the beans and you might be surprised to hear that there are only two types of beans that we use to produce most the worlds third most popular beverage; arabica and robusta. We are not saying these are the only varieties of coffee bean but they are the only ones used to produce coffee.

Stylin' Brews: Smoked Porter
Stylin' Brews: Smoked Porter

August 01, 2018

Porters are beers made with brown malts, creating a deep, dark coloured ale. These malts give off richer flavours of coffee, chocolate, dark fruits and caramel, often with some vanilla and toffee swilling around in the glass too. Hops? Not too prominent a flavour here, mainly used just for bittering, and any hop flavour there is will complement the flavours of the malts.
