Rinse and Repeat

As the old saying goes, Rinse and Repeat...

As our anniversary approached so did more disappointing news, thats right March would represent 12 months since we started our journey. 12 months since we agreed we would do this for real and in 12 months we still would not be trading.

We still were yet to see our brewery function, yet to obtain our Excise License and yet to receive our Producers License. All in all a pretty shit time all round.

Then out of the blue we get an email from OLGR they have looked at our Producers License application (it was only submitted in December...). Basically saying can you do XYZ. Sweet!

Then, there it was - "have you displayed this piece of paper?" No... DENIED!

Do not pass go, do not collect $200, do not get your $500 application fee back. You're done, start again. New forms, new fee, try again.

After a lot of phone calls we got a commitment to assess our Producers License application more promptly and we resubmitted...

Read the fine print!!

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!
