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!!

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

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.
