Exciting news for us down here at Tumut River Brewery. We’ve just been notified that we’ve made it to the final round of the 2018 Riverina Murray Regional Tourism Awards!! We’re in the Tourism Wineries, Distilleries and Breweries Category, we’re not sure who we’re up against but we feel like we’re in with a good chance of winning ourselves our first award in our new brewery! Also, if we win our category we’ll be entered into the National Tourism Awards, so this is pretty exciting stuff!!
The award ceremony will be held on the 21st of July and Destination Riverina Murray is also hosting a Tourism Muster on the Friday beforehand, 20th, which will be an excellent networking event for anyone involved in tourism in our area! You can buy tickets here.
There are 24 finalists total and we can’t wait to meet them all on the night and wish them all the best of luck!!
These awards are held annually and celebrate excellence in tourism in regional NSW. This year the awards are being held in the 3 NSW Destination Networks of Riverina Murray (That’s ours), Country and Outback and North Coast. The awards began back in 2004 and have evolved into a major tourism industry event for regional NSW.
More information on the event and the organisation can be found below
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!
