Wollundry Cycle Challenge – Beer and Cider Fest

October long weekend means a lot of things to a lot of people... mostly 3 days off. We knew when we signed on for this brewery deal that there would be sacrifices but the October long weekend was not what we had in mind.

What we didn't realize was that our commitment to the Wollundry Cycle Challenge wasn't an obligation but a massive opportunity!

Amongst the 5 Beer/Cider vendors were  4 breweries, including our plucky little outfit from Tumut. We were wedged between the likes of Bright Brewery, Bridge Road Brewers and The Thirsty Crow! These vendors have taken plenty of our money over the years and represent some of the best craft beer in the country. To say we were concerned about serving our beer with these guys would be an understatement. To assume that we thought we could be left wanting at the end of a day amongst beer royalty would be remise.

What we found was, as we unloaded our home made bar off the back of our rusty trailer was that they were great guys and they were as interested in us as we were them.

We met some amazing people and got to spend the day serving our beer with the absolute best of them. And they not once made us feel small or insignificant.

I haven't even gotten to the best part yet.... The people!

We had a crowd of amazing people at the event all day. Everyone was courteous and well behaved and we didn't have one single incident! Wagga was awesome! We have already committed to next year and we cannot wait to see who returns for the next one.

These are: Fair Trade, Organic and Rainforest Alliance Certified. 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.

Stylin' Brews: Red Ale

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!
