The Easter long weekend brings two big beer releases from Earth Beer: fingers crossed for some sunshine!
As the seasons begin to change and the juicy mangoes have stopped fruiting, they’ve brewed, kegged and canned their last batch of the Mango Weisse Bier for the year (check out www.earthbeercompany.com.au for stockists). Saying farewell to the summer mango until later this year, they are excited to announce Their second seasonal release, the Hoppy Red Ale, dropping this Easter long weekend. Look forward to a hop-driven red ale brewed to celebrate the autumn harvests from our local red soils. This beer is a rich, full malt body paired with Mosaic and Amarillo hops to deliver citrus and dark fruit characters and a smooth, resinous finish… perfect for those sunny arvos and cool evenings!
The Aussie Lager, the first of their Unearthed series, drops on the same weekend. Earth Beer describe this as ‘a modern approach to the humble lager, showcasing the finest Aussie ingredients including all-organic malt. This gorgeous beer showcases a golden hue with a medium, yet full-flavoured, body and a natural slightly-hazy appearance. They have used Aussie Ella & Eclipse hops to create what they call ‘a modest and classic bitterness, with a hint of zesty citrus and pine – making for a crisp and refreshing lager.’
‘Good news comes to those who wait,’ they say, ‘and a fresh stock of the Rising Sun Pale Ale has finished brewing and it’s ready to grace your lips this week. Our flagship brew is in high demand, and owing to our small-batch handcrafting methods, production has been limited, but is now back on at your local. This exclusive beer is everything you could imagine sunshine to taste like – golden-bodied with subtle notes of citrus fruits rounding out softly on the palette.’
Last, but not least, the crew at Earth Beer would like to give a massive warm thanks to all the local legends who came and supported their Flood Disaster Fundraiser. ‘We raised over $5500 on the day through cash donations and raffles, with 100 per cent being shared to good local charities and flood-affected businesses,’ they say.
Drop in to the brewery between the mountains and sea Friday to Sunday, 11am to 8pm and try some locally brewed, cracking Easter ales.
