Our Specialty #GABS ‘Mint Julep Ale’ is Now on Tap, 26th May 2016
Our Specialty beer offering changes frequently.
ABV / 5.6%
Decadent and depraved was brewed for GABS (sometimes known as the Great Australasian Beer SpecTAPular), a beer festival with a rich tradition of strange, one-off oddities sent in by brewery’s all over Australia (and increasingly the world). Brewers often look well outside the standard hops, malt and yeast for inspiration for a GABS beer recipe. This year we didn’t make it much further than our herb garden.. The beer is a tribute to the Mint Julep, classic cocktail of the American South and official drink of the Kentucky Derby. It has only the faintest amount of hop bitterness to allow the sweet, biscuit character of the base malts to shine through. The aroma is heavily accented by the fistfuls of mint shoved into the fermenter.
