After pouring everyone elses' excellent beers over the last eleven years, we figured it was time to start brewing our own - time to install our own stainless and start walking the walk. So in early 2014 that's what we did; in the form of a Premier Stainless 600L Brewhouse with three single batch fermentors. Just the right size to play; enabling us to brew whatever, however and whenever we want. Light-footed, nimble brewing with the freedom of Contract and the stability of Stainless. From time to time we might even be lucky enough to collaborate with some of those excellent Brewers whose beers we've poured, and will continue to pour, over the years...
Style Black Pils
In a Nutshell Herbal, spicy and earthy with a hint of chocolate. Light Black.
Black: or thereabouts, with just a shaft of red when held up to the light.
Pils: most definitely. Lean, herbal, spicy and dry with that telltale strawlike malt character for which Pils is renowned.
Looks like a Stout, drinks like a Pils.
Style Mixed Culture India Saison
In a Nutshell Bugs and hops and spice. Incubated.
Despite its name, Fixation’s Collingwood brew pub ‘The Incubator’ is a squeaky clean, pure culture Brewery so little wonder Tom and Sam jumped at the opportunity to play with wild yeast and bugs - especially given that we’d be doing all the dirty work in Thebarton...
And we had good dirty to work with
Style Session India Saison
IN A NUTSHELL Pine, lime, spice. Aromatic and lean.
As a major sponsor of the Australian National Homebrewing Conference 2016 the Wheaty was charged with brewing the official ANHC 5 beer; it had to be (1) interesting yet quaffable (2) a style we hadn’t brewed before and (3) ideally something that tied-in with the themes of the Conference. Enter ‘Indy’ - combining the Malt profile and fermentation characters of a dry French Saison with the Hop charge of a New World (India)Pale...
Style Mini Vienna Pils
In a Nutshell Little, long and lean. Bready, herbal, clean...Dogged little Pils.
A beer named after a (sausage) dog named after a sausage - inspired by the use of Vienna (Weyermann Wiener) as a base Malt and our decision to breed this Pils long, lean and low.
Lots of character in a small frame was the idea...
Style Indigo Ale
In a Nutshell Indigo, floral and disconcerting. Literal Litmus.
For our fourth year hosting Pint of Science - an International festival bringing science out of the Lab and in to the Local - we figured it was high time to lay down a collaboration brew with the PoS crew, and help bring a Pint to the Science. The plan was to brew a beer that would both mess with your mind and encourage you to play with your beer...
Style Golden Ale
In a nutshell Smooth, bright and breezy. Easy listening.
If Thebarton was Yacht Rock...
In a Nutshell 5031. Best End.
We figured it was time to celebrate our light industrial suburb with a not-so-industrial Bitter. A hoppy, malty, bitey, bitter ale weighing in at a modest 3.7% booze. A heritage listed style brewed in the shadow of Mt Thebarton, within earshot of Thebby Theatre and a mere stones throw from our self-titled Tram Stop...
