Style: Shiraz Barrel Aged Imperial Stout ABV: 10.0% Mornington Peninsula Brewery is excited to announce the official release of Mornington Artisanal – our selection of uncompromised and distinctive hand-crafted ales. The first release is Old Pumping Station – Mornington Imperial Stout aged in Shiraz barrel. Dark chocolate and cherry aromas, hints of anise and berries laying throughout a textured and malty palate. The barrels were 1-3 year-old American oak from Heathcote. In AG’s words “one of the best beers we have produced’. Old Pumping Station is beautifully packaged in a 750ml champagne bottle and all individually numbered. The image on the bottle was hand-drawn by local artist Josh Brown and the label was designed by our Creative Director Rod Attenborough.
Style: Vermont IPA ABV: 5.1% We had Matt from Brewski down to collude on a beer for Brewsvegas 2017, and plumped for a Vermont IPA at 5.1% abv. Fat, juicy, cloudy and so very hoppy, Jiffy Squid is our take on the style. A full-frontal hop assault featuring passionfruit, mango and pineapple notes on a lightly bitter and soft palate. Jiffy Squid is a showcase of the very best of hops.
Style: German Berliner Weisse ABV: 3.7% Our Berliner Weisse is a low alcohol wheat beer, demonstrating pale sour and refreshing notes. This Specialty is light, crisp and moreish.
Style: India Pale Lager ABV: 6.1% Our Specialty Beer is an Australian-hopped India Pale Lager (IPL) at 6.1% ABV. Hopped to the hilt with fruity Australian hops our lager presents pale straw in colour, much like a German pilsner. Big tropical fruit flavours of passionfruit and melon lead to a super dry, clean finish, making for a sessionable ale.
Style: Collaboration Hazelnut Brown Ale ABV: 5.5% After having the team from Beer Deluxe down for a Brewery tour, and also after a few rounds, conversation moved naturally as it does to collaboration beers. One thing led to another, and Nut King Cole was born. Nut King Cole is a Hazelnut Brown ale with a golden brown colour, displaying aromas of nuts, chocolate and sweet dried fruit. The palate is rich and sweet, with an earthy nut flavour coming through thanks to the 12 kg of fresh hazelnuts and hazelnut extract included during the brew. To get the full story as to why we called it Nut King Cole, you will have to ask Derek at Beer Deluxe.
Style: American Wheat Beer ABV: 5.4% Our Specialty Beer, Sunnyside American Wheat, is our take on an American Wheat beer. Designed to sate a thirsty summer palate, Sunnyside presents cloudy straw in colour with a pillowy white head of foam, with bright and enticing aromas of pine and mild passionfruit. The use of rye malt and blood oranges on brewday lend to a dry, austere palate of white pepper and a citrus tartness. Summer sessions.
Style: Hoppy Sour ABV: 5.5% A refreshing kettle sour, heavily dry hopped using Bitter Gold, Citra and Calypso, Brain Squeeze is less intrusive as the name alludes. Starts off with a tropical punch leading to a very dry clean finish. A really sessionable beer for the spring time.
Style: Botanical Lager ABV: 5.1% This Botanical Lager was brewed with Jordan from Frankies in Sydney for Craft Beer Week. Brewed with NZ Malts, Japanese hops (Sorachi Ace), cucumber and Australian native lemon myrtle. A crisp, lean botanical lager.
