postcards
Channel 9's popular travel show Postcards recently visited the Mornington Peninsula Brewery, to have a chat with Managing Director, Matt Bebe, about how the brewery started back in 2010 and how it has continued to sky-rocket ever since. Presenter Bec Judd interviewed Matt over a schooner of Mornington Pale and a few tasty wood-fired pizzas. The episode, which will include other iconic Peninsula attractions, will air sometime in 2018.

Jiffy Squid joins the #tinnage family

New England IPA's have become an increasingly popular style of beer in the last 6-12 months, with Australians catching the apparently highly contagious 'haze-craze' from our American friends. New England IPA's (NEIPA for short) are characterised by their cloudy, sometimes downright murky appearance caused by additional proteins added to the brew. The result from this addition is that the hop profile of the beer is changed, removing much of the bitterness from the hops while retaining the aromatic, fruity and floral characteristics. Early in 2017 Mornington released Jiffy Squid, our take on the New England IPA style. We then followed that up with Coffee Squid and Squid Rising. In October, Jiffy Squid became the 10th Mornington Specialty beer to join the #tinnage family - a unique concept...

Date coding ensuring freshness

date coding can
Timing can be a big part of getting the optimal flavour and enjoyment out of a beer. Hop-forward beers are best when they are fresh. As hoppy beers age, such as Mornington Pale or IPA, the hop profile can drop in intensity, losing some of the amazing floral and fruity aromas and flavours of the hops that make these styles so sought after. Other styles such as Porters and Stouts can be aged to bring out some of the more subtle flavours. Mornington Peninsula Brewery is dedicated to providing the best quality and consistent craft beer that they can. Which is why the Brewery has invested in date coding equipment that stamps each individual can or bottle with the date it was packaged and an advisory...

Hop Culture the choice in Portsea

Portsea Hotel is an iconic landmark with spectacular views across Port Phillip Bay, a vast beer garden and equally enormous, multi-tiered inside. During Summer this venue is one of the most visited bars on the Mornington Peninsula. What’s on tap? Mornington Hop Culture is now available at three of their various bars, so there is no need to look further than the wooden Mornington tap handle. So this Summer head to Portsea Hotel and get some culture. Cheers

#tinnage009 has arrived

MimasSquare
Mornington Peninsula Brewery's latest can release is #tinnage009 Mimas Red IPA. It arrives at the perfect time, to help warm us up during the last of the Winter chill lingers. This hoppy, malty and full-bodied ale pours a dark rusty brown colour with a tan head. Aromas of ripened stone-fruit and Gran's glovebox candy greets the nose, with flavours of hoppy peach and biscuit on the palate. With extensive dry-hopping near the end of the brew brings out the fruitiness of the hops without an overwhelming bitterness. The name Mimas derives from the smallest moon of Saturn sharing its name. This moon is the smallest astronomical body that is known to be rounded in shape because of self-gravitation. Mimas the beer, much like the moon, is in a delicate balance....

Shine & Dine @ Brew Crew night

Shine & Dine
At July's Brew Crew night we had Elizabeth Lor, Director of the Free To Shine organisation come in as part of the Shine & Dine campaign and share with the Crew some of the great work the not-for-profit is doing about human trafficking. It is a topic that is not often spoken about but is abundant particularly in the SE Asian region, with millions of people falling victim to it each year. Free To Shine run an annual campaign Shine & Dine which involved getting local companies, such as Mornington Peninsula Brewery, to help raise awareness and funds for this cause. Along with a plethora of other companies; Commonfolk Coffee, Restaurant Soy and Steeples to name just a few Mornington Peninsula Brewery helped where we could by donating...
