Beer Lovers,

Myself & Bill Foley (our head brewer), will be down in Melbourne on the 18th & 19th April doing a collaboration brew for GBW with 3 Ravens, Holgate & Moo Brew.
As we are going to be in town for a couple of evenings I asked The Alehouse Project if they'd be interested in showcasing some of our beers, & we are delighted to confirm that they've asked us to do a complete tap takeover (13 taps) for the Thursday & Friday night. Bill & i will be in attendance both nights, & look forward to catching up with you all for a beer & discussing all things beer...
I'll try to keep you informed of any updates re beers etc for the night via this thread, but if you are interested in our beers please head to our Facebook page https://www.facebook.com/BacchusBrewing?ref=hl & "like" us, for the latest news...

Here's a small feature done by Craft Pint after his visit to our brewery. http://craftypint.com/beer/brewery/bacchus-brewing/


Cheers Ross

Great A reminder close to the date would be very welcome. I know a few besides myself who would love to get down and sink a few pints.

Get ye all in there. I've had a couple of sessions with Ross's taps at Bacchus. I think. I seem to remember Tidal Pete being there as well maybe. :chug:

Ross is the only commercial brewer that makes beer as good as a homebrewer. Both in terms of variety of beers and not having an accountant looking over the shoulder.

If only I could get a 5L keg or two down here until I'm up and brewing again.

I've had the Bacchus sour ale and the turkish delight stout at Super Whatnot. The sour ale was brilliant (nice and tart) and the stout was interesting. Nice lovely dark bitter taste and then a hit of turkish delight. I enjoyed it cause it was messing with my head a little.

I've got to pop in there more often to see what they have on tap.

Melbournites: do yourself a favour and get to the tap take over. 13 taps of adventurous beers... :icon_drool2: :beerbang:

Beer lovers.....

A quick reminder of our tap takeover at the Alehouse Project, Brunswick East next Thursday/Friday.

Beer list below:

IPA’s
Obama Black IPA (Approx 6.1%) – Crammed full of citrusy American hops, this beautifully balanced Black IPA is an explosion of tropical stone fruit flavours with layers of sweet ginger, caramel & coffee. Australia's 1st commercially brewed Black IPA.
Mosaic IPA (IBU’s 160. Approx 7%) – Single hopped hop explosion showing off this new hop from the States. Grapefruit & pineapple abound in what is rapidly becoming our favourite USA hop.
Hopilingus IPA (IBU’s 200. approx 7%) – Our latest & most hoppy creation, approx 1.5kg of hops in every keg. The finest, most resiny, hops from the USA, NZ & Australia were blended to create this hop explosion.
Brown Eyed girl (approx 5.6%) – American style Brown Ale. Big citrus hops balanced by malt with hints coffee & dark chocolate.

Imperial IPA’s
Cunning Ninja’s Imp IPA (Approx 12%) - Dangerously sessional Imperial Black IPA. Intense aroma of piney citrus mixed with ginger nut & marmalade leads into similar flavours combined with a peppery spiciness. The finish is long & bitter. Won 1st place at the AIBA 2013 for Best Draught Imperial American IPA
Red Bellied Black - Imperial Red Ale (approx 11.0%). Raise your glass to the light & this beer shows off it’s beautiful red underbelly. Intense tropical piney aromas lead into fruity tropical flavours with hints of honeydew melon & ginger. Dangerously sessional, due to a unique subtle tartness derived from our secret spice ingredient. Beware it’s bite. (Voted No.70 in Australia's top 100 this year)

Session Beers
Queensland Ale (Approx 4.7%) – Australian Ale using Qld ingredients. Macadamia Honey & Wattle seed. The aroma of passionfruit gives way to a subtle nutty, honey, taste with a dry spicy finish from the wattle. Won champion Golden Ale at Royal Qld show 2012.
Bacchus White Chocolate Pilsner. (approx 4.9%) – Spicy Czech Pilsner with flavour/aroma of white chocolate. A truly amazing taste sensation. Won champion specialty beer at Royal Qld show 2012.
Bacchus APA (approx 4.8%) – West coast style American Pale Ale, Citrus aromas & flavours balanced by a nice biscuity malt profile.
American Pie (approx 4.5%) – This lovely delicate ale has flavours of fresh apple strudel. Apple with pastry, vanilla & cinnamon spice – delicious.

Sours
Atomic Strawberry (approx 2.3%) - Approx 15kg of strawberries in this German Berliner Weisse. Tart & sour but so drinkable.

Other
Bacchus Sticke (approx 6.1%) – “Sticke” meaning special, is an Alt beer brewed a couple of times a year in Germany. Devine cigar like aroma, sweet mouth filling malt & a strong bitter finish.... one of my favourite beers.
Maple Coffee Stout – (approx 6.8%) – Our Belgian stout brewed twice as bitter with 500gms of the finest cold steeped coffee & then back sweetened with maple syrup. A match made in heaven.
London Porter (approx 6.4%) – Authentic 1700’s London porter. Smokey & slightly astringent. The depth of flavour is amazing. We have brewed this as a real ale & it will be served off the handpump straight off the yeast cake.

Please show your support for craft beer & join us. Looking forward to catching up with old friends & making some new ones.

Cheers Ross

I had thought this was last week and missed it as that was the week between pays. Luckily I was wrong - will head down after work on Friday for a few - the beer list looks great.

If the Mosaic is anything like Ross' other single hop beers (and Mosaic as good as people say it is), then this will be a corker beer.

Too poor to get the boat/plane over, this would be seriously good.
