4.4% Lager released alongside Beer Glamp NEIPA, both designed to be enjoyed as a contrast to each conversation that inspired them. Our inaugural Beer Glamp was a coming together of some of the most creative and focussed minds of the Australian beverage scene, for a discourse that resulted in two beers. Including winemaker, Patrick Sullivan, brewer and blender Topher from Wildflower, and the ever creative Sam and Duncan from Hop Nation.
Ideas around provenance, identity and occasion were discussed – Subjects of humble simplicity and mind blowing complex flavour bombs were also part of the discourse. Two beers were created over two days of brewing, we had two contrasting conversations around creating a beer together, which allowed us to create two really different styles.
One side had us discussing the simplest representation of what we were doing, focussed on the people, the place and the point in time. This discussion led us to create a lager, one that used Riverina malt from Voyager craft maltsters, and a large quantity of fresh East Kent Goldings hops, grown in the garden of Bens place. The result truly does speak of the location, people and a point of time – A beer that speaks of the Riverina with rich malt derived bready notes, and of the timethrough of locally grown fresh picked Goldings hop Character.
HOW IT TASTES
Pouring bright and golden with a tight white head. On the nose it is subtle with earthy hop notes and a clean biscuity malt aroma. The body is clean and crisp with a spicy, noble hop quality balanced with the light biscuity malt flavour.
