Beer #260 - W/C 17th February 2020
BREWERY // A treacherous cove at Cape Conran is the inspiration for the name and the spirit of Sailor’s Grave, brews inspired by the ocean and rural living. A sea change and love for beer prompted Chris & Gab Moore to start their brewery in East Gippsland in the far South East of Australia. An abandoned butter factory near where Gabs grew up made the perfect spot for their new brewery. Their rural home is located where the Snowy River meets the sea and provides endless inspiration for recipes. From this bountiful land they pick indigenous botanicals in the bush, harvest salt, weed and sea life from from river and ocean, select fruits, grains & produce from local farms & orchards and capture wild yeasts from their backyard.
BEER // The American IPA is the undisputed king of styles in the craft beer world accounting for around a third of beers sold in the craft sector. But IPA is more of an umbrella term encompassing many sub-styles - the bitter & resinous IPAs that originated in San Diego, soft & juicy IPAs from Vermont, earthy & malty English IPAs and many more. Drowned Man is a Session IPA meaning it's designed to be more easy going than its boozy big brother that batters your palate with hops. The aromatic hops bring to mind melon, stone fruit and black tea without being overly bitter. The crisp, biscuity malt base includes oats for a round mouthfeel. It's a delicious and very quaffable beer that is gone before you know it. Luckily we still have a stash available on our webshop 🍻.
