Celebrating 7 years of Brewing
b2mach2
Brew Date:
June 14th 2012
What:
A re-make of our 2010 anniversary beer the B2 Bomber.
Brewing this beer again has allowed us to tweak the dials a little to create an even better take on a non-existant style: A  Belgian Black India Ale. Dark, Fruity and Hoppy, in all the right ways. This is a beer you will never forget.

Release Dates:
Orders are now being taken for bottles, which should be ready for release in the couple of days.
Please note we have bottled less than 1000 of these, they will not last.

"Zeffer" Cider has breezed into Australia

A new pear and apple cider has just arrived in Australia from N.Z , its called ZEFFER which means light breeze.

I must admit I usually dont like cider.. when presented with any Cider vs Beer decision, craft beer always won hands down.

But then I tried ZEFFER... its remarkably dry and is made with household name Apples or Pears, NO fruit concentrate, NO added sugar & NO bright colouring to resemble summer fruit

JUST WELL MADE CRAFT CIDER THAT TASTES LIKE PEARS & APPLES !!

Soren from 8 Wired recommended these guys to me and Im so glad he did... he is going to do a collab farmhouse cider with them later in the year, cant wait !!
