Adelaide Beer BBQ Festival 18 Beer List Info

The following listed here are subject to Legal Proprietary Information – limited details tendered.

Beer Name : ‘The Silesian’  

Style : Gose 

This ale is 4.9 % abv  27 ibu.

The Gose style is an historical beer that was made throughout Saxony and nearby regions for hundreds of years until the early 1800s as the new Lager revolution began.

This beers name came from my time working in the Barossa Valley and its migrant rich history. The Seppelt family fled persecution from the Prussian Tsar to the region we now affectionately call the Barossa. Decisions were being made early, after arriving to their new home, as to the regions name –  ‘New Silesia’ was one of many put forward – just a little local history for a great historical beer. This example flavoured with cracked coriander seeds, salt and fermentation with a blend of different yeast strains. Enjoy

The Silesian will be into package in for release in September 18 #thesilesian

 

Beer Name : Entry Level

Style : Australian Ale

This batch made especially for ABBF18 with abv higher than it will be into package in for release in September

Its been a long held belief of mine that there is always a starting point in tasting a paddle/flight of beers as there is for abilities in the brewhouse. The name is just that – an Entry level into the craft beer brewing world for the brewery, brewer and their customers.  This Ale is an easy approachable introductory pale example of an Australian Ale. A great beer to start a conversation with. #entrylevel

Beer Name : Chinooooookie Express

Style : Amber Lager (geek alert – Californian Common )

4% abv 35ibu

This beer a collaboration with Keyneton Hops -Barossa Ranges S.A. using their magnificent locally grown Chinook Hops. Proprietor Anthony King looking to expand his bine coverage in the 2018-19 season to keep up with demand. Get in early folks – great local produce and when ready to harvest – go very quickly. When discussing how to best display the aromatic qualities of Chinook a lager yeast fermented at Ale temperatures selected. However with using only Keyneton Chinook hops and California Lager yeast – the end result in a delicious – ‘ I’ll have another thanks’ awesome stone fruit flavoured example. I must disclose – Chinook hops – one of my favourites. #chinooooookieexpress

……………………………………………………………

Beer Name : Land of the long White Manuka Milk Stout

Style : Milk Stout

7.5 % abv 

colour 98 ebc 

71ibu

A Collaboration with Gladfield Malts NZ see this example solely made with Gladfield malts and NZ hops.

While accessing /sampling Gladfield’s malt range an idea came to mind of a lightly smoked milk stout. The smoking process uses 100% NZ grown West Coast Manuka wood

From Gladfiled Malt website https://www.gladfieldmalt.co.nz/our-malts/

How does it taste?
Overlaid with floral, sweet characteristic with natural Manuka smokiness.
What does it add to the beer?
Smooth, natural smokiness to the finished beer or whiskey.

This example is a little out of the beer category guidelines as for me this is an Imperial Stout – the abv ibu and colour range put this in the Imperial category but no category  – This Imperial Milk Stout which obviously with your first olfactory assessments will be slight Manuka smoke aromas followed with the lengthy deploying flavour profile that will go on for an extended period. Getting the balance right on this intrinsic to it being worthy of your consideration and its association with Gladfield Malt.

……………………………………………………..

Beer Name : Tsars Tar

Style : Russian Imperial Stout

7.6 % abv  102 ebc  73ibu 

This biggest of the Stout family styles here and for the ABBF18 on one of the beer engines (hand pump)

A classic style – its big, deep roasted malt flavour profiles are to be savoured. The naming of this beer just simply came from the history of its creation back in 1698. http://www.alexanderpalace.org/palace/ImperialStout.html

Beer Name : Plausible Deniability

Style : (Geek Alert!) – you decide, its a Lager                                                                                                                        (Base Malt, Abyssinian Purple Wheat, Rye Malt  – a little colour 25ebc)

5.3% abv  25 ebc  30ibu

Give Kale the flick! The worlds new super food Abyssinian Purple Wheat is here! – we’re looking after your health with this beer! I’m unaware of anyone else is using Abyssinian Purple wheat at #ABBF18 – so enjoy this very healthy beverage peeps. “it behoves the brewer to assure all, that there is no conceivable alternative” – (I just wanted to use the word ‘behoves’ – Thanks Cleaver!)

Lots of scientific info on Abyssinian Purple Wheat below for those interested.

……………………………………………………

Beer Name : 10B Bock

Style : Dunkles Bock  (Lager)

7.2% abv  45ebc 33ibu

This example made specifically for #ABBF18 – usually a standard Bock with lower abv in the 5% range but its a festival and there’s good diversity in the OBB range on offer so its been left as it ended – this yeast just kept giving – dropped 10 points lower than I had expected – so its yours to enjoy. The name 10B – can you say 10 words that start with B – Some of mine shouldn’t be written here 🙂 -over to you GO!

……………………………………………………..

Beer Name : Amarilloed Armadillo

Style : APA  (Geek Alert  American Pale Ale)

5 % abv  18ebc 30 ibu

The name haha just blurted one day joking around so that’s that! This is an Amber upgraded to the APA for #ABBF18 (because we’ve enough Ambers already going here :-)) that I’ve made for years – smashed with Amarillo hops. Wasn’t that interested in making APA IPA or IIPA figured there’d be plenty on offer (think someone’s called theirs Not another F…ing Pale Ale)  but – yeah gave in.

………………………………………………….

Beer Name : Double EYEPA

Style : (hmm that’s a hard one)  IIPA

8.9 %  abv   30ebc

Yes I know said I wasn’t going to do it but gave in – for all the – HOPHEADZ –

one hundred and thirty four ibu by may calculations  – why? Over (hop) stocked

Again another yeast that just kept giving – wasn’t planning on 9%  take care guys when drinking this one, obviously should go without saying – but I will – it really is a very big beer.

…………………………………………………………..

 

Beer Name : Sinterklaus Kerstmis Bier

Style : Christmas Beer

6.6% abv  34ebc

The names probably not politically correct but I’m sure you’ve got the gist. Its July so yep Christmas in July.

The yeast used by the elves in this one will drive the dark fruit flavours through . Its been flavoured with Sultana’s, Figs, Dates, Cloves, Cinnamon, Mixed Peel, Vanilla pods and nutmeg  – only the elves know what else has managed to get in there 😉

Get some beer in ya cake!

…………………………….

 

Beer Name : Red Rye Saison

Style : Hmm – recon you’ll get it

6 % abv 25ibu

So this little number – a healthy amount of Rye and some colour into it just to add another dimension to the depth of diversity that can come from small changes and additions to the base beer.  There’s only 20lt of this little number – Just thinking there’s several in the line up with Rye in them… ENJOY!
