We are very excited to share that our Jester King Brewery Collab was released at their brewery this weekend. Costa travelled there in April this year and worked together with the esteemed JK crew to create Song of Binding. We are not sure how much of this will make it to Australia & we will certainly keep you posted. We would like to thank everyone at JK for their hospitality, Costa had a blast getting to know & work with you all - happy to see this released.
In the tradition of French brewers of old, we took whatever malts & hops we had left at the beginning of spring and created a special spring beer. Costa explains further below. Introducing La Sirène Bière de Printemps now available (draught only)
We are absolutely thrilled to see our collaboration with the stylin' masters of foraging Fonta Flora Brewery available at their Brewery in Morganton North Carolina. A meeting of the minds very much drove this collaboration called ‘’A Rustic Migration’’ with the inspiration being to showcase Fonta’s unique wild yeast along with locally grown malts to create an Apalachian style rustic wild ale. We had a great time at the Fonta Flora Brewery and it was a real buzz to see how Todd & the crew operate this left of centre brewery; was right up our alley. Expect this bottle conditioned mixed ferment Saison to be a hazy straw colour with a wonderfully-driven midplate dry and finish with a noble hop aromatic through the dry hopping. Thanks for your wonderful hospitality Todd & the team at Fonta Flora Brewery and we look forward to hosting you down here at our left of centre brewery in Melbourne! We will be trying to get some of these beauties down here in Oz so stay tuned..
