NON DESCRIPT MULTI COLOURED CANDY PHILLY SOUR ALE 5.1%

This keg only release was originally brewed as a 20L pilot in early 2021 and was uber popular. The demand to brew it on a large scale was real.

We have called this Philly Sour ‘Non descript multi-coloured candy philly sour ale’ as we don’t really have time to go to trial, however we are sure you can figure out what popular lollies we put 20kgs of into this awesome brew.

LOUISVILLE KENTUCKY COMMON 4.9%

Block ‘n Tackle have been digging about in the forgotten depths of the BJCP style guide and came up with this Kentucky Common, dubbed Louisville.

Louisville is a darker-colored, light-flavored, malt-accented beer with a dry finish and interesting character malt flavors. Refreshing due to its high carbonation and mild flavors, and highly sessionable due to being served very fresh and with restrained alcohol levels.”

LOOLOO's IRISH COFFEE STOUT 5.0%

First brewed as a St. Patricks Day taproom pilot release in March 2021, many locals at the taproom have been begging us to brew this on a large scale so we have done them a solid. 

This brew has a traditional Dry Irish Stout recipe but we have loaded it with 10kgs of lactose for some sweetness along with 65L of coffee (Private Blend) thanks to our friends at LooLoo’s. Now you can have the best of both worlds, coffee and beer!

 

ECLIPSE SMASH JUICY PALE ALE 4.9%

ALABAMA AMBER ALE 4.4%

A steamship built in 1889 in Blackwall by Rock Davis, Alabama was the trusted vessel to convey Rock’s coffin from Blackwall to his resting place at St Pauls in Kincumber. We’ve blended Cascade, Centennial and Simcoe hops to create some bold, fruity citrus aroma and flavour notes. This hop flavour is carefully balanced by a smooth malt profile which includes a generous amount of crystal malt to deliver the deep reddish/amber hue and the residual malt sweetness.

HENRY PIPER ENGLISH IPA 5.8%

Henry Piper is a celebration of the original IPA. Henry Piper differs from our Core Range IPA ‘Jon Piper’ in that it strikes more of a balance between the malt and hops for a more rounded flavour. Expect earthy, floral hop tones with fruity hints from the English Yeast.

This brew pays tribute to the cousin of Jon Piper and fellow shipwright Henry Piper.

ALCHYMIST WC-IPA 6.1%

What can we say about Alchymist? This beer is not for the weak. The hop profile of this beast packs a bitterness that will literally punch you in the face. 

The best thing about the Alchymist is it’s a bit of a fun experiment, some hops go in are from labelled bags, and others are a mystery! This makes for an exciting end product as we never know what to expect!

ZEPHYR DRY IRISH STOUT 4.1%

Block ‘n Tackle honour all that is Irish with our Zephyr Dry Irish Stout. Made with a blend of 3 malts this one is for the fans of the dark arts with loads of coffee, chocolate and dry roasted flavours. Combine this with a slightly lower mash temperature this stout is light of body, but full of flavour. We’ve used an ale yeast and a fractionally warmer fermentation temperature to produce the slightly fruity ester delivering a little sweetness to balance the dryness of the malt.
