WA Beer News #16

There is a lot of stuff happening in WA’s craft beer scene that it’s genuinely hard to keep up with all the new beer releases and WA really is kicking ass when it comes to craft beer and so I thought I’d try and make a regular feature out of all the new beery goodness our state has to offer.

The girl+beer Facebook page has a list of upcoming beer events that you might find worth subscribing to!


NEW BEERS

Feral Brewing Trumpaloma

  • 7.3 percent ABV
  • American IPA x Paloma (a tequila and grapefruit soda cocktail)
  • Collaboration brew with El Grotto
  • Limited release
  • Available only on tap

Brewed with a recently released hop blend ‘Fortnight’ and infused with loads of Grapefruit and a touch of Lime, this is a grapefruit punch in the face with a juicy mouthfeel and finishes with a lingering bitterness just like the US presidential election.

Black Brewing Black XPA

  • 6.0 percent ABV
  • Very limited release – 120 cartons and 20 kegs

Hoppy and black, Simcoe lupulin powder, Eureka and Denali hops plus some Carafa malt for subtle coffee and chocolate notes.

Otherside Brewing Social Classic Lager

  • 4.7 percent ABV
  • Available in cans and on tap

“We didn’t really want to make a ‘craft’ lager as such so we are aiming more for an every man’s beer,” says Kyle, Otherside Brewing rep. It is a Helles style beer and is available in 375ml cans and on tap.

EAGLE BAY BREWING AMERICAN AMBER ALE

  • 6.2. percent ABV
  • Single Batch – limited to just 1,000 litres
  • Available only on tap

Brewed with Chinook and Azaca hops, the brewer’s notes promise “tropical fruits and piney hops” along with “complex malt characters of sourdough and biscuit.”

Blasta Brewing Mosaic Pale Ale

  • 5.4 percent ABV
  • Limited release
  • Available only on tap

Blasta are not letting a little thing like not having a brewery get in the way of making beer. Brewer and founder Steve Russell got into the brewery at Last Drop to brew this pale ale. The beer will be available on tap only and you can find the beer via the Now Tapped app.

COMING SOON

White Lakes Brewing Instagram shows they’ve got an Oktoberfest beer in the pipeline!

Otherside Brewing have made a small batch, just 50 kegs, of an American style Stout to be released early next week. They’re promising big roasty flavours and “definitely not a sweet stout by any stretch.” It will be available on tap only and with just 50 kegs it won’t last long!

Gage Roads have hinted at a collaboration with Whipper Snapper on their WA Instagram.

Bright Tank Brewing, who are hoping to open in early next year, have been hanging out with Boston Brewery to collaborate alongside Artisan Brewing for their ‘Urban Farmer Saison’.

The word is out, a new bottle shop and bar is coming to West Leederville in February 2018 and it’s called Besk and comes to us from Mane Liquor‘s Elliot Moore and architect Ben Braham.
