Ses­sion goes down well

McIvor Times - - TRADES & SERVICES GUIDE - By KENJI SATO

THE Shi­raz Repub­lic held their in­au­gu­ral Sun­day Ses­sion event on Septem­ber 24, show­cas­ing live mu­sic, a pop-up food stall and an ex­cuse to launch a cou­ple of new ex­per­i­men­tal beers.

The first of these was a Wet Hop IPA, brewed by their on-site brew­ery, Cor­nella Real, with the help of lo­cal hop grow­ers Skull Gully Hops.

Cor­nella Real x Skull Gully Wet Hop IPA was well re­ceived on tap through­out the day, with many cus­tomers tak­ing away bot­tled sam­ples.

Also re­leased was a ver­sion of Cor­nella Real’s Ex­tra Spe­cial Bit­ter, named Ex­tra Spe­cial ESB, which has been ma­tured for three months in exshi­raz French oak.

Both beers proved to be worth­while spe­cial­ity re­leases to go along­side their core beer range.

Live mu­sic was pro­vided by lo­cal mu­si­cian Jimmy Ste­wart, along­side friends Steph Brett and Michaela Alexan­der.

Brewer Matt swapped his mash pad­dle for a spat­ula and made some great burg­ers for lunch and din­ner – while at­ten­dees were able to chat to both the brew­ers and hop grow­ers.

‘‘We had a great turnout, the new re­leases were well re­ceived and we will def­i­nitely be host­ing many more events over the coming months,’’ brewer and wine­maker Spencer Page said.

The Shi­raz Repub­lic’s Sun­day Ses­sions will be a monthly event at their cel­lar door

The event was a show­case for live mu­sic.
