The art and craft of brew­ing beer

McIvor Times - - NEWS - By GUS MCCUBBING

A LO­CAL brew­ery showed off its first in-house made pale ale, lager and IPA to the joy of craft beer afi­ciona­dos last week.

Palling Bros di­rec­tor and brewer Peter Pichut said the re­lease fol­lowed the brew­ery com­ing on­line with its high­tech equip­ment and nat­u­ral gas.

‘‘We have in­vested heav­ily in the lat­est brew­ing tech­nol­ogy, and nat­u­ral gas be­ing quick to heat with pre­cise tem­per­a­ture con­trol, makes it the best en­ergy source for brew­ers,’’ he said.

‘‘We looked at other en­ergy sources but found nat­u­ral gas of­fered greater ef­fi­ciency, con­trol and con­ve­nience.’’

But nat­u­ral gas was also cho­sen, Mr Pichut said, for the com­fort of his pa­trons.

‘‘In these cold con­di­tions we of­ten have guests com­ment on how warm the en­tire bar area is — we placed ra­di­ant panel heaters through­out the bar area and I think when the temp drops out­side, the warmth is def­i­nitely an added bonus,’’ he said.

Palling Bros Brew­ery, open Thurs­day to Sun­day from 11 am, is at 168 High St, Heath­cote.

Palling Bros di­rec­tor Peter Pichut says they have in­vested heav­ily in the lat­est brew­ing tech­nol­ogy.
