Sixth col­lab­o­ra­tion

Ovens & Murray Advertiser - - NEWS -

AN in­no­va­tive Pros­ecco-style In­dia Pale Ale will be born through the sixth an­nual col­lab­o­ra­tive brew day in­volv­ing all eight brew­ers of Vic­to­ria’s High Coun­try Brew­ery Trail.

This year’s event on Septem­ber 18 will be hosted by King River Brew­ing in the King Val­ley who will be joined by Black Dog Brew­ery from Taminick, Din­ner Plain’s Bliz­zard Brew­ery, Bridge Road Brew­ers from Beech­worth, Bright Brew­ery, Ruther­glen Brew­ery, So­cial Ban­dit Brew­ing Com­pany from Mans­field and Mt Beauty’s Sweet­wa­ter Brew­ing Com­pany.

In a nod to the King Val­ley’s Pros­ecco-pro­duc­ing tra­di­tions, the brew­ers will craft an un­usu­ally dry IPA us­ing Pros­ecco yeast.

In­spired by the new Brut IPA style, which is mak­ing waves across the craft brew­ing scene in Amer­ica and Aus­tralia, the col­lab­o­ra­tive brew will meld the High Coun­try’s skill for pro­duc­ing ex­cel­lent lo­cal wine and beer.

The new brew will be pro­duced and sold un­der the High Coun­try Brew­ery Trail la­bel, Rule #47, be­fore Christ­mas.

The High Coun­try Brew­ery Trail con­tin­ues to ex­pand and more brew­eries are es­tab­lished in all cor­ners of the North East Vic­to­ria, of­fer­ing vis­i­tors a sen­sa­tional way to ex­plore the stun­ning scenery, gourmet flavours and lip-smack­ing beers of the whole re­gion.
