New beer launch ben­e­fits Ruther­glen

The Free Press (Corowa) - - FRONT PAGE -

Ruther­glen Brew­ery is one of eight craft brew­ers as part of Vic­to­ria’s famed High Coun­try Brew­ery Trail that has launched a new beer un­der their joint Rule 47 la­bel just in time for Christ­mas.

The re­sult of the group’s sixth an­nual col­lab­o­ra­tive brew day, held dur­ing Septem­ber at King River Brew­ing in the King Val­ley, the new brew is a nod to the lo­cale’s Prosecco-pro­duc­ing tra­di­tions and in­spired by the new Brut IPA style, which is mak­ing waves across the craft brew­ing scene in Amer­ica and Aus­tralia.

Com­bin­ing the High Coun­try’s renowned skills for pro­duc­ing ex­cel­lent lo­cal wine with its craft beer-mak­ing tal­ents, this new brew is a dry beer pro­duced to the Brut IPA style us­ing sin­gle ori­gin craft malts, Vic­to­rian High Coun­try hops and a tra­di­tional Ital­ian Prosecco yeast.

It com­bines del­i­cate flavours of white wine and light hints of cit­rus from the hops in a well-hid­den 6.1 per cent ABV. The brew­ers rec­om­mend pair­ing this year’s Rule 47 with freshly caught Mur­ray cod, slapped on the ‘bar­bie’ with a dash of lime, oil and sprin­kling of fresh dill and sage.

The High Coun­try Brew­ery Trail con­tin­ues to ex­pand with craft brew­eries - King River Brew­ing in the beau­ti­ful King Val­ley, Black Dog Brew­ery in Taminick, Bl­iz­zard Brew­ery in Din­ner Plain, Bridge Road Brew­ers in Beech­worth, Bright Brew­ery, Ruther­glen Brew­ery, So­cial Ban­dit Brew­ing Com­pany in Mans­field and Sweet­wa­ter Brew­ing Com­pany in Mount Beauty.

The trail of­fers vis­i­tors a sen­sa­tional way to ex­plore the stun­ning scenery, fan­tas­tic cy­cling of­fer­ings, gourmet flavours and award-win­ning beers of the north-east of Vic­to­ria.

Each year, the brew­ers of the Vic­to­rian High Coun­try come to­gether to cre­ate a col­lab­o­ra­tion beer.
