PUTTING THE CRAFT BACK INTO BREW­ING

Virgin Australia Voyeur - - VOYEUR - Visit Mo­dus Operandi at 14 Harkeith St, Mona Vale, Syd­ney. And for more, check out www.mo­brew­ing.com.au.

At Mo­dus Operandi we are, af­ter all, an in­de­pen­dent brewer — what we do is a craft, no dif­fer­ent than a cabi­net-maker or a surf­board shaper, only with an end prod­uct that’ll go bet­ter with a burger.

Whether in the notes of pas­sion­fruit and mango that burst out of our For­mer Ten­ant Red IPA, or the balance of cit­rus, fruiti­ness and a pleas­ing bit­ter­ness that makes up our award-win­ning Mo­dus Pale Ale, we’re de­ter­mined to de­liver the best.

Al­ways cold and fresh, too. Tra­di­tion­ally, with in­ter­na­tional own­er­ship and bot­tom lines in mind, cold stor­age, re­frig­er­ated trans­port and pack­aged-on dates had never been part of the brew­ing in­dus­try. But we put a date stamp on all our cans and kegs and keep them op­ti­mally chilled, so you know, whether you’re at our brew­ery in Syd­ney or in a pub, bar or lounge room around the coun­try, what you’re drink­ing is as fresh and flavour­some as if you were hav­ing it flush from the tank. Fresh­ness is the key with our beer.

For that we’ve been lucky enough to pick up a few awards. Most re­cently we were named the Cham­pion Aus­tralian In­de­pen­dent Brew­ery, Large, at the Indie Awards in July, and as a re­sult be­came the first brew­ery to win in the Small, Medium and Large cat­e­gories, all in four years.

‘It was great to get the recog­ni­tion for our hard work, par­tic­u­larly for the team and our phi­los­o­phy,’ says Grant.

It’s been quite a jour­ney from where we be­gan, but our mo­dus operandi has al­ways stayed the same — Beer First. No Short­cuts.
