Evolution of Stockade Brew Co

 

 

How has the range of beers changed over time? What is the difference between the first beer and the latest beer?

Our core range has remained ultra consistent and looks to continue that way. We have just introduced a new member of the core range family, “Hop Splicer” which is a wickedly sessionable XPA, tinged with a touch of grapefruit. As far as our limiteds are concerned though, every single one of these have been completely different to the others. We’ve never done the same beer twice! We’re all about the journey involved with expanding our tastes and consequently the tastes of our followers. We want to show people that indie beer is the most creative, interesting, flavoursome option that’s in a constant state of evolution. We’re always looking to try something new, to think outside the box and challenge the status quo.

Our very first beer off the line was Chop Shop, a sessionable Pale Ale which packs a decent hop punch and presents an up-front tropical aroma. Our latest beer is a collaboration brew we did with Brazilian brewery Dadiva. Called “Two Bridges”, it’s a Passionfruit Session IPA bursting with tropical fruit flavour and a lick of citrus from a careful combination of hops and a hefty dose of passionfruit. At first pour, you can expect a bright coloured beer with full-on passionfruit on the nose.

We’re passionate about exploring the world of beer, and we’ve been super lucky to work on a couple of awesome collaboration brews in 2017 with Full Moon BrewWorks (Thailand’s premier Craft Brewery) where together we created “Puppet Master” ThaIPA, an IPA tinged with a touch of lemongrass and kaffir lime. We also worked closely with the SpeakEasy group before the launch of their latest venue, “Mjolner” in Sydney - a Norse-inspired bar/restaurant, to create “Odin’s Raven” - a Juniper Witbier. Of course we never rest on our laurels, so look forward to plenty more in the months and years to come!
