The Mountie voted No. 1 People's Choice Winner at GABS 2017

 

 

In late 2016 Stockade Brew Co began to formulate our plan for our 2017 release schedule. It’s an intense process working out the styles, names, and labels when you’re effectively putting out a new beer every month but one beer in particular, which the team always look forward to working on, is our GABS beer.

The Great Australian Beer SpecTAPular is rated as one of the Top beer festivals in the world (The Beer Connoisseur, USA) and draws a huge crowd across Sydney, Melbourne, and Auckland, featuring weird & wonderful brews from hundreds of breweries each year. In 2017, GABS was held in Melbourne on 19th - 21st May, Sydney on 27th May and Auckland 16th - 17th June. Each event asks the punters to vote for their favourite beer of the festival and after a few cracks at winning the coveted vote, Stockade Brew Co has hit liquid gold with, "The Mountie”, a 12% imperial stout laced with Maple Syrup.

The Mountie is sweet, roasty, nutty and rich. It’s a big, jet-black beer which delivers beautifully rich stout flavours. A brew to sip on and enjoy during the cooler, Winter months, this Imperial Stout has strong characters of chocolate, raisin and a hefty dose of maple. Sticking to the recipe for their award winning 2015 Imperial Stout, The Mountie pokes fun at the Royal Canadian Mounted Police and Canada’s (& the world’s) love of maple syrup!
