    Bruny Island Beer Co. Lighthouse Ale

    $7.00 each

    5757a3f0777a421de3000f37-thumb-256x256

    Lower strength beers have not traditionally sat comfortably in the imaginations of craft beer drinkers or brewers. Low alcohol is presumed to be analogous with low flavour and thus life, some say, is too short to drink light beer.

    We believe it is time for this perception to change.

    Lighthouse Ale is named after the famous Cape Bruny Lighthouse, which has stood on the edge of the wild Southern Ocean since 1938. Robust malty flavours are balanced by firm bitterness in this dark amber ale. Late additions of three Tasmanian aromatic hop varieties deliver subtle fruity and floral notes. We hope that our Lighthouse Ale can be a shining beacon of flavour that defies the sea of conformity! 2.8% abv

    Bruny Island Beer Co. Oxymoron 500ml

    $9.50 each

    What defines a dark ale? The words literally reference one end of a colour spectrum, yet the idea of dark beer often seems to carry a lot of baggage. We have crafted a challenge to any such preconceptions with our signature dark beer: a quaffable pale ale in drag. Built on a base of Tasmanian Westminster malted barley, Oxymoron is brewed with generous additions of malted wheat and rye, delivering spicy flavours, a textural lift and a dry finish, balanced by the richness of Crystal and Munich malts. Hefty additions of Enigma, Cascade and Willamette hops grown at Bushy Park contribute a pungent mélange of fruity, spicy and woody flavours and aromas.

    Bruny Island Beer Co. Farm Ale 500ml

    $9.50 each

    56d8d67e52ba0b4ea40528a1-thumb-256x256

    Farm Ale is the first brew from us in our new brewery, Bruny Island Beer Co. This beer is unique and made entirely with Tasmanian grain, hops and water. Our flagship session ale is pale golden and naturally hazy, with a silky texture and sweet, nutty undertones. The foundation of this truly local brew is pale malted Westminster barley from farms in the Tasmanian midlands, oats from Kindred Organics in the coastal hills of the North-West and red wheat from fields overlooking the d’Entrecasteaux Channel just up the road from us on Bruny Island.

    McHenry’s Dry Gin by Bill McHenry 700ml

    $85.00 each

    526890bfc566d75e6400850e-thumb-256x256

    It scares me how much I like gin. With tonic is obligatory but when the gin is this good, I also like to sip it straight. Bill McHenry is typical of so many great producers in Tasmania in how he seamlessly metamorphosed from an executive into an artisan. His distillery, the southern most in Australia, is where he makes this gin as well as vodka and a pretty decent whiskey. But, for my money, the gin is his best. It’s not at all rough or spirit like the bad stuff, instead it is packed-full of flavour from all the botanicals he uses. Citrus peel is present and balanced with a small amount of star anise, coriander seeds, cardamon and orris root all beautifully balanced with the juniper. This is a lesson in how good gin can be.

    Sloe Gin from Bill McHenry 200ml

    $50.00 each

    51d4eaf5c566d7045d02dc1f-thumb-256x256

    You might have seen us making sloe gin on the recent series of Gourmet Farmer. Sloes are an ancient variety of plum. They were planted by the early settlers as hedgerows around Evandale, near Launceston. The fruits are tiny, dark blue things that are mostly stone and a lesson in astringency. To make sloe gin, each sloe needs to be pricked a few times – painstaking work – and then allowed to steep in gin and sugar for up to a year before being racked. This version is made on the Tasman Peninsula by Bill McHenry, who also distils the gin from scratch.

    A smooth and rounded brandy distilled from true English cider apple varieties, grown in Wilmot, Tasmania, by John and Ruth Cole.

The delicate apple aromas and fruit flavours are enhanced by sensitive maturation in French oak. This is something to sip on as the days get shorter and you need a bit of fortification before you jump into a cold bed.
