Holgate Seasonal Brews Now Available in Bottles

Posted by admin in flying brick apple cider   No Comments »

Holgate’s seasonal beers are now rolling off the production line at Woodend in an all-new 500mL large bottle format.

 

As part of the inaugural release of our new packaging, we are launching three seasonals and a one-off annual brew at once. The first batches off our new bottling line are the Road Trip IPA, Brick Kiln Dunkel Weizen, Nut Brown Ale, and Empress Imperial Mocha Porter.

 

We will have a series of seasonal rotating beers being released in 500mL bottles throughout the year, including the Big Reg Vienna Lager, UXB Extra” ESB, and White Ale witbier.  The Beelzebub’s Jewels Quadruppel and Double Trouble dubbel will join the Empress as annual releases in 500ml bottles.

 

We are commemorating the event with a tasting at SlowBeer in Richmond on the evening of Wednesday the 17th of October, 5:30 to 7:30. The Road Trip, Nut Brown, Dunkel and Empress will be available in bottles and on tap.

The brewers will be on hand to answer questions such as, for example, “What took you so long?”

 

Production runs are limited, so get in soon!

 

Event Details:

Holgate 500ml Launch, 17 October, 5:30-7:30, Slowbeer, 468 Bridge Road, Richmond.

Posted by admin in apple cider   No Comments »

Feature Beers

Holgate Brewhouse – Empress – Imperial Mocha Porter
Country: Australia
Size: 500ml
Alc/Vol: 10.0%

Generosity Bottled.

This beer is all about generosity. The Empress herself is rich, full-bodied, long and intense with generous but well integrated abv. It was generous of Holgate Brewhouse to offer this new vintage in a more affordable 500ml pack size. That Purvis are continuing the trend by passing the experience on to our members at this amazing price is testiment of our philosophy: to offer our members the best value always.


A RARE CRAFT EXPERIENCE FOR CONNOISSUERS

Chimay – Cinq Cents – Abbey Triple
Country: Belgium

Size: 750 ml
Alc/Vol: 8.0%

Traditional Golden Belgian

Following the success of offering this Trappist beer at a discounted price, we have decided to continue the sale for one more week only. Stock very limited

“The Chimay Triple, last-born of the Abbey, is labelled “Cinq Cents” on the 750 ml bottle. Of a golden colour, the Trappist beer combines sweet and bitter in a rare balance. The beer’s aroma felt in the mouth comes from the hops’ perfumes: above all, they are fruity touches of Muscat grapes and raisins, even ripe apples. This traditional Belgian beer is best savoured fresh at a temperature of from 6 to 8°C.”

Stunning value for Purvis Members

Journey Beer

Summer is road trip season. Just in time, Holgate have presented us with the perfect travel companion aptly named ‘Road Trip’. It’s their tribute to the US Pacific Northwest- “the spiritual home of craft beer” where the Holgate team took a beer tour back in 2009.

Weissenoher – Bonator – Doppelbock        
Country: Germany
Size: 500ml
Alc/Vol: 8.2%

Something different from an old favourite

We’ve been long time fans of the Weissenhoer Pilsner but after recently trying this, we want to share it with our members.

The ‘Bonator’ pours a bright garnet brown with a tightly packed head. A big nose of maple, toast, nuts and stone fruits lead into a beautfully balanced sweet and savoury palate true to the doppelbock style. A perfect send off to the last of the cold nights!
