BEERS OUT AND ABOUT

DIAMOND JUBILEE BRITISH IPA

Inspired by our trip to the motherland and all things British, we have created a celebratory Diamond Jubilee British IPA. 
Based on the original recipe of one of the earliest British IPAs sent to fortify the British in the colonies in the early 1800s, this is a traditional British IPA brewed with plenty of hops and whopping alcohol of 5.5% (well whopping for the British!).  It is certain to survive the long sea voyage back to Queen Liz for her to toast her Diamond Jubilee!!!
Featuring a 500ml English style bottle and the official emblem of the Diamond Jubilee, this beer is one for the connoisseur. 
As this is a true “Real Ale” it is cask conditioned and served from traditional English casks using our handpump at the brewery. 
This beer is tasting superb and is a testament to our philosophy of brewing the best in European styles that are eminently sessionable

Drinking beautifully now on the handpump at the brewery and special souvenir edition bottles from next week at quality craft beer stockists around Melbourne.

DOUBLE BARREL TEMPTATION

Almost a year ago, we swapped a recently used chardonnay barrel with a local winemaker for a few beers, we spiked the wood with some fine gin, and filled the barrel with Temptation. Its been in hiding ever since. The flavour of the gin and hints of wood have mixed in with the powerful nature of the Temptation – Tempted?

Available now at the brewery, and a special guest star at this years Secret Stash on 21/22 July

IMPERIAL STOUT 8.1% – WINTER SEASONAL RELEASE

Our most anticipated seasonal release and the most highly acclaimed. This beer is Jet Black and one to be savoured. The mouth feel is silky smooth, the nose has roasted malt and a touch of caramel. A rich deep mocha and coffee flavour, is accentuated with caramel and smoky flavours. Our Willamette and Goldings hops were used in 3 additions to create an ale with a big bitterness and an assertive hop character.

Available on tap & in bottles at the brewery & all our usual quality craft beer stockists from 7th June

Taps: Royston Hotel, The Local Taphouse, Atticus Finch, Junction Hotel, Terminus (Clifton Hill), Beer Deluxe and bxtie Bones who also have a keg of 2011 they have cellared.

NOW BREWING… WEIZENBOCK
OUR TALL, DARK & STRANGE GERMAN, KEEPING US WARM TODAY IN THE BREWHOUSE

The Portland Hotel

Posted by admin in local apple cider   No Comments »

In the late 1800s and early 1900s, fresh beer was carried from the local pub to one’s home by means of a small-galvanized pail. Rumor has it that when the beer sloshed around the pail, it created a rumbling sound as the CO2 escaped through the lid, thus the term “growler” was coined.

You can now take home our freshly brewed beer in your own James Squire Brewhouse Growler.

For more info contact us at theportlandhotel@opdc.com.au

BEERS OUT AND ABOUT

WEIZENBOCK 7.9% STRONG DARK GERMAN WHEAT BEER

Our tall, dark and strong German. One batch only, brewed by popular request, out and about in Melbourne NOW.

This Dark wheat beer presents deep rich toasty chocolate and nut characters, created by our blend of Vienna, Chocolate and Wheat malts. It is highly carbonated for a soft delicate mouthfeel, and we use traditional wheat beer yeasts to develop clove and banana aromatics. The sweet characters and high alcohol of this style are balanced subtly by our own Tettnanger and Halletauer hops.

Available on tap & in bottles at the brewery this weekend & all our usual quality craft beer stockists.

Taps: Grumpy’s Green and Belgian Beer Cafe Eureka
