Grand Ridge's Mirboo Specials

Grand Ridge

Released January 20th, 2011

A fresh release of Grand Ridge's two limited release beers, the Mirboo Madness and Mirboo Midnight, have just hit shelves around Melbourne. The former - a highly hopped strong Red Ale awash with big hop aromas, sweet caramel, toffee and nut flavours and plenty of bitterness - has been aging in bottles since the initial draft only release and, according to Grand Ridge founder Eric Walters (who told Crafty upon its initial release it was the beer he'd been waiting years to make), "is tasting bloody beautiful". The latter - an oak-aged dark ale packed with roasted malt, creamy chocolate and dark, treacly fruits - has spent a few more months in barrels since Crafty last tasted it. The first release was pretty special so we heartily recommend hunting it down, despite the fact summer appears to finally be here; there's bound to be a cold snap soon, after all.
