Flat Rock Brew Cafe Pale Ale

Flat Rock Brew Cafe

Released September 28th, 2018

Being the epitome of a brewpub, Flat Rock has never much bothered with packaging its beer. In the past, they’ve hand bottled some of their barrel aged stuff, and you can always get growler fills, but otherwise theirs has been a tap only proposition. But everyone’s putting their beer in cans these days, so if you can’t beat ‘em…

They got in touch with their mates at Hope Estate and have had a crack at packaging a version of their longstanding Henry Lawson pale ale. It’s a beer that’s a fair bit darker than your average Aussie pale, hinting that it’s different in character too, one that’s more focused on the malt and with a touch more sweetness. Instead of the vibrant tropical fruit salad hop characters pursued by so many modern pales, this channels something a little deeper, something more of citrus and spice.

Given their limited number of taps and the breadth of beer styles they try their hand at producing – not to mention their commitment to always having a couple of cask ales pouring on any given day – there are times when they’ve not had their own crowd pleasing pale ale on hand. With a steady supply of tinnies there should be no such problem, with the bonus feature of being able to take ‘em straight from their fridge to yours.
