Good Land Brewing x 2 Crows Brewing 10,000 Miles

Style
Wild Ale

Halifax, Canada, is a mighty long way from Traralgon, Victoria. In fact, it’s an entire 10,000 miles (give or take). If you, like me have never come close to understanding anything in the imperial system of measurements, that’s around 16,100 kilometres. But distance makes the heart grow fonder and 10,000 Miles is a very special collaboration between Good Land Brewing and Canada’s 2 Crows Brewing. Taking place over FaceTime, the brew day saw Good Land’s Jimmy work with his old colleague Jeremy Taylor, with the pair having once brewed together at Stewart Brewing in Edinburgh.

To get a sense of both continents, they sourced a mix of Brettanomyces yeasts from North America while also adding Australia’s own Eclipse hops, alongside Saaz. The beer was actually brewed in July as part of Good Land’s first birthday and has spent the intervening months fermenting in stainless and sitting safely in bottles. It’s a fittingly elegant beer too, appearing in glass bottles with a cork and a cage over the brewery’s typical tins and providing a complex and delicate web of flavours to dive into. Those include funky fresh fruits like mandarin, pineapple and stonefruit, along with an underlying earthiness, bready touches and a refreshing minerality.
