Catchment are keen to capture those traditional Christmas flavours and feelings with a couple of keg-only releases, available at Catchment in West End and Fortitude Brewing on Mount Tamborine.
Silly Saison is a mid-strength saison with cherry and star anise. The brewer’s tasting notes describe it thus: “Dark cherries provide a complex fruity undertone that develops as the beer warms in the glass. The high carbonation coupled with the spicy character presented by the yeast combine to provide an exceptional easy-drinking beer.”
Oh Crumbs! is a nitro gingerbread ale with ginger, cinnamon and nutmeg, of which they say: “The experience of nostalgia coupled with those classic gingerbread flavours really make this beer something special. A solid and not too sweet malt base builds to a tasty ginger, cinnamon and nutmeg delight that will both warm the heart and ease your mind. It's a gingerbread house feeling without being overbearing, allowing you to enjoy many with your favourite holiday treats.”
Mick is on the Sunshine Coast for the festive period so was unable to pop in to try the beers himself.
