Hi Brewers,

Hope you've enjoyed a few beers even through the Big Freeze!

The Joags Premium was so popular as beer of the month (BOM) that it has been rewarded with the new name of Triple Horn Premium.

The French and American beers went down well, with Froggie Ale the top choice and Gopher Genuine Draft not far behind. Amber Steam made a late arrival but impressed an American visitor, among others, and is still available for those who haven't tried it yet.

The Raj Pale Ale was popular with those enjoying an IPA style beer, while the Wicked Wombat Ale has just hit the tap and is a good choice to finish off winter with if you like a classic English Ale.

The most exciting arrival is Horny Wombat's all new HOPPING WOMBAT PALE ALE - a hoppy, bitter beer with full flavour. Its sneak tastings have got fantastic responses and its official launch is on International Beer Day – Friday 8th August.

For some beery fun you don't have to venture too far this month. Just head up the Sunshine Coast on Saturday August 29th for the Noosa Craft Beer Festival where you can try more than 80 different beers and ciders showcased by 20 brewers. Noosa Festival

Finally, are you in the Ekka mood yet? No? Funny that! Sure you will be after you've tasted Horny Wombat's Ekka Special Lager. You're excused for thinking that's a typo as hopefully you will find this an Extra Special Beer of the Month. So drop in to sample a glass and give your verdict.

The Ekka Special and other beers are available for share brews in kegs/bottles plus in 6 packs & cartons from only $15. Please enquire for more info.
