Ella Brown of Motown - Brown Ale
This luscious brown beauty is brewed in tribute to the heyday of Motown, when performances were honest and captured first or second take by the humble warmth of analogue technology.
Ella Brown of Motown offers loads of quality malty goodness with plenty of amber and dark crystal malts, a big helping of roast barley and a solid foundation of traditional ale malt. Early and late additions of Tassie's own Ella hops bring the soul to this party.
The Fifty-Eight - Australian Pale Ale
A highly sessionable Australian pale ale produced from traditional ale malt dressed with a portion of wheat and crystal malts. Generous additions of fresh Pride of Ringwood place this hop back where it belongs: in the bellies of the most discerning of Aussie drinkers.
Brewed in tribute to the most fundamental instrument of the performer's tool kit since the ‘60s: the ever-reliable '58 microphone.
