Ocho Beer comprises Stu the brewer, and Will the clever one. Ocho came about because we love beer, and thought that brewing unique beers and sending them directly to beer lovers was a great concept.
Ocho means eight in Spanish and, apart from being a great word, it is also the number of bottles you'll find in a box of Ocho Beer.
We offer a different beer every month, focusing on using fantastic local ingredients to make beers that are simple and delicious. Each beer will be available from our website until sold out, so what we offer is always changing.
We are proudly based in Launceston, Tasmania.
We offer a different beer every month –
Issue 01 - Barrel Saison
Brewed with wheat & oats, and fermented in a whiskey barrel. Spicy and refreshing, with a hint of oak, this is a liquid farewell to summer.
This beer spent about 1 month in oak before dry-hopping and then packaging. We then stored it cold for nearly 3 months resulting in a beautifully clear and crisp beer.
5.5% abv, bottled 21st Dec 2015, released 1st April 2016.
Issue 02 - Deciduous IPA
(fresh hop rye IPA)
Brewed using fresh hops within 24 hours of being harvested from Bushy Park in Tasmania's south. The Rye IPA base has a rich and toasty malt character, to which the generous hop additions add lifted apricot and Seville orange notes.
The main hop is an experimental variety known only as HPA-035 which adds spicy and citrus character, as well as Ella, a variety which adds stonefruit and floral notes.
5.9% abv, bottled 11th Apr 2016, released 23rd April 2016.
