Mayday Hills 'Yee-Hah! Launch

Posted: 07/10/16

Fri 14th Oct from 4pm - one night only!

We’re the SA venue for the National launch of Bridge Road’s new ‘Mayday Hills’ farmhouse label: a series of 100% Brettanomyces beers fermented in a traditional wooden foeder tank made by Foeder Crafters of America.

Mayday Hills' first release is ‘Yee-Ha!’ a 100% Brett Pale Ale:

"The beer itself isn’t what most people expect to find in a Brett beer, i.e. it isn’t goaty, horsey, or at all like any other farm animals or body parts that require the attention of a bar of soap. We’ve focussed on producing a clean beer that showcases the profile that Brett creates when in the right conditions. In this our first attempt the yeast produced big tropical and fruit esters, much like those from many Belgian strains. The texture of the beer is also typical of 100% Brett beers, that is thick almost creamy with a broad/fat mouthfeel. The beer is also quite hoppy, so it’s hard to pick where the ester and hop aromas start and finish.

That said the beer is crisp and clean, there’s influence and flavour from the oak fermenter, and also a touch of funk more typical of Brett particularly in the bottle conditioned beer."  

We’ll be pouring Yee-Hah! alongside our last keg of B2 Bomber Mach 6.0.

Kegs tapped from 4pm!
