Introducing Pay Day Pale

We’ve been counting down to Pay Day this week, searching the couch for spare coins, surviving off a diet of two minute noodles, and looking to sell a kidney if necessary to get us through the final days.

And finally… we’ve reached it! Today is the launch of our newest brew called, Pay Day Pale.

Why the name? Because what’s better than that feeling of freedom when the dollars hit your account?

Pay Day is that feeling of Saturday night, the freedom to go where ever you want and do whatever you want, with no regrets. The feeling of riding on the back of a motorbike, wind in your hair – not a damn worry in the world.

This sessionable pale ale, with its light citrus and stone fruit taste and pine aroma, will remind you of that same feeling. Now you can live like it’s Pay Day, every day.

Pay Day Pale is now on tap at our Beer Hall and across Melbourne at the following venues:

Introducing Walter White

Walter White is a cross-pollination of Brewing and Distilling. The bones of Walter is an Imperial White Ale of Belgian heritage. We then infused this 7.4% ABV ale with aromatics and spices – discarded fresh from the Still at Four Pillars’ Yarra Valley distillery.

The result is a highly aromatic pale beer – with complex spices and citrus rind in the nose. Medium to light bodied, Walter is packed with esters but keeps its alcoholic strength well hidden. Walter will feature at GABS 2016

Stay tuned for availability – soon to hit some of the more interesting tap points around town. IMG_3904-a

Lazy Boy – Easy IPA

Lazy by name, Easy by nature.

Lazy Boy was made to be easy. Showcasing the attributes of American IPAs, in a really sessionable format.

Easy to drink – but not so easy to make. Balance is what makes this beer so session -able, but from the brewing side this can be challenging. Independent flavour characteristics including: bitterness, body, alcohol strength, hop flavour and malt sweetness need to harmonised.

It’s taken us eight years to work up to making an IPA, and Lazy Boy is the first new permanent beer for us in four years. For now, it’s only available on draught at Melbourne’s most discerning watering holes! Hope you enjoy it as much as we do.

Success at AIBA awards night.

Kingston based 2 Brothers Brewery receives Top Honours at 2013 Australian International Beer Awards

The awards night which was held last week is the international brewing community’s night of nights with over 700 national and international brewers in attendance. At the conclusion of an intensive week of judging, the panel awarded 2 Brothers Brewery with the coveted trophy for Champion Small Australian Brewery. The brewery also beat Weihnstephan Brewery, Germany (the world’s oldest brewery, operating since 1040AD) to win the trophy for Best European Style Lager for their lager beer called Taxi.

“This is the highest accolade achievable for breweries of our size and scale” said owner and brewer Andrew Ong. “When we started brewing in 2007, we never dreamt of receiving this level of recognition.”. Other trophy winners included Coopers Brewery (S.A) and Boston Beer Company (USA).

The competition is held annually and administered by the Royal Agricultural Society of Victoria. This year it attracted a record number of 1490 entries from 277 breweries and 35 countries. Beers were critiqued by judges from Australia, Norway, Belgium, United States, United Kingdom, Japan and NZ.

2 Brothers Brewery opened the doors to their Moorabbin based brewery in 2007. They also won trophies for Best Victorian Beer in 2009 and 2010. The brewery uses raw ingredients from Australia and around the world to hand craft a range of beer styles from light to dark. They produce roughly 2000 litres of beer each week which is sold on tap at independent Melbourne bars and pubs. The brothers’ first beer was “Taxi” which was initially designed as a stepping stone to satisfy locals who were used to drinking Fosters products. Taxi has found favour with many beer lovers and is the “house pour” at several venues around Melbourne.
