New Beers Wrap

Modus Operandi Brewing, Silent Knight Porter

New South Wales’ Modus Operandi Brewing has added a new beer to its core range.

The brewery, based in Sydney’s Northern Beaches, has added Silent Knight porter to its lineup, which will be available in 375ml cans.

Modus Operandi first brewed the beer five years ago, and it has since won a Gold at this year’s AIBA’s.

It is brewed using nine types of malt, and was designed to be a lighter version of a Russian Imperial Stout.

The stout will be available from next week and comes in at 5.6% abv.

BentSpoke Brewing Co, Russian Imperial Stout

ACT’s BentSpoke Brewing Co is set to launch a Russian Imperial Stout.

The Stout has been aged in American oak bourbon barrels. Late in May, BentSpoke’s brewers blended the stout with a fresh Russian Imperial Stout.

The strong stouts – first introduced in the early 1800s were brewed to prevent freezing on route to Russia, which had just been opened up for trade.

BentSpoke’s Russian Imperial Stout comes in at 10% abv, and the brewer is celebrating its latest birthday with the release.

Brewmanity, Demon Brew

Brewmanity has teamed up with Melbourne Football Club to launch its latest limited edition beer, Demon Brew.

The beer was made available to order on 12th June to help raise funds for the football club.

The 4.5% abv lager is a “new age, flavour-filled beer”, based on Brewmanity’s Tango & Splash Juicy Lager which recently won silver at the Australian International Beer Awards.
