We’re pleased to introduce a new small batch Australian craft beer to our portfolio!  Welcome to Cockies Beer, made by the Barrabool Hills Brewing Company, based in the hills just outside of Geelong and lead by Geelong boy and Cockies Master Brewer, Jamie Roydhouse.

Jamie practiced Pharmacy while his hobby became obsession; “The excitement I get out of brewing beer actually started many years ago (around 1970) at Pharmacy College in Parkville.  The quality of my brews at the time left much to be desired, but the alcohol content was quite high, and that was certainly the main aim of the exercise!  I’d like to think I’ve matured since then – my main aim now with my brews is to create appealing aromas, complex flavours, freshness and drinkability.  That sounds pretty mature, doesn’t it?”

Exhibiting not only the finest qualities of a classic pale ale, Cockies Ocean Road Pale Ale (4.7%) is made from a carefully selected blend of the freshest natural ingredients without preservatives – just water, malt, hops and yeast.  A unique ale that is both flavoursome and sessional, with appealing fruity and herbaceous aromas.  Light on bitterness, with hints of luscious fruits and spicy citrus, it has a refreshing clean finish.  Made with passion for you to enjoy.  Cheers!

Due August.
