Had to drop my eldest daughter off at the shops today and I had been meaning to drop into this brewery for a while now.
Was super impressed by the line up and quality of beers. No fad beers, just your old school line ups that suit me to a tee, was a shame I was driving. Adam the owner/brewer was more than happy to have a chat with the locals about their beers or anything brewing. I took some lazy notes on the paddle I ordered. Pale Ale 3.5% Non offensive, gentle malt on the nose, bright clarity, low bitterness, light body, gentle hop presence very slight astringent in finish almost negligible for mid strength beer. All over well rounded mid strength ale , gateway craft session beer. Mild bitter 3.2 Mild malt and slight diacetyl on nose. English malt, slightly overtaken by diacetyl that leads to slight oily slick in finish. Slightly thin/watery , low body does not balance with limited English hop presence. Still a nice mild but could do with some English grainmalt richness. Red IPA fruity hops and rich malt on the nose. Slight hop driven haze. Great balance between body, malt and hops. Gentle grassiness from late/dry hop, no astringency. Well crafted red ale. Stout 5.2% Dark malt sweetness on the nose. Rich malt bordering on porter, lacking roastiness but delicious malt balance that could easily make a session beer.
White Brick can cater for functions, brew clubs , have a delicious smoked food menu. Growler and Cornie keg fills available.
I dropped in yesterday for a paddle comprising Pale Ale, Pilsner, Radler, and Red IPA. None had particularly strong flavours, but none were offensive either. The view is surprisingly good for an industrial area and it would be easy to waste an afternoon there, especially if I lived closer.
My favourite of the day was Ocean, which is a limited release of no particular variety that's raising money for a local ocean conservation group. I took a six-pack of that home with me for later.
