‘EXILE IPA’ NOW ON TAP!

At Temple Brewing Company, on Friday July 17 at Midday, we tap the first keg of the EAST COAST BREWERS UNION ‘EXILE IPA’. It’s been a long time coming, and for those that don’t remember what this is all about, ‘Exile IPA’ is a collaboration beer between 11 breweries that came together to make a positive out of a negative. ‘Exile IPA’ is an east coast IPA, true to style weighing in at 5.7%. The combination of Comet and Melba hops has produced a spicy bitterness leading into fresh aromas of Passionfruit, Grapefruit and Summer Berries. If you’re completely in the dark about the back story, check out this article on The Crafty Pint that sums it all up: http://craftypint.com/event/8873/Eastern-Coast-IPA-Collaboration-at-Temple-Brewing For interstate friends, keep an eye out for bars in Sydney & Tassie announcing when they’re tapping their kegs. For our Melbourne friends, see you...

WEEKEND UPDATE! NEW BEER!

WEEKEND UPDATE: NEW BEER! We had the pleasure of collaborating with and brewing a beer for The Royal Mail Hotel, Dunkeld. The beer is ready, and after a successful launch event held at Temple Brewing Company, the beer is ready for you to try! The beer? An Autumn Lemon Verbena & Pink Peppercorn Belgian Witbier named ‘Seasons Harvest’ and sits at 4.5%. The Lemon Verbena & Pink Peppercorns were harvested from the Royal Mail’s kitchen gardens and we couldn’t be happier with how its turned out! It’s pours pale straw in colour and has a very distinct and welcoming citrus/sherbet aroma from the Lemon Verbena. A smooth and crisp mouth feel is later accompanied by a berry sweetness and finishes with a peppery/earthy warmth. This is an extremely limited release, and besides The Royal Mail hotel, Temple Brewing Company is the only other venue to have this, get in while you can. We’re open! Friday: 12pm-11pm Saturday: 12pm-11pm (Collab Brew Day – FREE EVENT) Sunday: 12pm-9pm (Now open for dinner) Bookings aren’t essential but appreciated.

Eastern Coast IPA – Collab Brew Day! Sat May 2!

Breweries from Queensland, New South Wales, Tasmania and Victoria are joining forces at Temple Brewing on May 2 to create a collaboration brew with a difference. All of the breweries in attendance have experienced significant problems with a supplier and are coming together with the “common goal of making a positive out off a negative, to prove what the industry is really about.” The brew day is open to the public and will see the brewers create an “Eastern Coast IPA” which they will then sell on to raise funds to help cover their losses. The collaboration idea was put forward by Glenn Harrison, head brewer at Temple, after he discovered a number of small Australian businesses were in a similar – or worse – situation to them. Breweries and businesses in attendance on the day include: Temple, Melbourne The Winston, Hobart Rutherglen Brewery, Rutherglen Shark Island, Sydney Barrier Reef Brewery, Cairns Rogue Wave Brewery, Surf Coast Boneyard Brewing, Melbourne Bruny Island Brewery, Tasmania Bale-Worker Project Brewery, Melbourne White Lies Brewing, Brisbane Asahi, Laverton The brewery will be open to all on the day so join the beer community as they rally to make something good of a bad situation. Doors open to the public from 12pm with a spit roasting in the beer garden and beer specials throughout the...

NEW DATE! THURS FEB 26!

7000 years ago, in ancient Mesopotamia, the cradle of civilisation, something amazing happened. Something that would change the world forever. Something that would save lives, empower women, enhance the quality of life and lubricate the gears of society. This magnificent, golden elixir of life, they called ‘beer’. Australia’s premier musical comedy duo, Dave and Ern from ElbowSkin are well known in the beer industry for their anthemic beer songs. They’ve travelled the world, sampling the finest ales, and they’ve returned with a passion to inspire others about this ancient artform. Join us at Temple Brewing Co. for the first installment of ‘From Beer To Eternity – The Dinner Series’. You’ll be treated to the full ‘From Beer To Eternity’ experience and delighted with a 3 course meal prepared by Temple’s chefs, paired with Temple’s finest beers with every course!
