Black Brewing Co has released a limited-edition range of farmhouse ales, kicking off with an Albino Pinot IPA and the return of a house favourite, the Framboise.

Black Brewing Co makes some of Australia’s most uncompromising craft beers from its home, Caves Road Collective, in Wilyabrup, in WA’s Margaret River region. Its beers tell a refreshing tale of time and place, inspired by the local region, the Indian Ocean and Western Australia’s incredible produce and people.

The Albino Pinot is Black Brewing Co’s first beer-wine co-fermentation (taking advantage of also owning a winery!) whilst as its name suggests the farmhouse Framboise is produced with local raspberries.

2018 Abino Pinot IPA

Brewing: Southern chardonnay barrels with cultured house yeast strains were used, then cooled passionfruit IPA wort and fermenting albino pinot rose lees from local winemakers LAS Vino were added.

It really is the lovechild of a brewer and a winemaker!

Tasting:  the nose has huge farmhouse funk and the palate is layered with vinous notes, candied pineapple and complex dried orchard fruits.

Hops: El Dorado, Chinook
Malt: Pale Malt
Mash: two step infusion
Bottling: by hand, all 308 of them!

Alc/vol: 7.4%

RRP A$29.99 per 750ml bottle


Black Brewing Famboise

Brewing: produced with raspberries from Torbay Farms near Albany, a combination of malts and a farmhouse yeast strain.

Tasting: Expect huge raspberry aromas, and a soft round palate with a tart finish, peach pink hues and a tight white head. The perfect share-beer that salutes the season's harvest.

Fruit: Torbay raspberries
Malt: Wheat, Pale Malt
Mash: single step infusion
Bottling: by hand, all 1200 of them! Also available in 50lt kegs

Alc/vol: 6.2%

RRP A$19.99 per 750ml bottle
