Happened to get a snap of these two brewers having a beer together on Saturday. Turns out Evan's Bruny Island Beer Co. Pepperberry Ale was the favourite beer on the weekend, and Scott's Hobart Brewing Company Houblonne Saison was a close second favourite for punters who voted. Well done guys, excellent 2016 harvest ales indeed.

We are excited to announce the release of our second beer: Deciduous IPA - brewed with fresh hops from the 2016 harvest. Autumn-hued, rich & toasty malt character, with fresh apricot and orange marmalade hop notes. Deciduous IPA was very well received at this weekend's Fresh Hop Beer Festival where it was voted equal 3rd favourite in the People's Choice, out of a strong field of 16 fresh hop beers.

Fresh Hop Beer Festival Homebrew results! We had 14 entries, which is a good amount for a first time event. Standard was pretty good too. Judging was done by Kris and Mike from The Winston, Luke from Saint John, and myself. We firstly looked at "Does this showcase hops?", and then "Is this something I'd choose to drink again?". There were some great beers that didn't really scream "hops". 1st place: Alex Lovibond's "The Galaxy is Wet!" Pale Ale 2nd place: Sam Cotton's "WH Kush" Pale Ale (also Galaxy) Honourable mention to Ivars Avens' Ghostly Harvest saison. Thanks to everyone who entered!

We had such an amazing time at Fresh Hop Beer Festival in Launceston this weekend. Hosted by the crew at Saint John Craft Beer, this festival is legit! The Saint Johns crew along with the incomparable Emma Lenck have put together one of the best beer festivals we've had the pleasure of attending. The other brewers in attendance made the weekend even more memorable and we had an amazing time at Van Dieman Brewing on Friday night with the team from the CBIA! What a weekend! Can't wait to get back to brewing some new exciting beers after meeting so many awesome punters! And hoping we can get a similar/the same festival in Hobart next year!

There's a few moves afoot (hence the radio silence of late) keep it under your hat - but The Quartermasters Arms is having its first outing Fresh Hop Beer Festival this weekend in Launceston before taking over the old Tasman Quartermasters site. Look out for a super hoppy Bruny Island Beer Co. infused cheese. We've released the menu in Chef & Sommelier formats.
