It’s fresh, it’s new and best of all it’s locally sourced and brewed!
Developed exclusively for the 2018 Sydney Royal Easter Show, the ‘Show Stopper’ combines locally sourced ingredients to produce a unique and refreshing pale ale.
Grant Wearin, of Modus Operandi Brewing was looking to blend the ingredients to create an “approachable, flavourful product,” he said.
“What we’re looking for is a balanced, approachable beer that highlights the unique quality of products, which were grown and supplied in NSW.
“A product that’s fresh and really high quality.”
Supporting NSW farmers, the pale ale is brewed at Modus Operandi, Sydney NSW and made with La Trobe Malted Barley from Forbes, NSW and Ryefield Hops from Bemboka, NSW.
The fresh taste of the brew, characterised by its natural features is unpasteurised, unpreserved and contains no other additives.
“You’ll be able to taste, look and feel the freshness of the beer knowing that it’s literally been kegged out of the tank days before you’re drinking it,” he said.
“You will hopefully want more than one.”
Inspired by the uniqueness of The Stables at the Show, Kate Saba, Services Manager for the Show initiated the idea of a beer brewed exclusively for The Stables, and available only during the 12 days of the Show.
“The Stables lends itself beautifully to this project. With all the timber and the original stables from the horses we have been able to turn them into restaurants and pop up shops,” Kate said.
So if you haven’t already, make sure you head to The Stables to quench your thirst and savour a schooner of Sydney’s finest!
