For eight years Deeds has been fighting the good fight. Making beer, wherever and whenever it could. And then a year and a half ago the Deeds Brewery in Glen Iris came online and we started making our beers in house finally.
It’s been quite a journey since then. We’ve seen successes and we’ve seen failures. We’ve pushed ourselves, our equipment, and our recipes to the limit with the ultimate goal of maximising the amount of flavour we can pack into a little tin can. All in the quest to do what we always said we wanted to do, “Make beer that we want to drink.”
For our Birthday beers, we decided on a two fold approach resulting in two very different beers. We wanted to push our limits even further and secondly we wanted to celebrate a culmination of all we learned. We hereby present you with the Pavlova and A Quiet Deed.
Pavlova represents a continued dedication to experimenting and pushing the boundaries. A Hazy Sour Pastry DIPA with hops, fruit (Passionfruit and Mango), lactose, and vanilla . . . essentially all the fixings. The goal with this beer was to put Pav in a can. Creamy meringue, and punchy fruit. This beer acts as a next step in our Sour IPA program, born of the Intergalactic Lovechild project – bringing the processes and flavours that come with fruit, vanilla, and lactose into the fold.
A Quiet Deeds, on the other hand, takes all the variations we’ve played with on grist and hop combination and brings them together as a sort of culmination. A culmination in the form of an 11% Oat Cream TIPA with a dry hop coming in at 45g/L (Galaxy, Vic Secret, Motueka, Citra Cryo, Strata, Idaho 7, Mosaic, and Simcoe) – how very Deeds. . .
So here we are eight years later.
The tap room is slated for the end of the year and we finalized the schedule through January – and boy oh boy do we have some exciting beers and some absolutely epic collabs on the cards. So even though its not in a packed pub, we raise our glasses to you. Without you, we wouldn’t be here.
Cheers and remember, always drink Fresh!
