We've partnered with Ryefield Hops to release “Perennial”, a freshly hopped limited edition small batch Rye IPA, created with a “garden-to-glass” philosophy.
The fresh Chinook hop cones used in this beer were family grown on the NSW Far South Coast in Bemboka and picked less than 24 hours prior to being added to the brew. The Perennial will be released annually using fresh hops.
The Perennial is an approachable IPA with firm upfront bitterness, backed up with strong resinous piney flavour and aroma. An easy drinking IPA, with dry finish that reveals hints of spice from the Rye malt. Crafted using Gladfield, New Zealand's finest malt, this is the first of many fresh hopped beers from Beer Creative.
The farm is designed and developed using permaculture principles with a spray-free philosophy. The hops yard is designed to maximise rainfall events by integrating swale drains along the contours above the mounds, using organic compost sourced from a worm farm in Canberra that collects commercial and residential waste, and no-waste policy with all foliage fed to the beef cattle on the property.
