What a journey this has been… A number of years ago we laid down a challenge to ourselves. A discussion was had as to why grapes were always considered superior when it came to fermented beverages … Ashley assured the crowd that he could achieve the same complexity with carrots … I mean, pumpkins!
So behold a wild fermented brew of 50% whole, locally grown pumpkins & 50% malted Tasmanian barley. Our very first pumpkin brew was in 2016 and we followed up again in 2017 & 2018. Each had its own individual character but we felt that a blend of the three, each barrel-aged individually, achieved the souring complexity we were looking for. Forget all the American Halloween bullshit, THIS is what fermented pumpkins should taste like … and it will surprise you! – Two Metre Tall
A wild-fermented ale of malted grains and Derwent Valley grown pumpkins. This is a blend of three different seasons aged individually in oak barrels in Two Metre Talls farmhouse brewery before blending. A blend of 2016, 2017 and 2018.
