CAVALIER / CALIBRE
CALIBRATOR ● 7.9% ABV ● Draft/330ml Bottles
During Good Beer week in May 2015 we visited Cavalier and brewed our first ever collaboration beer. The Calibrator is a 7.9%, version of one of our favourite styles, the traditional Bavarian Doppelbock. Doppelbock (literally meaning "double bock") is a stronger and usually darker version of a Bockbier. It is exceptionally malty, with very little bitterness. The style emerged in the late eighteenth century as a variant of the old monastic strong beer, the monks "liquid bread," which they traditionally brewed for the Lenten season. Doppelbock often have "-ator" added to their beer's name as a signpost of the style. A strong and rich lager. A bigger version of a traditional bock. Strong malt aroma with a light noble hop presence. Deep gold in colour with a large, creamy, persistent head. Rich and malty with toasty notes. Clean and crisp with a dry finish. Smooth, warming and well balanced.
BROUHAHA / WOOLLY MAMMOTH / CALIBRE
STRAWBERRY RHUBARB SOUR ● 4.2% ABV ● Draft/Cans
Strawberry and Rhubarb Kettle Sour
Originally brewed for Brewsvegas 2017. Strawberry Rhubarb Sour is a kettle sour beer made using Maleny Dairies natural yoghurt as the souring culture. Then stewed rhubarb and strawberries were added into the fermenter during secondary fermentation. The resulting beer is light pink in colour and has strawberries on the nose but the taste is anything but sweet. Strong berrry flavours develop into sour rhubarb and finish nice and dry.
CAVALIER / MOONLIGHT MEADERY / CALIBRE
BRAGGOT ● 6.7% ABV ● 330ml Bottle/Draft
During last years Good Beer Week that coincided with a visit from Michael Fairbrother from Moonlight Meadery, we all got together at Cavalier Brewing to create a unique experience. A collaboration beer with Cavalier, Moonlight Meadery and Calibre Craft Beer. Rich malt flavours and balanced complex sweetness from the Mornington Peninsula Honey and 12 months of ageing make this Braggot bold, unique and very limited.
