Two of WA's more innovative beer businesses have come together as one to create a rather unique beer.
The team from beer-centric Perth restaurant Baby Mammoth travelled to Rocky Ridge in the state's southwest to create, wait for it, a chutney beer.
As they explain: "This was a chance to do something different and stir the pot a little bit!"The beer was created with Red Earth hops grown at Rocky Ridge Farm. This is a new Aussie variety that hasn't been used on a commercial level before. It's a new Australian breed we're told has "a decidedly spicy, woody aroma and flavour with a citrusy under note."
The beer's launch will kick off with a five-course dinner curated by the Baby Mammoth team with the following beers paired with chef Ryan Lambson's food:
- Ace Pale Ale
- Sour Buffalo
- Dr Weedy
- Inglorious Chutney
Rocky Ridge founder Hamish Coates will be on hand too.
Tickets cost $65pp with food and drinks included.
NB: Dietary restrictions and requests will be difficult to fulfil. Please contact us before purchasing to ask us about arrangements.
Look out for a Beer Food piece featuring Baby Mammoth co-founder and chef Ryan before the dinner too.
