They've certainly been living up to their promise to make more beer and more beers since closing down their bar and cafe a few weeks ago. In addition to their regular, much-loved seasonal releases, Red Hill has put out a special Jubilee beer, joined forces with Mornington Peninsula for a collaboration specially for the Beers By The Bay festival and also released their first saison. They're claiming it could be Australia's only "true" saison as it's brewed on a hop farm. Whether it is or not, it's being given some unique treatment at the brewery when they open for Cup Weekend where a cask-conditioned version will be pouring through the handpump. As for the beer itself, it's: "pale, light bodied with a tart and refreshing drinkability. It has a complex nose with plenty of funky yeasty farmhouse flavours and finishes lovely and dry with the addition of [their] Tettnanger and Hallertau hops."
