Prickly Moses / Odyssey Tavern Hop Series

Prickly Moses

Published January 31, 2013

All being well, in the near future the Odyssey Tavern & Brewery will become fully what it says on the tin: a tavern and a brewery. In the meantime, as work continues to get the in-house brewery up and running, the team there are having a bit of fun with one of the region's brewers, Prickly Moses. Taking advantage of the venue's hand pump, Prickly's head brewer Luke Scott has been playing around with his Otway Ale and a few hop varieties to deliver a range of tiny batch beers. Thus far, the Otway Ale has been given a twist with Mosaic hops, a new variety from the States, also known as the son of Simcoe, which Luke says delivers some lovely floral aromas. Specifically, he says he gets lavender, but he says others disagreeâ?¦ The other hop to have been used so far is the British Bramling Cross, which took the Otway ale in an ESB direction. The plan is to keep throwing these small kegs in Odyssey's direction, so there should be something to try when ever you pop in.
