Melbourne, get ready for Rocky Ridge Brewing - this sustainable west coast brewery is bringing its beer to the east coast.
The folk at Rocky Ridge grow all their own hops, barley and wheat; they even use their own proprietary house yeast and their own rainwater, and solar panels pump electricity into the brewery to make the beer. Talk about self sufficient.
Come try these farm-grown brews at The Rose Hotel in Fitzroy (406 Napier St) from Friday to Sunday, where there'll be a six tap takeover and a few prizes to boot. Rocky Ridge owner and brewer Hamish will be there too, so have a chat about his approach to brewing over a beer or two.
