Hi there craft beer enthusiasts, Here at the Beer Crate we love good craft beer and March is no exception. This month brings you some Japanese hop variety Sorachi Ace from Mornington. We have an Australian and NZ collaboration from Pirate Life. Bentspoke crankshaft which has hit the ground running in Canberra and making headwind in other states now and we are also showcasing a Golden Ale from a very new brewery out of Melbourne Hack Brewing Co. I hope this months beers hit the spot as we prepare ourselves for the colder months that lie ahead.
Cheers for now....Muz 
The Beer Crate - Monington Peninsula Sorachi
MORNINGTON PENINSULA SORACHI KOLSCH
Sorachi is a Japanese hopped summer ale, this beer pours a light straw colour with compact snow white head. A clean, crisp, delicately balanced beer, this summer ale displays subtle aromas of grass and lemon, owing to the use of the Japanese hop variety Sorachi Ace. A light, smooth mouthfeel is coupled with a lemongrass tang on the palate.
Easy drinking and delicious on a hot day.

ABV: 5.2%


 
The Beer Crate - Pirate Life HopCo

PIRATE LIFE HOPCO NZ PALE ALE
In collaboration with (Tasmanian hop merchants) Hopco. The beer is an American style pale ale brewed with Pale and Munich malts to provide a smooth malty backbone to balance out the ample hops we threw at it. Hopco wanted to give some lesser known hop varieties some exposure so the following blend of hops were chosen: NZ Cascade, Motueka and Pacifica which together combine to give the beer a rich key lime pie / lemon curd cheesecake aroma and a light resinous character on the palate all backed up by a satisfying whack of bitterness.      
ABV: 4.8%

The Beer Crate - Hack Golden Ale

HACK BREWING CO GOLDEN ALE
Hack Golden is perfect blend of Pilsner and Golden Promise Malts with a clean bitterness and great malt character.  Double hopped with Amarillo Hops, it has a fruity aroma with refreshing citrus notes and a smooth malt finish. This beer will keep you coming back for more.
ABV: 4.5%
