Another ‘limited edition’ beer is launched
Small Victorian brewer East Ninth Brewing has launched its new ‘limited edition’ Doss Blockos Dark Lager for this winter. The Company expects its 10,000 numbered bottles will sell quickly.
East Ninth Brewing describes the limited edition brew as an “all-natural beer”, created in traditional Doss Blockos style. Through an extended maturation process, Doss Blockos Dark Lager is brewed using five different malts (pilsner malt, crystal malt, crystal wheat, chocolate malt, and Caramunich type two).
Calling the limited edition brew “a beverage for those of a more discerning taste”, East Ninth Brewing said the Doss Blockos Dark Lager “delivers pronounced tones of roasted coffee and dark chocolate, and a little burnt caramel as the bottom of the glass approaches”.
The Company said Doss Blockos was inspired by the New York squatting movement of the 1990s and the Doss Blockos label art started life as illegal street art in an alley in the Melbourne suburb of Fitzroy, painted by local artist Irk.
East Ninth products are stocked at over 4,000 restaurants, bars and bottle shops around Australia.
Australian Food News recently reported the launch of Coopers Brewery Extra Strong Vintage Ale. It seems smaller brewers are able to market their products with attributes of premium quality combined with the obvious rarity from a short production run.
