Beer review — Grand Ridge Brewery

Grand Ridge Brewery Brewer’s Pilsner 330m $3.50
Grand Ridge’s original beer remains one of its most popular over the brewery bar at Mirboo North, Gippsland Victoria. It’s an assertive Czech inspired brew, big on malt, with a caramel-like richness, and cut through with the bracing, pungent aroma, flavour and lingering bitterness of Saaz hops – a robust and distinctive style.

Grand Ridge Brewery Gippsland Gold $3.50
Gippsland Gold, our favourite of the Grand Ridge brews, appeals for its velvet-smooth, malty opulence and finely balanced hops – a blend from Tasmania and New Zealand. The hops provide a subtle, tart/bitter foil to the malt, giving a dry, clean, refreshing finish but without becoming the keynote, as it does in the Pilsner.
