Boutique, Bowral-born, Pigs Fly Pale Ale will make a bold appearance at the Boutique Wine Festival at the Museum of Contemporary Art in July.
Pigs Fly Pale Ale is micro-fermented in small batches using traditional fermenting techniques. It is an Australian style Ale which uses fresh Australian Chinook hops, Australian Six Row Barley and traditional top fermenting London ale yeast to create a full bodied beer with lots of flavour. It gives off a floral aroma and leaves a subtle lingering bitterness in the mouth which will please the beer connoisseur’s palate. At 4.6% alcohol and available in 330mL bottles, this Southern Highlands premium beer should be an interesting interlude in the otherwise wine-populated festival for Sydney’s wine lovers.
Mudgee’s De Beaurepaire Wines will be making a festival debut with their 2004 Cabernet and 2005 Shiraz Viognier made by David Lowe and Jane Wilson.
A bunch of Barossa-ites including Eighteenfortyseven, God’s Hill Wines, Heidenreich Estate, Jag Wines and Milhinch Wines will be also making their first appearance at the festival which will give the wine lovers much new product to enjoy.
At least 60 other wine companies will be represented.
