At Doctor’s Orders Brewing they love malt, hops and smoke. With their new Spring Seasonal they’ve also added another favourite, fire. Fire to heat volcanic rocks that they dropped into the kettle which super-heated our sweet wort. The super-heated volcanic rocks when dunked into the wort imparted a luscious caramel and toffee profile with a hint of smoke marrying perfectly with the Irish Red base with a bonus of 7% alcohol.
Doctor’s Orders Brewing is all about special thought provoking and inspirational beers released seasonally, with availability across Australia currently on draft (including growler fills at specialty liquor stores) and 500mL bottles. The ethos is simple, produce beers that are intriguing based on emerging, historical and/or rare styles often with a twist but always with balance that enables you to have more than one.
DID YOU KNOW?
Doctor’s Orders is affectionately referred to as a cuckoo brewer. The analogy with a cuckoo is that they don’t have their own brewery (cuckoos take over other birds nests to lay their eggs). Doctor’s Orders take over their mates’ breweries to personally produce their beers.
