This Ginger Turtle is built over an IPA style base that’s big on oats with the addition of chit malt to give the beer a big full mouthfeel and a nice creamy head. The hops have been left to the whirlpool and dry hopping additions which adds further complexity to the spicy fire breathing kick you get from the addition of ginger root and lemon myrtle.
The Grassy Knoll was founded by Chris, owner of a live music venue in Bondi and with a background in creative events, and Jeff with a colourful history of music and backyard brewing. The Grassy Knoll actually started in the backyard with a ‘membership’ scheme that covered the costs of brewing. However, the demand soon started to grow beyond what could be brewed on a small homebrew setup and it became clear that Chris, an avid member of ‘the club’, had to change his tactics. He joined forces with Jeff and they decided to start Bondi’s first brewing company.
