They have teamed up with their world-renowned mates To Øl from Denmark to recreate a favourite Danish dessert in beer form. Drømmekage (Dream Cake) is a sponge cake with a thick yet soft caramel, vanilla and coconut topping. This Imperial Dark Ale is full of all those rich cake flavours with caramelized coconut and vanilla added to a rich malt bill of Pale malt, Melanoidin, Carafa 3, Caramel Aroma and Golden Naked Oats. They have given the Danish tradition of sharing a cake with a friend an Aussie twang by putting all of these delicious flavours into one convenient can!
Two violin-playing brothers and their marvellously monikered mate have set out to create beers that meld styles, use all manner of unusual ingredients and frequently get to see the inside of barrels before being unleashed. In keeping with their unique ethos, Josh and Jake Uljans and Karl van Buuren have also situated their microbrewery in a spot equidistant between Carlton United Breweries headquarters and the Duchess brothel. What’s more, they’ve put it together from parts that include those used for seaweed-based cosmetics and an open fermentation tank from the former Wagga Wagga brewery that hasn’t been operational in around 80 years.
