This beer was inspired by the aesthetics of David Bowie and the Mountain Culture team’s constant desire to wear Spandex. They have gone big on dry hop additions of Idaho-7 and Cryo Pop in this West Coast IPA to push the limit of tropical island fruits. The flavours of zesty tangerine and sweet citrus are balanced by the complex bitterness extracted from the whirlpool addition of Simcoe. Ladies and gentlemen, this is the Electric Dream Machine.
Built-in 1912 in the beautiful Blue Mountains town of Katoomba, Mountain Culture’s building housed ‘The Echo’, the local paper for many a year. Later it allegedly passed time as a “dancing saloon and home for lost or belated drunks”, until finally ending up as a Civic Video store. In 2017 DJ and Harriet McCready embarked on transforming the dilapidated building into the first brewpub in the Blue Mountains. After 18 long months of careful renovation, they opened the doors with the goal of welcoming people from near and far to come in and have a beer. But not just any beer. Rather, they hold themselves accountable to a standard that means constantly pushing the limit and pushing themselves to figure out how they can brew better beer, every batch. Because let’s face it, life is short. They have no time for beers that don’t blow their hair back, and nor should you.
