Mountain Culture were fortunate enough to get a crop of Galaxy hops so fresh they were practically still photosynthesising so they combined them with a hint of passionfruit puree, and finished with their house yeast strain to create a sweet, creamy passionfruit bomb. And then DJ named the beer after a Dr Dre song that describes him feeling like he is travelling through the galaxy thanks to consuming illicit substances. They hope this beer takes you on a similar but more legal journey.
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.
