Hunter Electorate: IronBark Hill Brewing Co
I rise to recognise the remarkable achievements of IronBark Hill Brewing Co at the recent Independent Brewers Association's Indies awards. These awards honour excellence in the brewing industry and recognise the innovative and creative spirits that drive the independent brewing community. Once again, the Hunter has risen above the pack, with our very own IronBark Hill Brewing Co taking home 13 medals at the awards.
In the packaged and draft beer categories, IronBark Hill won gold and silver medals for their Black Forest stout, a delicious drop brewed with English hops, Australian ale malt, chocolate malt, roasted barley, fresh pureed cherries and real dark chocolate that was added late into the fermentation to create an indulgent chocolate treat that reminds you of a Black Forest cake. They picked up silver medals for their Old Nessie, an 8.2 per cent Scottish strong ale, their summer ale and their Night Sky dark lager. They also picked up bronze medals for their Tickled Pink XPA, their American pale ale, their Far Canal lager and their Level Up India pale lager.
Congratulations to Andrew, Hayley and the team at IronBark Hill Brewing Co for these awards. These awards are recognition of your passion for, dedication to and skills in your craft. I look forward to bending the elbow and sharing a couple of frothies with you soon to celebrate your success.
