Watsacowie brewery

I was delighted to be asked to join a beer tasting panel on a trip to the Yorke Peninsula.
Our destination was the Watsacowie brewery in Minlaton.
It's a relatively new brewery and the beers had to be tasted and rated.

Our host was brewer Andrew Coleman.
A huge range, from light coloured to dark; and some interesting experimental brews.
We put them all on the tasting bench and went at them.
A superb range.
One was infused with ginger. Absolutely wonderful (if you imagined it wasn't a beer).

By the end of the session we were all frothing at the mouth.

The big test was what to select to take home.
That's the best test to apply.
I chose 2 beers:
Watsacowie S.Y.P. Ale, Pale Ale, 5% alcohol
Watsacowie Jazzy Red Ale, Indian Red Ale, 6% alcohol
Both are drinking well at home; at the end of the day.

But what surprised me was their apple cider called 'Beached Apple Cider'.
I don't normally enjoy cider, but this was superb; the best ever.
It tasted like fresh apple juice without being overly sweet.
It is not made at Watsacowie. It's made by Paracombe for the brewery.
It has the cutest label (see photo).
This label and most of the #Watsacowie labels were designed by Andrew Coleman who started life as an artist in Adelaide.

It's worth the trip to Minlaton.
The beers are superb.
