Here at Malthouse, we have a longstanding friendship with Hallertau Brewery in Riverhead – and the man behind it all, Steve (Natureboy) Plowman. The reason for his nickname is lost in the mists of time, but some believe it is in relation to his predilection for brewing “nu tout nu”. [1]

Regardless of the truth in the matter, we reckon that he’s a pretty nice fellow. [2]

So, to celebrate the 6th instalment of Project Silver, we have a banging lineup of 10 Hallertau beers pouring on Saturday – the perfect combo along with the Rugby.

The lineup is as follows:

Hallertau #6 Session IPA 3.80%

Hallertau Barrel Aged Peach Gose 5.30%

Hallertau Foraged Feijoa Nitro Sour 6%

Hallertau Funkonnay Keg 2016 6.50%

Hallertau I Like Your Speakers 7.40%

Hallertau Maximus 5.80%

Hallertau Nitro Porter (unaged porter noir) 6.60%

Hallertau Nocturne Double Stout Barrel Aged 10%

Hallertau Ordained Red IPA 6.50%

Hallertau Stuntman IIPA 8.50%

A couple of these beers have never been available outside the hallowed grounds of Hallertau Brewery & Biergarten, so it is the perfect opportunity to give them a go and have a yarn to Steve at the same time.

On a darker note, things are shaping up nicely for the 2018 instalment of Darkest Days next Friday, 22nd June where we will have our biggest lineup yet of Stouts, Porters, Barley Wines and other such wintery treats. Save the date.
