Barrow Boys Brewing Company

Barrow Boys

These days, if you want to catch drinkers’ eyes from the off, chances are you’ll plump for something overloaded with hops. High in alcohol, aged in a barrel or based on an obscure style. New Melbourne-based brewing company Barrow Boys decided to do things a little differently. However, they launched with a lager, that oft-dismissed-by-the-hardcore branch of the beer family.

That said, it’s not your common or garden pale lager. Sure, it’s not overloaded with hops, high in alcohol, aged in a barrel or based on an obscure style. Uniquely, it’s different enough to catch the drinker’s eye. Rusty amber in colour and awash with layers of toffee and biscuit malt flavours. It’s loosely based on the Vienna lager / Marzen style that is usually only rolled out by brewers as a one-off at Oktoberfest time. In fact, so rare are permanently available Vienna lagers in Australia. When we discovered recently that we could find no Sam Adams Boston Lager for a beer course we were running (that was due to start in an hour) with Miro Bellini from Good Beer Week there was a moment’s panic.


The Created Stormy Lager

Ash Hazell said people are brewing great, hoppy beers but he figured that the real hero of beer is malt. He love a good craft lager so when they started out doing trial brews and having a lot of conversations about beer, they wanted to do a lager or darker beer of some sort. They got some of his favourite dark lagers from around the world and then it was up to him to take their ideas and make them into a beer.

Thus it was that he created the Stormy Lager, featuring a range of specialty crystal malts, as Barrow Boys’ first release.

Justin Trail said you give it to a customer [expecting a pale lager] and they start looking at it sideways. They see it pour and it’s so dark but then there’s that comfort when they try it and it tastes light. It’s a bit of surprise.
