The year 2012 was a notable one for space matters: Venus transited, NASA put a remote control car on Mars, there was the total eclipse, Neil Armstrong – the original moonwalker – departed for another world. But closer to home a different sort of space-themed program got underway. It wasn’t further news about the Space Beer or even BeerSpace, but rather one of the country’s newer brewing ventures. It goes by the name Dennis Beer Co and launched earlier this year with a beer called Rocket Science Galactic Ale.



Mike Archer, Dan Kemp and Steve Moore are the three men behind the brand; a slightly tongue-in-cheek name that builds loosely on the idea that drinking good beer needn’t be rocket science.


Since around August, keen observers may have spotted their tap badges at a smattering of pubs and bars across NSW. But a smattering is all you will find, with production being about as small and infrequent as you get in commercial terms.


The trio are split between Sydney and Newcastle and they don’t have their own brewery, which makes brewing a bit of a logistical challenge. But brew they do, developing the recipes together and travelling across the state for brew days. For them, that personal involvement is important – simply sending a request and ending up with beer wasn’t the way they wanted to go about building their brand. They want to be involved in helping nail down the processes and be there to make the all-important recipe tweaks. And there have been many of those already.


Case in point was the IBU (AKA International Bitterness Unit AKA how bitter a beer seems to the drinker) count of the Galactic Ale which Mike recalls “started off at something like 118.“ In other words: bloody high, with humans generally believed to be able to perceive bitterness to around 100 IBUs.


“We didn’t put that batch out anywhere except for a few bottles we put aside,” says Mike. “But the next batch was at about 58 IBU and it actually got received pretty well, but some people just found it too bitter. Version 3 was one we were happier with, about 43 IBU, and the latest version sits about the same. We still consider it to be on the high side for a Pale Ale but we don’t think we’ll go lower than that.
