How Thorny Devil Craft Beer has Been Nailing the Taste Factor

Thorny Devil wants you to live and learn all about craft beer: so we give you all the craft beer news = globally; hope the following article helps you understand more about craft beer:

 

Breweries in Mandurah especially Thorny Devil is in a constant state of moving forward but remembering its roots, striving to unite perceptive beer drinkers with handcrafted brews in irresistible flavours that carry a little bit of Mandurah in every sip.  What we think of as a modern Craft Beer can be traced back to the invention ale just prior to the 18th century. Typically malt was dried over wood or peat fire, but ale allowed maltsters to dry the malt at lower temperatures and without smoke. The resulting malts were light in colour and imparted less flavour. The first beers labelled as ‘Craft Beer’ started appearing soon after.

Craft Beer: Best Malt Is Still the Key

One of the biggest differences you’ll find across Craft Beers is their malt profile. While yeast and hop varieties allow for experimentation, brewers often use malt as a point of difference. Craft Beer has 15 per cent rye in its malt bill. The result is a counterbalancing spice to the citrus aromas and flavours. While at Thorny devil; making their Craft Beer darker and maltier than their other launch beers, a Session IPA and a Double IPA, was intentional.

“We wanted a pretty balanced Craft Beer with a lot of hop character. When we sat down we decided we wanted something a bit darker, a bit maltier and to use hops that support that,” Proudfoot says.

At the other end of the scale, Akasha has taken influence from the West Coast of the United States and built their Freshwater Craft Beer around a leaner malt profile. Padden chose this route to let the hops speak for themselves, rather than have them fight with the malt.

“In Australia, we tend to use a lot of crystal malts for some reason. So we backed the crystal right off –probably the same amount I would usually use in a Craft Beer but using a lighter grade. So you’re still getting the mouthfeel, still getting the head retention; just with none of that icky sweetness that you can get in Craft Beers that have a lot of crystal malt,” says Padden.

Breweries in Mandurah say Hops play a big role in modern Craft Beers

With the influence the US has had on Australian and global brewing over the last few decades; we are seeing more and more aroma hops being used. Customers increasingly expect strong hop aromas out of their Craft Beers. At Akasha, Padden uses a lot of hops during the whirlpool step of the brewing process, as well as a large dry hop addition.

“We wanted lots of those big piney, fruit-salady, typical Cascade flavours but we didn’t want too much bitterness,” says Padden.

However, as demand grows for hoppy beers, so does demand for hop varieties and many are proving harder to obtain. At Thorny devil, Proudfoot says he allows for one “headache” hop in each beer. In their Craft Beer it is Mosaic. A popular American grown hop, it is frequently mentioned as one that may be in limited supply in coming years.

Local hop varieties also offer unique flavours for brewers wanting to help their beers stand out. Craft Beer has evolved over the years but the brewing community still uses Australian grown Galaxy as the most prominent variety.
