GABS Brewer 2016: Ron Trigg from mike’s Organic Beers in Taranaki, New Zealand
What beer are you making for GABS?
Peated Scotch Ale
What’s it called?
Loch ‘n Lode
Where did the inspiration come from?
Dylan, the third generation Trigg at mike’s is a huge peaty whisky nut, and not a big fan of really bitter beers, so when we heard of the newly available New Zealand peat smoked malt it was a no-brainer to try and create a big Scotch Ale that would compliment a Peaty Islay Single Malt.
Tell us why you have chosen to brew a Festival Beer for GABS
We’ve been involved every year, love the challenge and would be stoked to be voted as the peoples’ choice beer.
Finish this sentence, ‘‘one thing I would like to change about craft beer is…’’
to make distribution a whole lot easier for smaller brewers.
The Great Australasian Beer Spectapular is on May 20-22 at the Royal Exhibition Building in Carlton, Victoria, May 27-28 at the Australian Technology Park in Eveleigh, NSW and June 18 at ASB Showgrounds, Greenlane, Auckland.
