About The Beer

Country: Australia

Brewery: Two Metre Tall Brewing Company

Style: Farmhouse Ale

Format: 750ml Bottle

ABV: 5.1%

A wild fermented ale of malted grains and Derwent Valley grown pumpkins. This ale is a blend of three different seasons, aged individually in oak barrels in our farmhouse brewery prior to blending in March 2023.

This, our second release from the project, blends 2016 (the 1st batch), 2017 (the weird child) and 2021 batches together. 2016 had tannin and sharpness from the skin in abundance. Time has mellowed these excesses. 2017 differed from the pioneering 2016 brew so much I was confused for many years about how this project could come together.

But persistence is everything when forging into the unknown and by 2021 I had a method, a fermentation process and an outcome produced a fabulous ‘base ale’ and, with the passage of years, the initial ‘oddities’ of both 2016 & 2017 brews had matured into incredibly textured flavour components to layer over this foundation. Blended in March 2023 and not bottled until September was the final touch to complete this intriguing puzzle. As a beverage, this will open your eyes!


Cracking Tip: 

Ashley Huntington has been a pioneer in the Australian brewing industry since converting a shearing shed in the picturesque Derwent valley into a brewhouse in 2009.

So few breweries can boast such wild, exciting, nuanced and utterly delicious brews as Two Metre Tall, with most of the hops and fruit used in their releases actually grown on their estate.

Sour Pumpkin Ale is a release years in the making. A symphonic blend of batches brewed in 2016, 2017 and 2021, this is a real treat for the senses.
