Grapefruit, zest, subtle hops. WHAM! You’ve got yourself the XPA Splicer. Brewed using a blend of Vic Secret, Ella and dry hopped Centennial. Stockade Brewing couldn’t just settle for a straight up XPA, so they added grapefruit to the mix, creating a smashable thirst-quencher.
Stockade started their brewery in 2013 and called it Macarthur Grange Brewery, a word play on a great Australian pioneer and the physical location of their Brauhaus. They soon started to plot around a series of beers that are both modern and classic at the same time, combining traditional European styles with Australian ingredients and flavours. The “German” brother has left his mark all over the brewery and the beer, insisting on using only the highest quality ingredients, no sugars for high speed fermentation and no preservatives to destroy the “purity” of the beer.
DID YOU KNOW?
Stockade’s first creation was a fourteenth century Germany saison-style beer, brewed with 200 kilograms of peaches.
