Proving to be very popular on the Sapphire Coast already, we have been asked for some more details about this new brew, so here goes.

HISTORY

This Lager originates from its’ namesake. Vienna is the capital city of Austria. Originally developed by Anton Dreher, the style is nearly extinct in its’ birthplace, but is now predominately being brewed in Mexico after being introduced by Austrian migrants in the 1800’s.

DETAILED DESCRIPTION

A more malt forward lager brewed through with Crystal Medium, Munich Light and of course Vienna and a light sprinkling of Pilsner malts make this 4.7% Vienna Lager comes to life with firm bread and biscuit notes finishing crisp thanks to the Weihenstephaner yeast strain.

Local Ryefield whole cone Saaz hops are used for a delicate, refreshing bitterness and Styrian Goldings used for a mildly earthy and peppery knockout.

WOODSTOCK 50TH ANNIVERSARY CONCERT
Its hard to believe that Woodstock has just celebrated its 50th Anniversary.  
From August 15-18, 1969, 32 musical acts performed on Max Yasgurs 600acre farm in Bethel, New York and history was made!  Nothing like this Festival had happened before, billed as “3 days of Peace and Music” Woodstock attracted an audience of close to half a million music lovers.
So many musical careers were shot to stardom as a result and became household names.  Joe Cocker, Santana, Crosby Stills Nash and Young and Janis Joplin among others became instant rock gods.

The music is still as vibrant today as it was 50 years ago, and although some of the original artists are no longer with us, many are still as popular as ever.

A huge celebration of “50 years of Woodstock” will be held at Oaklands on Saturday 5th October, featuring over 20 of the regions finest artists.  The artists represented include Richie Havens, (who opened Woodstock) and Jimi Hendrix (who was the final act) Joan Baez, Arlo Guthrie, Country Joe and the Fish, The Who, Ten Years After, Santana, Janis Joplin, Jefferson Airplane, Blood Sweat and Tears, Joe Cocker, Keef Hartley, The Band, Sly and the Family Stone, Crosby Stills Nash and Young and Canned Heat.  
Proudly presented by The Figmentz together with Longstocking Brewery and Oakland Events Centre, with a great concert sound and lighting in a beautiful out door setting this will be a very special event.


The latest craft brew will be on tap very soon, it will replace the very popular Cranberry Gose. The Gose was the first sour that we put out and will return in summer as a very refreshing Beer.

Thanks to all for your comments and requests. We will continue to produce the finest craft beers for our locals and visitors to the Sapphire Coast.
