The Vincast with Ashley Huntington from Two Metre Tall Beer & Cider

Ashley Huntington is a man on a mission, with great courage of conviction and incredible persistence. Though he has a background as a winemaker and spent many years working in the Languedoc region of France in that field, after purchasing a property in the Derwent Valley perfect for viticulture, he ended up brewing beer. The reason he was so interested in this alternative path was the discovery that the region grew in excess of 80% of the nation’s hops, which can only be used for beer production. In spite of this fact there were no local breweries, and thus he embarked on a mission to take the same approach to beer as he had to wine; using well-grown local raw materials, fermenting naturally and not filtering. It has taken many years but he is now held in high esteem as the craft beer market continues to grow in Australia.

Let’s Taste – Two Metre Tall Snakebite

When I finally visited Two Metre Tall Brewhouse in the Derwent Valley Tasmania, I was totally seduced. Not only by the scenery, nor the product. But by Ashley Huntington in particular. I couldn’t resist in bringing home a bottle of something home with me, and that something was the Snakebite. Here are my impressions of this unique product, let me know what you think in the comments!

Let’s Taste – Bress Harcourt Valley Cider 2015

For something a bit different I opened a bottle of the Bress Cider 2015 instead of a wine for this episode of Let’s Taste. What style of cider do you like? What do you think of Australian cider?
