Beer and Cider

Beer

The MOST consumed alcoholic beverage in the world is Beer. Made from malted cereal grains, malted barley and malted wheat, it is sometimes flavoured with hops, which add bitterness and act as a natural preservative, though other flavourings such as herbs or fruit may occasionally are available. Beer is thought by some to be the oldest fermented beverage.

The strength of beer varies, depending on the brewer, and the taste of the guest who is consuming it, but it is usually around 4% to 6% alcohol by volume (ABV) although it may vary between 0.5% (de-alcoholised) and 20%, with some breweries creating examples of 40% abv and above in recent years.

Beer forms part of the culture of beer-drinking nations and is associated with social traditions such as beer festivals, sports events, BBQs parties, as well as a rich pub culture involving activities like pub crawling and pub games such as bar billiards.





Cider

Made from unfiltered juice of apples, Ciders are a drink that the English enjoy. Particularly from South West England. Ciders are getting soo popular in Australia that they recorded the largest percentage growth in sales of alcohol products in 2009 & 2010.

Cider alcohol content varies from 1.2% ABV(Alcohol By Volume) to 8.5% or more in traditional English ciders, and 3.5% to 12% in continental ciders. In Australia, Ciders were primarily produced for limited local usage, with national commercial distribution and sales dominated by two brands: Mercury Cider and Strongbow. Since early 2005 they been joined in the market by numerous new producers including Three Oaks Cider, Pipsqueak and Tooheys 5 Seeds Cider as well as imported brands like Magners, Weston's, Monteith's, Kopparberg, Rekorderlig and Somersby.

We believe Ciders are here to stay and will be enjoyed by all generations to come.
