Clubhouse x Modus Operandi — Wed 16 Mar

March 16, 2016 @ 6:30 pm - 8:30 pm


This month, the Clubhouse welcomes the multi-award winning local brewery Modus Operandi


 Wed 16 Mar    6.30pm–8.30pm    Uncle Hops, The Bank Hotel, 324 King St, Newtown 2042
 $15pp exclusive to BLCo members

We’re opening up the Clubhouse at Uncle Hops to our seventh guest brewer. This month, the team from Modus Operandi will be flying in, all the way from the Northern Beaches.

Only three months after opening the brewery in July 2014, Modus Operandi won several trophies at the Craft Beer Industry Association Awards, including awards for Australia’s Best Amber/Dark Ale, and Best IPA. Since then, they have been recognised as the Best New Australian Brewery in 2015, and their Former Tenant Red IPA (see below) was placed no. 9 at the Hottest 100 Craft Beers in Australia.

On the night, the Modus team will showcase their beers, while Bottled Lightning Co’s beer guru Liam Pereira will lead a Q&A, before exploring the remainder of the MO range. Guests will receive a tasting paddle of MO beers to accompany the brewer presentation. Tasting notes will be provided, and the Clubhouse bar will be open following scheduled proceedings.

The Beers

Former Tenant Red IPA
7.8% ABV
Bursting with aromas of Passionfruit and Mango due to a heavy hand on the Mosaic and Galaxy dry hops, this Ruby Red IPA has a complex blend of citrusy hops and savory caramel malt flavor followed by a slightly sweet finish.

Sonic Prayer IPA
 6.0% ABV
Amongst the countless machinations of the India Pale Ale, Sonic Prayer is an enigma; an interstellar rendition of a timeless classic. Brewed as a tip-of-the-hat to our brewer’s favourite band, Earthless, Sonic Prayer is a psychedelic conglomeration of the holiest of ingredients.

Marching Powder Stout
This one’s still in the tanks – tasting notes available on the night. 

Drupey One Brown Ale
4.5% ABV
The Drupey One has been aged on toasted pecans, just in time for Autumn! Wondering about the name? Believe it or not, the pecan is not a nut, but a drupe. What’s a bloody drupe you ask? It’s a fruit with an outer fleshy part that surrounds a shell with a seed inside (think peach, cherrie etc). Fact.
