New in Southern Tasmania – Devils Brewery
With the continued growth of the craft brewing industry in Tasmania a new player has entered the market. Both locals and tourists are pushing for the craft product and tourists in particular just can’t get enough of locally made Tasmanian products.
‘Devils Brewery’ Head Brewer David Tottle said being inspired by a leading international craft brewing brand we decided to pursue a similar path, that of a ‘Gypsy Brewing company’. The term has found its way into the industry to describe brewers who utilise downtime on existing breweries to create their own beers.
All our recipes are our own and David is 100% hands on at brew day, from milling the grain to hop additions.
Working with local Tasmanian producers is a large part of our business ethos and allows us to create fresh and interesting beer styles. Our first beer , the ‘Cherry Popper’ a Chocolate & Sour Cherry Stout is now available on tap and is packed full of Tasmanian Cherries predominately from Richmond Cherries just outside of Hobart. Our next beer is using the skills of the local ‘Bruny Island Smokehouse’ is our ‘Smokey Moll’ a Molasses Porter, with grain smoked by BISH.
All of our beers are ‘Limited Release’ with only two kegs being available to each craft beer venue. David says “It’s the love of making beer… sharing it with others….. the unbridled creativity of it. I’m always on the lookout for interesting ingredients that could help create a wild, unusual and original beer”.
Devils ‘Cherry Popper’ is now available at these select venues and will probably run out before the end of the weekend!
