All Hands Brewing House wins 2 major categories and medals at the Independent Beer Awards 2019!

In Victoria earlier this month at the culmination of the BrewCon and Trade Expo, the Indies (Independent Beer Awards) saw All Hands Brewing House take the medal home for Champion Australian Independendent Brewery in the major ‘Brewpub’ category and NSW State Champion title!  They also won a further 7 Gold, Silver and Bronze medals for their 6 brews in the two day competition gaining favor with judges over the hundreds of beers entered across a range of styles!

The Boiler Room Dinner was an opportunity to celebrate the super duo and men of the hour – Head Brewer, Sam Clayman (who has a PhD in biology and Diploma in Brewing Science) and Assistant Brewer, Tim Radjenovic.  

A sensory experience in pairing food with their brew:

The sensory extension to the signature brews and whiskies is executed in a way that challenges the diner.   Venue Manager, Craig Morgan described the collaboration in menu design and  rationale behind the pairings with Executive Chef, Michael Acevedo.  “Both of us decided duck would work really well with with the IPA which cuts through the greasiness, Chef came up with the braised pork rib, which is describe on the menu with pineapple and we’ve put it into the braise.   The pear tart and combination of blue cheese whether you like it or don’t like it – it confuses the palette”

Handing over the reigns to Benriach Distillery, hosts for the evening, the food, wine and beer pairing are a new concept for All Hands as it’s always been about the beer.    It was a great opportunity for the lads to let their hair down and bask in the glory of their wins.  An event like this opens the discovery of their Darling Harbour brew to new audiences in a destination dining hotspot for locals and visitors.
