Every year Moortgat Brewery produce a limited edition beer that utilises three hops. Two hops stay the same each year, Styrian Goldings and Saaz and one is swapped out with a new exciting hop such as previous years stars Citra & Sorachi Ace.
This year the world wide launch was coincided with a SA launch at the Beerhouse. The new mystery hop was revealed as Mosiac from USA – a aroma hop variety developed from Simcoe and Nugget hops. You got to love hop names. It was developed in 2012 and offers a unique and complex blend of floral, tropical, fruity and earthy characteristics.
The beer itself is another winner from the famous Belgian Brewery. Taking note of the world trend of beerlovers desiring hoppier beers the brew masters have dry hopped this beer for an excellent aroma and effervescent mouth feel typical of Belgian ales and lovely tangerine citrus notes. Our chef paired the new beer with canapés such as smoked mackerel pate with gooseberry compote to complement the beers flavour profiles.
Come get your limited Edition Triple Hop while it last.
Stay Thirsty/ Stay Curious
On 27 February 2014, a group of residents, business owners and representatives from the City Council came together for the first of a series of workshops aiming to develop a community-led vision for Long Street. Indeed the street is changing and everyone seems to hold an opinion of how Long Street should change.
On that day, the room filled up quickly and the workshop got underway punctually at 17:30. It started with an ice-breaker in which everyone was asked to ‘leave their jacket outside’ and strive not to represent their business but rather engage as individuals contributing ideas to a greater good, a greater Long Street. Everyone went around the room introducing themselves by name but refraining from identifying with a particular ‘outfit’ so that participation would be framed by individual ideas rather than businesses with a particular agenda.
Facilitators from Real Life Concepts engaged the group in an exercise to identify a common Identity (what everyone thought Long Street stood for), Image (how people thought the street was perceived by others )and Vision (what the group would like to see Long Street becoming). Interestingly and contrary to what most expected, safety was only prioritised in terms of perception (image) but it was the element of “people” that stood out both in the discussion about identity and that of vision. In other words, the group largely agreed that any changes to the street should ensure the human element in terms of diversity was maintained while security and safety should be improved not through heavy policing but rather through mechanisms that invited more people to populate the street and thus create a feeling of safety.
The discussion was rich and Real Life Concepts is working to put together a report that outlines the main components of that discussion; in the meanwhile, it is worth nothing that ideas on concrete activations were put in place. They included training for security personnel; cleaning sessions with residents; temporary closure of the street, street lighting and Christmas lights, the integration of side streets; more landscaping, putting up flags to distinguish the street, and traffic calming measures amongst others.
We would like to thank the Southern Sun Cape Sun on Strand Street for providing us with meeting facilities for the workshop on the 27th February.
The second workshop will take place on Wednesday 5 March at 11:00 and a different group of stakeholders will undergo the same exercise, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org if you would like to take part.
Stay thirsty, stay curious!
Beerhouse on long and Devils Peak Brewing Company have teamed up to launch our monthly event “Meet The Brewers”.
We got a busy weekend ahead. Many craft beers to taste and many locations to visit for the first Beerhouse in Johannesburg. We need your help finding the right location and offer a bounty of all our #99bottles of beer for those that do.
We admit that it is very demanding being a part of the Beerhouse Team, one task we particularly dislike is travelling to beer festivals to sample different and interesting beers and to meet the skilled brewers that make them. But hey, someone’s got to do it!
Friday and Saturday (February 21st-22nd) our Head Dreamer Randolf and Beer Whisperer Murray will be making their way up to the Clarens Beer Festival to complete this arduous task, knowing that they are doing it for the greater good of beer… It seems that there will be up to 17 of the countries top micro-brewers on show and the boys intend to test each one a couple of times at least
I will be joining them on part of this epic journey up over the pretty mountains through to the Free State and eventually into Gauteng with the sole mission of finding a venue for our expansion into Johannesburg.
We ask that you, our dear Beer Lovers, help us to find the newest addition to the Beerhouse family!
We are eagerly waiting for your recommendations and particularly your introductions to friends or family who either work in hospitality or are property developers/landlords looking for the most awesome tenant or future employer.
Or if you have the perfect spot close to your work or even down the road from your house, then email us the details and/or a picture of the empty space with possible landlords details, if they are advertised somewhere
For the recommendation that gets us the deal we will be giving away a voucher good for all 99 bottles of beer we stock at each Beerhouse!
So please do get in touch, the team will be available for meetings all day the 24th and 25th February….
Stay thirsty, stay curious!
