The Mary Valley Rattler has partnered with Gympie’s Latitude 26 brewery to supply a specially-branded Off the Rails Ale and Cider for its Rusty Rails Café.
Latitude 26 brewery is located opposite the Gympie Station, from where the ‘Rattler’ departs for their tourism services through the picturesque Mary Valley.
Graham Kidd, owner of Latitude 26, said that Off the Rails Ale is an easy drinking American Pale Ale is a refreshing drink that was ideal for pairing with dishes from the Rattler’s café.
“The brew is made with Mosaic and SAAZ hops and has a complex but restrained malt profile achieved by using a combination of Pils and Pale Ale malts,” said Kidd.
“We then added a portion of wheat to give it a nice creamy texture and a great head, which is sometimes lacking in lighter beers. Finally we blended in a dollop of honey malt, which gives this beer its shimmery amber colour and inviting depth. We used a US-04 yeast to give a nice clean finish to the beer.”
