IT'S HERE! "In August 2022, a precise volume was taken from each of the now 17-barrique strong solera and blended into a tank containing hop flowers grown in the Derwent River Valley - Galaxy of course! In February 2023, a very small amount of honey from the bees resident on our farm was added to this magical aromatic elixir before it was bottled. The result is basically the magic that beer has represented to humanity across the milennia; ingredients in their natural state, harvested as locally as possible, water from the river surrounding our farm, transformed by fermentation without one single addition over a four year period, sweetened once more using nectar from our own bees before once more spontaneously fermenting into the celebratory & sparkling beverage you have just poured into your glass..." - Ashley
Originally a winemaker in southern France, Ashley Huntington and his family moved to a 580 hectare farm in the Derwent Valley in 2004. Originally looking to plant vines to make wine, they fell in love with Tasmania's rich hop growing history and established Two Metre Tall instead. A true farmhouse brewery, using estate-grown & local ingredients and exclusively wild and mixed culture ferments with indigenous yeasts and local microflora. Ashley is a pioneer of sour and natural fermentation and one of the most important figures in farmhouse brewing.
