Murray’s Craft Brewing Co, a craft brewer from the north coast of NSW, is releasing four seasonal bottled brews in 2008.

“The enthusiasm of our customers to have their beer palates challenged keep pushing us to try new things,” said Murray’s founder and proprietor, Murray Howe. “We’ve realised there’s a reason for the seasons — to provide a great excuse to brew even more of the beers we love to drink and introduce them through a seasonal release program.”

Murray’s Grand Cru has been chosen as the first autumn seasonal beer. Grand Cru is a hybrid of the Belgian Trippel and Golden Strong Ale styles made with Belgian yeast. Murray’s Grand Cru Autumn seasonal is available nationally through Dan Murphy’s, The Pub With No Beer, Port Stephens Winery and select independents.

“Our Grand Cru is a seriously big beer – with 8.8% alcohol by volume,” Murray said.  “And we’re only making 400 cases as an autumn seasonal. Once they’re sold that’s it for bottled Grand Cru this year. We need to free up the brewery to brew other styles.”

Murray’s pilsner beer will mark the brewer’s winter release. Details on the spring and summer releases are yet to be announced.
