Here’s cheers to Fleurieu beers

Battle of Bosworth, Willunga

Organic grapegrower, winemaker and wannabe fisherman, Joch Bosworth had a vacant piece of land after he grubbed out a vineyard. He decided to grow certified organic barley, with the intent of making some whiskey and beer from his crop. While this may sound like a simple plan, most barley is currently malted in bulk. After finding a small batch malter in Geelong, Joch became the proud owner of what he describes as ‘Australia’s most expensive malt!’ Working with Simon and Kate at Smiling Samoyed Brewery in Myponga, Joch developed super clean malt-driven pale ale, with only a small amount of hops. This extremely limited single-paddock regional beer is available from the Battle of Bosworth cellar door.

Forktree Brewing, Carrickalinga

If you’re looking for a brewery with a breathtaking view, then do yourself a favour and visit Forktree Brewing in Carrickalinga when they open to the public in the near future. Sitting on top of a hill at the backthe creative process that comes with beer production, focussing on crafting quality beers. Realising the family farm was only one hour south of Adelaide – but feels like the middle of nowhere – he decided to start the building phase for his brewery door. ‘I absolutely love the area,’ Ben muses. ‘It is a true natural paradise.’
