First brewed in 2013 to mark our 1000th brew, Millennium Falcon is made with pale malt and an interstellar hopping rate to produce an “Emperial” IPA that is simply out of this world. For this 2017 release, the hop bill has again been tweaked and features a star-studded cast of favourites both old and new. Get ready for a tropical hop hit from beyond the stars!

May the hops be with you!

Gate Series
Millennium Falcon Emperial IPA
ABV: 9.5%
IBU: 100+
EBC: 5

Gate Series is the name we give to our range of special single-batch brews. Released throughout the year, Gate Series beers are available nationally, in both keg and 500 mL bottles, but strictly limited, so grab them while you can!

Millenium-Bottle-x-6

Emperial IPA
Made with pale malts and lots of hops (Azacca, Citra, El Dorado & Mosaic)
OG: 19° Plato, IBU: 100, EBC: 5

Tasting notes
This year, the brewers decided to shave a little off the ABV to make this massive beer more drinkable, though they stopped short of calling it a session-able Imperial IPA! The aroma is chock-full of super-fruity US hop aroma – think juicy pineapple, tart citrus, stone fruit, boiled lollies and bubblegum. On the palate the fruity mélange is underpinned by a bold, evergreen hop bitterness. Mouthfeel is full and luxurious yet at the same time dangerously drinkable.

We're launching a beer that pays homage to the Holgate family and Paul's dad whose biking exploits of 1950's England and spirit of risk taking, live on in this Helles style house beer.

This awesome photo of Paul’s parents riding their Norton, taken in England 1952, has become the inspiration for a new beer: the Norton Lager. It’ll be an Australian dry-hopped Lager, brewed to be enjoyed by all, on tap from 4th September and ridin’ out in bottles soon after.

We will be re-releasing our beloved Millennium Falcon Emperial IPA, the beer that marked our 1000th brew milestone in 2013. Pubs across the country will be joining us in tapping this extremely limited brew on May the 4th in honour of its namesake. This year you will definitely feel the power of the (hop)force, with an interstellar hopping of Mosaic, El Dorado, Mandarina Bavaria, Citra, Galaxy, Millennium & Falconer’s Flight at 100+ IBU.

Millenium-Bottle-x-6
First brewed in 2013 to mark our 1000th brew, Millennium Falcon is made with pale malt and interstellar hopping rates to produce an “Emperial” IPA that is simply out of this world. Together with our traditional Millennium, Falconer’s Flight and Galaxy hops, the 2015 release is pushing the flavour experience into uncharted space with intergalactic levels of new, super-fruity hops that make this IPA a force to be reckoned with!

May the hops be with you!

Emperial IPA
Made with pale malts and lots of hops (Mosaic, El Dorado, Mandarina Bavaria, Citra, Galaxy, Millennium & Falconer’s Flight)
OG: 20° Plato, IBU: 100, EBC: 5

Tasting notes
Millennium Falcon pours a bright golden. The aroma is a blast – a super-fruity confectionary cocktail of juicy pineapple, tart citrus, stone fruit, boiled lollies and bubblegum. On the palate the fruity mélange is underpinned by a bold, evergreen hop bitterness. Mouthfeel is full and luxurious yet the finish is dangerously dry.

 

Come Celebrate With Us!
To celebrate this year's release of Millennium Falcon Emperial IPA, we are launching it in a Land Far... Far... Away (Woodend) at the Brewery from 5pm on May the 4th! Along with your pre-purchased ticket which entitles you to a discounted 6x500ml Pack of Millennium Falcon and a free pot at the launch, come dressed up as your favourite Star Wars character and not only will you receive an extra pot over the bar on the day, but you will also go in the draw to win a night for two at the Brewery (accommodation and breakfast included). So, all the more reason to practice your wookie howl and get your light saber out of retirement for this Galactic event.
