Deeds Draught is simple, and to be honest quite lager-y. Deeds Draught has all the flavours you want; it is dry, nutty, and malty. It also has notes of honey and spice. With warmer days coming, the flavours, paired with the lower alcohol, make it a refreshing drink.

Deeds is a passionate team of beer lovers making beers they want to drink. A lot of beers! 2 – 4 new limited edition beers each month. Deeds offer you quality beers, innovated styles, made by award-winning brewers.
While they’re known for their endless list of Limited releases, the funny thing about that is that their core range is quite strong. Adding to this, they have a season range too. They are busy in this brewery, and the flavours they’ve crammed into a 440ml can are legendary. Legendary Deeds (TM The Wine Depository 2020)
Deeds Brewing started life as ‘Quiet Deeds’ in 2012. But as they moved into their own brewery in 2015 and took total control, they became Deeds Brewing.
The history of beer is long and complicated. It is a story worth hearing too. At its core, beer is the fermented product of grains, most of which is malted (toasted/cooked). The malting and extraction of the sugars are where most of the magic happens. But the use of hops and the choice of yeast can drastically change the aromas, flavour and palate of the beer. Add to this the unlimited ‘adjuncts’ AKA anything, not water, yeast, hops, or grains means that beer can be anything. Oh yeah, did I mention that altering the chemistry of the water can change the flavour and palate of the beer too?
The most important thing to remember is that there is a beer for everyone who enjoys imbibing alcohol. In Australia and around the world, there is a large amount of mediocre, bland, beers that are notionally easy to drink in large quantities. Most of these are Lagers or Pale Ales, but the variations of beer are endless, and when you start down the rabbit hole, you’ll never want to go back.
Comes from the German Lagern meaning “to store”. Lager is fermented with different yeasts to Ales and is kept quite cold during the whole process. Therefore giving a beer that is soft, light, subtle, pure. Cold storage also allows for extra clarification and the cold storage (previously in ice caves!) is what the name refers to. Making good Lager is quite challenging because any faults will be obvious. Great Lager is something to behold and unfortunately often overlooked in favour of the flavour bombs that IPA provide. A lot of Australia’s mainstream beers are bland Lager despite their names.
