Deeds Brewing Deeds XPA Brewers Notes
“This XPA is a laid-back easy-sipper! Made with 100% Australian pale malt and a juicy blend of hops. It’s a refreshing and tasty tinnie. Enjoy each sip with the balanced bitterness and a slightly dry finish. Get into it.”
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.
Extra Pale Ale. But I think rather than being Extra-Pale. It is a Pale Ale with a little Extra something. Generally, it is hoppier and slightly stronger than a standard Pale Ale. But to be honest, it is a category without real direction. A lot of the XPAs I have tasted are pretty ordinary, bland, thirst-quenching beer. And there is nothing wrong with that necessarily.
