Future Mountain x Whisky & Alement Boilermaker Session
- Duration: 90 Minutes (approx.)
- Location: Melbourne, VIC
- Product code: PFXHXD
Saturday May 21st at 2pm
Now in it's 9th year, Whisky & Alement's annual boilermaker event is the moment we go all out on the best whiskies and barrel aged beers we can pull together. On Saturday May 21 at 2pm we will be joined by one of the founders of Future Mountain Brewing and Blending, Shane Ferguson as we pair up 6 large format experimental Future Mountain releases, with 6 whiskies selected by Bar Owner, Julian White.
From oak smoked, wheat farmhouse ales to barrel aged, amber sours (with blackberries!), Future Mountain are making nothing less than exciting, experimental, delicious beers. Playing with house cultures and open fermenters means that these beers are unique to the brewery too, you won't get their particular breed of funk anywhere else.
Future Mountain Brewing and Blending is located in Reservoir, Melbourne and is a family run farmhouse brewery, formed with a dedication to fermentation. As mentioned above, the brewery boasts an open fermentor, a cellar filled with an array of barrels for blending, and a brewery floor with modern fermentation vessels. They do things a little differently at Future Mountain, and we are excited to find out more at our not-Good-Beer-Week event!
