Mountain Culture ‘Be Kind Rewind’ NEIPA


“Our brewery is housed in what was one of the last Civic Video stores left in the country before it shut its doors in 2017. Its message was always Be Kind Rewind and never has that simple ode been more relevant than now. As for the beer, we brewed this to be big and juicy in the hope that it will take you on a tropical excursion without you having to leave your home.”

Glassware: IPA

Appearance: Turbid mustard yellow with a thumb of tightly packed foam perched on top. Good retention and healthy lace down the glass.

Aroma: We think Aussie breweries are finally starting to grasp the concept of NEIPAs. This aroma is almost perfect…tonnes of stonefruit and creamy orange citrus, frosty fruits, substantial amount of white bready dryness, tropical fruits, mild grapefruit/rind, herbal spice and white pepper. There’s gotta be rolled oats in the grain bill coz the overall smoothness and porridge-like notes coming through are strong. Excellent.

Flavour: This is where it’s at! Kind of musty apricot and peach, frosty fruits, brekky juice concentrate, grapefruit, orange peel, herbal spice oats, white bread crust and a hint of tropical fruit i.e unripened pineapple and mango. It’s pretty much this smooth carriage of flavour through to the well balanced finish. Pretty good legs as well.

Mouthfeel: Creamy and smooth AF! Some chalkiness to it but we like that in NEIPAs. Medium body, finely carbonated. 7.3% ABV is incredibly well hidden.

Overall: MC have been killing it lately (well they’ve been killing it ever since they opened really). This is the feather in the hat though… absolutely superb interpretation. We’re catching up to the Yanks quick smart!
