First released for Oktoberfest 2017, Korff's Lager is back for 2019. This special release seasonal celebrates an unexpected visit to Brisbane Water in 1836 by shipbuilder John Korff. Korff’s visit to the Central Coast came about when the paddle steamer ‘Ceres’ he was a passenger on struck rocks and was wrecked near Norah Head on 29th August 1836. Having survived the trip to shore along with 58 lucky sheep (originally 60: one drowned, one was killed & roasted on the beach), Korff purchased and then salvaged the wreck using the hull to build ‘Rovers Bride’ - a cutter which he launched from Cabbage Tree Bay in April 1838. Like John, our new lager won’t be hanging around too long. With a blend of Munich and Vienna malts balanced by a generous dose of noble Hallertau hops, this beer pours a rich amber with a tight, brilliant white head presenting a delightful biscuit-malt aroma. With a malty sweet taste at the start and finish, Korff’s Lager is a true thirst quenching beer. Did you know? Coffs Harbour was named after John Korff after he'd taken refuge there in 1847. ‘Coffs’ was later chosen as the preferred spelling for the North Coast township.

Get in the spirit and pair with anything German like a Bavarian sausage or pork knuckle (Schweinshaxe). Failing that, roast lamb on the beach ‘Korff style’ doesn’t sound too bad either!
