“Furphy is like people I’ve met in Geelong: welcoming and easy going. You can happily spend an afternoon with both”
Warren, Head Brewer
Furphy was born in Geelong at the Little Creatures Brewery there, and originally brewed exclusively for Geelong. Brewed in the style of a Kolsch Ale (think a lower IBU of 22, and a refreshing and crisp palate without overt hop bitterness), Furphy was named Furphy after the Furphy fermentation tanks built by the Furphy Family of Shepparton which have pride of place within our brewery in Geelong. (See how many times we can drop ‘Furphy’ into this very true furphy.) These days Furphy is distributed across the country, allowing its bright approachable style to be enjoyed by everyone. True furphy.
What’s it like?
Furphy Refreshing Ale is a clean and crisp, balanced beer with subtle fruit flavours and aromas. There’s a subtle maltiness throughout, which leads to a pleasantly refreshing, dry finish.
This is an approachable Ale, inspired by the German Kolsch style, but could be easily mistaken for a light lager.
It’s brewed with 100% Victorian Hops and Malt including Victoria’s Secret and Topaz hops as well as Vienna and Wheat malt.
