Furphy Ale ‘Share the Story’ Poster
$24.00 – $85.00
Little Creatures Brewing (owned by Lion Beer Spirits and Wine Australia) built their breweries in Fremantle and Geelong using stainless steel tanks and fermenters supplied by Furphy Engineering. When they completed the Geelong brewery they were keen to make a beer with a local connection to Victoria and approached Furphy Engineering about adding a new beer to their repertoire – “Furphy Refreshing Ale”.
After approaching Furphy Engineering with the idea they discussed the concept in detail with them and brought this beer to life and, in turn, bringing the story of Furphy to a wider audience.
The beer was launched in July 2014 at the Geelong brewery. Speaking at the event Furphy Head Brewer, Warren Pawsey said: “We are very proud of this new brew we have created at Little Creatures in Geelong, but we couldn’t have done it without the quality Victorian ingredients we had to work with.”
“Initial inspiration for Furphy Refreshing Ale started with an Old style German ale which is still brewed in Cologne and called Kölsch,” added Pawsey.
A furphy is Australian slang for an erroneous or improbable story that is claimed to be factual. Furphies are supposedly ‘heard’ from reputable sources, sometimes secondhand or thirdhand, and widely believed until discounted. The word is said to derive from water carts designed and made by a company established by John Furphy of J. Furphy & Sons of Shepparton, Victoria. The steel and cast iron tanks were first made in the 1880s and were used on farms and by stock agents. Many Furphy water carts were used to take water to Australian Army personnel during World War I in Australia, Europe and the Middle East.
