Brewmanity’s ‘Guten Tart’ at Hophaus
Former Melbourne Football Club Captain, David Neitz, has traded his footy uniform for his Lederhosen and taken over official duties as Mayor of this year’s Oktoberfest held at Hophaus in Melbourne from September 16 to 22 October.
With his German heritage proudly on show, Neitz, now founder of Brewmanity beer company, welcomed guests to the official launch with the introduction of his new German style beer named the ‘Guten Tart’.
“The name is an obvious play on the German phrase for hello – Guten Tag – and it also refers to the tart nature of the Berliner Weisse beer style. Along with that, the idea of people saying ‘hello’ over a few beers is a pretty nice sentiment” Neitz Said
And what of the beer? “The Guten Tart is a traditional German style of beer, with a slight Aussie twist of Australian finger lime, that we think will be the perfect way to compliment the German beers on offer.”
Part of the sale of each Brewmanity beer supports the Fight MND foundation, with Brewmanity raising over $150,000 for the cause so far. To keep the Fight going, Brewmanity and Hophaus will also hosted a Beer Vs Beast Dinner to raise funds for MND on Wednesday October 18.
