The Two Metre Tall Company is a farm that not only makes beer but grows the ingredients that are used to make the beer. Ashley and Jane Huntington also have a bar which opens on a weekly basis from Spring to Autumn where you can sample the delightful beverages hand pumped right where they are made! (Check their web site www.2mt.com.au for details.)
You will need to look for the signs to their farm which is about 10 kilometres past New Norfolk in between Hayes and Rosegarland.
They have a number of beer and cider products including Forester Pale Ale, Huon Dark Ale, Derwent Clear Ale, Derwent Aromatic Spelt Ale, a barrel-fermented Sour Cherry Ale, Huon Farmhouse Dry Apple Cider, a perry known as Poire and Two Metre Tall Cleansing Ale all of which are delightful, interesting and well-crafted drinks.
We are particularly impressed with the fact that Ashley and Jane are now fermenting many of their beers naturally. We find that this process (which may take longer and may make unexpected turns and twists) ultimately produces beers that are far more interesting and which are far more complex than beers that have been forced through the process with commercial yeasts.
