Over one year ago, dreams became reality for head brewers Alex Marschall and Jake Phoenix. With their heads in the cloud, daydreaming from desk jobs, Alex Marschall and Jake Phoenix decided to make the move, quitting their engineering jobs to start Bowden Brewing.
“Brewing was always our weekly escape, a creative outlet, a passionate hobby, and even a side-hustle as we tried to live two lives. But now we’re diving in head-first to make this more than a dream.” said Alex Marschall.
“The last 12 months have been a whirlwind. We started out with a dream to escape the daily grind and have been embraced by the Bowden Community! We’ve produced 85 unique beers with many more in the works.” says Jake Phoenix.
What better way to celebrate the last year of Bowden Brewing than with an extra big Birthday beer! The weather is cold and dark so they felt what was better than a thick syrupy imperial stout. To make it interesting they asked their staff to relive their past and suggest their favourite first birthday party food suggestions. And thus, the beer is a doozy.
It’s filled with mud cake, fairy bread, honey joys and ice cream cakes! Producing a beer layered with nostalgia, mud cakes, vanilla, coconut and lashings of everything which makes a first birthday great – They stuck coffee in it too.. Just because.
To top off the celebration the brewery will be putting on a party this Saturday the 9th of July. They have lined up some of their favourite Sunday Session live music guests to kick them off from 12pm, the MASA kitchen will be slinging taco specials all day long and they will be launching a few more beers to top the day off!
Dig out your brightest party shirt because the team at Bowden Brewing will be celebrating!
Come share the fruits of our labour and love, with a local or three, this Saturday July 9th from 12pm.
Bowden Brewing is located at Plant 3 Bowden, 6/14 Fourth Street, Bowden 5007.
