Cornella Real Ale

Come visit us at The Shiraz Republic, Heathcote


Located 25 minutes north of Heathcote, The Shiraz Republic is a genuine small family vineyard, winery and home to Cornella Real.

Cornella Real is an idea which came to producers, Spencer and Matt, in 2014 over a pint in Manchester. The pair wanted to be able to drink a real ale back in Australia, so in 2015 they set about trying to realise their idea. Fact finding and research was conducted with visits and courses at breweries across the UK and Belgium, before they started brewing in 2015.

 In 80 litre batches, our ales are brewed at The Shiraz Republic winery & vineyard in Heathcote. Each ale is twice fermented and then put to condition in the bottle. Nothing but malt, hops, water and yeast go into the beer with no artificial flavours, preservatives or fining chemicals used. Each ale is unfiltered to allow maximum flavour and fullness of body – our beer certainly ain’t no low-carb larger.
2016 is an exciting year for Cornella Real, with upgrades to equipment in the works and a soft launch of beers to happen over the Heathcote On-Show weekend on the 11th-13th of June. From there, Cornella Real is set to upsize and begin distribution regionally and throughout Australia. Please visit The Shiraz Republic for a taste from the 11th of June and keep an eye out for Cornella Real once we begin our full release.
