Brewer and train enthusiasts head in refreshing direction

One of Queensland Sunshine Coast’s most popular attractions, the heritage Mary Valley Rattler, has partnered with Gympie’s Latitude 26 brewery to supply a specially-branded Off the Rails Ale and Cider for their Rusty Rails Café.

Latitude 26 brewery is located opposite the historic Gympie Station, from where the ‘Rattler’ departs for tourism rides through the picturesque Mary Valley.

Graham Kidd, owner of Latitude 26 (above), said that Off the Rails Ale is an easy drinking American Pale Ale is a refreshing drink that was ideal for pairing with dishes from the Rattler’s café.

For the launch, local chef and supporter of Mary Valley produce Matt Golinski produced dishes to complement the beer, while some of the region’s best-known food producers provided guests with a taste of the Gympie region’s legendary fresh produce.

Micheal Green,  general manager of the Mary Valley Rattler, said that as neighbours it was a great opportunity to partner with Latitude 26 to add some ‘liquid gold’ to the region’s rich gold-prospecting heritage.

“The region’s European settlement and the construction of the railway were a result of the Gympie gold-rush in the mid-1800s, so to have local Gympie ‘gold’ flowing again through the taps at our café really adds to the visitor experience,” he said.
