Young Henrys and Brix Distillers, Rumming with the Devil

Young Henrys Brewery has teamed up with Sydney rum bar and distillery Brix Distillers to create a rum and raisin brown ale, dubbed ‘Rumming with the Devil’.

The limited edition brew is the work of brewer Harrison Chant, and is part of Young Henrys Brewers B-Sides, where its brewers experiment with new or bizarre flavours.

Rumming with the Devil is available for a very limited time on tap at Brix Distillers Surry Hills, Young Henrys Newtown, and selected bars and pubs across the country from Thursday 11 July.

Blizzard Brewing, Alpenglow NEIPA

Victoria’s Blizzard Brewing is launching a double dry hopped 5% abv beer, Alpenglow NEIPA.

The New England IPA, made using US05 yeast, has been twice dry hopped with Calypso, Citra, Centennial and Falconers Flight.

Its name was inspired by alpenglow, a phenomenon where the setting sun creates a luminescent red light on the horizon of the mountain peaks.

Adding to the alpine link, it uses spring water fed by snowmelt and accumulating in High Country aquifers underneath its mountaintop brewery.

Currently in tanks, Alpenglow will be available next week in kegs and cans.

Three Sheets, Lord Nelson Brewery Hotel

Not actually a new brew, but some new packaging for an old favourite at The Lord Nelson Brewery Hotel, Sydney’s oldest hotel.

Reworking a classic, The Lord Nelson is getting its first ale, Three Sheets Australian Pale Ale, in cans. It was first brewed almost 35 years ago, and the beer is finally getting its own tin.

The 4.9% abv beer is called a ‘House Favourite’ and according to the brewpub, has citrus notes and a malty dry finish.

Ballistic Beer Co, Mandarin IPA

Brisbane’s Ballistic Beer Co has launched its latest India Pale Ale today, the Mandarin IPA in collaboration with Ontario’s Collective Arts Brewing.

The brewers at Ballistic used more than 200kg of mandarin puree for this Canadian collaboration beer. It’s being launched at the SA Beer Festival this weekend, and is available at Ballistic’s brewpubs.
