New Beers Wrap
Two Birds Brewing Galaxy Hop Harvest
For Hop Harvest 2019, Two Birds Brewing has brewed a “straight-forward” pale ale to show off the Galaxy hop in all its glory. The Spotswood brewery has described this release as a beer with confident bitterness, balanced with a healthy hit of citrus and passionfruit.
Hop Harvest 2019 is now available in keg-only and comes in at 5.3% ABV.
Felons Brewing Co Natural Ale
Brisbane’s Felons Brewing Co has released a new core-range beer called Natural Ale. Available on tap and in cans from today, Natural Ale is an “easy, breezy summer-of-Brisbane-in-a-can type beer” with passionfruit and mango characters.
Natural Ale is brewed with malt and wheat, it’s unfiltered, unpasteurised and has no added preservatives. Natural Ale comes in at 4.4% ABV, 16 IBU and 5 EBC with a slight haze.
Bright Brewery Hop Harvest Ale
Bright Brewery‘s Hop Harvest Ale is brewed with freshly-picked experimental hop 016. At 6.3% ABV, Hop Harvest Ale 2019 “packs a whole lotta punch” with citrus and tropical fruit notes and a malty backbone.
Hop Harvest Ale 2019 is now available on tap and at selected retailers with bottles to come shortly.
Bright Brewery Barleywine
Appropriately released in time for Easter this weekend, Bright Brewery has ducked down into its cellar to retrieve its 2018 English Barleywine, which has been ageing for the past 12 months.
With an ABV of 14.4%, Barleywine has been aged to allow for those rich, malty flavours to mellow into a sweet, warming brew with flavours of dried fruit and toffee.
Barleywine is only available on tap and at select retailers.
