Collaboration beers add a little spice to any brewing project with a fresh set of eyes and more directions for ideas to come from.
At the Australian Brewery we love to collaborate and 2017 saw a couple of favourites we produced with Bucket Boys Craft Beer “If you like Pina Colada” & “That’s how you Make Porridge.”
Our collaboration beer journey begun back in 2014 working alongside Feral Brewing to create the “Stormtrooper Imperial Pilsner.” This beer helped put us back on the map and at 8.1% helped bring the craft lager front and centre into the craft beer conversation.
Finally recovering after a summer spent sipping our New World Pilsner and patiently waiting for our new tanks and canning line to be hooked up. We are now ready to begin a series of planned collaborations for 2018. We have a few ideas in the pipeline with some of our old friends but we are also looking at new opportunities and concepts.
With a 2000 litre tank on the way, our ability to do smaller one-off brews will improve dramatically. Our brewing team are excited to test out new ideas and genre bending styles. We take a fully collaborative approach meaning that all options including the beer and design are on the table. Our single stipulation that we only package in cans!
