The Australian Brewery in Rouse Hill recently commemorated the ANZACs with a dedicated Trans-Tasman XPA beer across selected Redcape venues.
Made available to customers across a selection of NSW Redcape Hotel Group venues on Thursday 25th April, the Trans-Tasman beer was brewed specifically using all Australian and New Zealand malt and hops. Brewer James Howie and ex Rifleman at 5RAR used Australian Galaxy and Vic Secret hops, famous for tropical fruit and mild resin characters, along with New Zealand Wakatu and Taiheke hops, known for big lime and citrus flavours.
James Howie states “It is a real honour to be given the opportunity to brew a beer for a day so close to home. It is fantastic to be able to give punters a beer to enjoy, whilst giving them that opportunity to give back to a great cause. Supporting so many ex-servicemen and women.”
This was the first XPA that Australian Brewery has brewed, recognised as a style notorious for having the big hop profile of an IPA, but the leaner malt bill of a Pacific style pale ale. With a commitment to donate $25 from every keg sold to the ANZAC Legacy, The Australian Brewery are proud to be contributing $1,150 towards the ANZAC Legacy in 2019.
