More beer, more fun. In-house brewery nearing completion

It’s finally here! The in-house brewery at Burnley is being hooked up as we speak. They’re big, shiny and brew-tiful. Say g’day to our 5-hectolitre brewery system, including 8 brite tanks and 4 fermenters.

The installation of our brite tanks means we’re able to pour even more beers across our taps and gives you guys the chance to interact with our brewers whilst in action. Oh, you can also drink fresh from the tanks, pretty cool huh.

When our in-house system is fully up and running we’ll be able to release new beers more often, starting with our American Indian Amber Ale ‘The Malternative Hoption’. This creation is the love child of our awesome guests at the Melbourne Food and Wine Fest event ‘Burnley Brewing Beerocracy’.

We’re not even sure if an American Indian Amber Ale is a thing, but we do know it’s about to become one. We’ll be using caramel malts to bring out those toasty flavours and as for the hops; have you ever wanted to drag your tongue across a forest floor covered in pine needles? This beer will be your friend.

Join us on the pursuit of hoppinesss and keep an eye out for our first brew day, it’s right around the corner.


Sincerely, Burnley
