Burnley’s First Beerthday Celebration

craft_beer_Can

It’s been 12 months since the first beers were poured at Burnley Brewing, with a whirlwind first year set to culminate in a massive birthday bash. To celebrate our first annum in operation, we’re showcasing a selection of our best original brews plus a few new ones we’re really keen on, along with a few tastes of delicious food from our Italian-inspired menu.

Expect tastes off the tank, some complimentary nibbles, live music and visual art to entertain you on the evening. We’ll also be serving two special pizzas (Garlic Prawn and our vegan alternative, Garlic Eggplant) made using spent grain leftover from our brewing process. It’s both healthy and environmentally-friendly! You can try these pies for $24 from November 29 while supplies last. 

We’ll also be pouring celebratory beerthday tasting paddles for $18 from the 30th onwards, which offer a taste of the best Burnley beers from past to present, including our Pale Ale, Vienna Lager, Dry Stout, Weizen, Cucumber Kolsch and Passionfruit Berliner Weisse. 

But that’s not the only thing to look forward to… In our first year, we brewed a whopping 32 brews, so it seems only fitting that our birthday celebration would coincide with the launch of our two new tinnies which will accompany our Pale Ale and Vienna Lager. If you’re wondering what the fresh additions will be, you’ll just have to join us for our birthday party, where we’ll be offering tastes of the new beers before they hit the shelves of your local, independent bottle shop. Otherwise, keep a very close eye on our social media accounts for updates.

As you can see, 2018 has been a great year for Burnley Brewing. We plan to set the bar even higher next year with a challenge to create 52 beers in 52 weeks! Will our head brewer Michael Stanzel be able to reach his goal? Only time will tell. 

But for now, let’s focus on the task at hand – Making sure that our first birthday is one to remember! Will you help us out? Tell your friends and RSVP here to confirm your attendance. We can’t wait to party with you.

Sincerely, Burnley

A Little Sweet, a Little Tart, and Berry Tasty

fruit_craft_beer

We know strawberries have gotten a bad rap over the past couple of months. When eating them comes with a risk of an unwanted tongue piercing, who wouldn’t be a bit turned off? But drinking strawberries, on the other hand, has never been safer (or tastier)! We’re not talking about that fake-pink Big M you secretly still enjoy on occasion, nor strawberry cordials or milkshakes or any other “fruit-flavoured” bevvies. 

We’re talking about a brand-new Burnley beer bursting with fresh, all-natural strawberries in all their glory. Our Tart Strawberry Pale Ale is just as bright in taste as it is in colour. It’s a non-traditional take on our signature Pale Ale, a bit of a flamboyant cousin, if you will. It’s far less hoppy than the pale but just as bold. It makes a great beer for people who like wine or cider or who simply appreciate a fruitier ale. And it’s available now for a limited time only.

If you would like to try this new, tangy brew, pop into the brewery any day from 12pm. We can’t wait to see you!

Malts: Munich Light, Wheat, Ale  | Hops: Mosiac, Cascade  | Plato: 13°P  | Colour: 0 EBC  Bitterness: 45 IBU  | ABV: 5.9%  | Additions: Strawberries

 

Sincerely, Burnley

Greet the Season with our Summer Ale

craft_beer_melbourne

The term “summer ale” gets thrown around quite a lot, but what’s it actually mean? Traditionally, these ales are made of both wheat and barley to create a seasonally-inspired mash that’s light yet crisp. This is exactly what you get from our brand-new summer brew. It’s similar to our recently-released session ale, but a bit stronger at 4.1%. That being said, this one’s still pretty smashable as well, and light enough to keep you going on those long summer days. 

We fancy it out front of the Burnley on our tall tables, basking in the sun. Even better if there’s a doggo or two around to entertain us as we sip. If not, a board game from our range or a new issue of Froth is sure to do the trick. Or maybe a crew of friends if you’re the social type! Considering our menu has many sharing-friendly options, it may not be a bad idea to recruit a group so you can sample the maximum amount of food possible. If you want to sample some additional brews as well, we do have six-beer tasting paddles available for $18 (plus one very special paddle on the way! Stay tuned).

But back to the ale at hand… This one is pretty neutral, meaning it pairs well most dishes, from grilled meats to pizzas to salads or perhaps some wings. It’s available now but going quick, so be sure to try it while you can. Cheers!

Malts: Ale, Carapils | Hops: Magnum, Simcoe, Amarillo, Mosiac, Citra | Plato: 10.9 | ABV: 4.1% | IBU: 12 | EBC: 6
