For Your Daily Dose of Veg, Cucumber Kolsch is Here

craft_beer_melbourne

You’ve surely seen a fair few veggie-infused alcoholic drinks in your day (Bloody Marys, martinis, mojitos), but have you ever tried a veg-infused beer? If not, you’re in for a treat. It’s one of the tastiest ways to meet your daily dose of green stuff for the day, and it’s available at Burnley for a limited time!

Our cucumber kölsch is the first of several produce-focused beers we’ll be releasing over the weeks to come. It’s fresh, clean and soft on the palate. You will definitely smell the cucumber before you taste it; while the scent is strong, the taste is slightly fruitier than you may expect. If you’ve had cucumber-infused water like the stuff offered at spas, you’ll have an idea of what’s to come. But unlike the water, this brew has added depth (and alcohol content) thanks to Spalter Select and Hallertauer Tradition hops paired with Pilsner malts to balance their bitterness. 

This ale is a refreshing bevvy for a hot day, and pairs incredibly well with sweet and spicy dishes like our sticky lamb ribs or hot wings. It’s also a perfect match for our chopped salads or anything else with cucumber. This week is gonna be a hot one, so if you find yourself parched, come by the pub – this juicy kölsch is sure to quench your thirst. Cheers!

Malts: Pilsner | Hops: Spalter Select, Hallertauer Tradition | Plato: 10.9 | ABV: 5.4% | IBU: 20 | EBC: 6 | Additives: Cucumber

Sincerely, Burnley
