We welcome a new hazy addition to our taps with the release of Burnley’s New England IPA (NEIPA).
One of the more recent beer styles, the hazy and murky variant of the IPA has been making waves since 2017; that year’s GABS Hottest 100 Aussie Craft Beers countdown had seven NEIPAS featured. Only last year, the NEIPA had its own subclass added to the Australian International Beer Awards (AIBA), showing that the style is here to stay in the Australian craft beer scene.
So, what makes a NEIPA? From first look, these unfiltered brews are a different looking IPA, much hazier and with a very creamy head. These unique IPAs bring all the hoppy notes one would expect from a standard IPA, but they are much fruitier and juicier than their brethren. While still containing some fantastic hops (our NEIPA showcases the Chinook, Galaxy, Mosaic and Cascade hops), the bitterness takes a backseat to the juice flavours, sitting at a low 28 IBU.
With a beautiful tropical aroma and a bursting taste of mango, our NEIPA is a hoppy, juicy and tropical flavour-bomb of a brew. Certain to be a new favourite on our taps, come down to Burnley to sample our venture into the haze craze.
Malts: Ale, Rolled Oats, Wheat | Hops: Chinook, Galaxy, Mosaic, Cascade | Plato: 14.3°P | Colour: 8 EBC | Bitterness: 28 IBU | ABV: 6.1%
When planning a wedding, everyone thinks that the Buck’s or Hen’s party and reception are the most important events. But at Burnley, we believe that the festivities shouldn’t stop there. It’s only once the vows have been said, rings have been exchanged and attendees have been greeted and thanked that brides and grooms are truly able to let their hair down and enjoy their special day.
Or the day after, in some cases.
If you’re not rushing off to a honeymoon the day after you say “I do”, why not spend that day recovering with some beers and brekkie at Burnley? Our brand-new post-wedding recovery brunches are perfect for exactly that. Whether you invite just your family and close friends or your entire wedding guest list, we can provide all the goods necessary to cure those post-wedding hangovers and prolong the celebration for a little bit longer.
We’re talking all the greasy goodness you need to soak up the booze, from egg and bacon rolls to brekkie calzones to platters of house-baked danishes and croissants. But not to worry, we also offer lighter fare including fresh fruit salads, juice and muesli if you so desire.
And let’s not forget the most important part – The hair of the dog. There’s plenty to fit this role, from all of our house-brewed beers to natural wine and spirits to mimosas or straight-up glasses of bubbles. And These Days coffee, but of course.
Is that enough to pique your interest? If you’re planning a wedding this year and like the sound of booking a post-party brunch with Burnley, we’ve got two things to say: 1. Congratulations and 2. give us a shout! We would be happy to host you and your crew.
We’ve teamed up with our very good friends and stockists over at The Hack in Port Melbourne to create a one-of-a-kind fruity brew inspired by the land. It features orchard-fresh peaches, wheat, and just a hint of salt to bring out the sweet notes of fruit and grain.
We launched this exciting brew over at the Hack last Sunday, where it’s now available on tap. If you can’t make it to Port Melbourne, you can also try our Salted Peach Witbier right here at Burnley while supplies last. But this one seems to be a hit, so maybe we’ll brew it again!
Like many of the beers we’ve been brewing for the summer months, this one’s a bit sour and very refreshing. It goes down nice and easy on a hot day and is relatively light at just under 5%. Go ahead, give this new collab brew a try. You know you want to. Cheers!
