Autumn is now well and truly upon us. Whilst it’s not exactly scarf and coat weather, we do have something a little bit special to warm you up over the next few months. We’re very excited about our Double IPA, on tap and ready to go. You might have had a chance to try it already.
As delicious as it is dangerous, our Double IPA sits at a pretty 9.5% ABV with a lovely dry finish and a bronzed orange tint. The first Double IPA was said to be brewed in 1994, so it is a relatively young beer style indeed.
We love a bit of citrus in an IPA and the Double IPA is no exception. However, what makes our brew so special is it’s extremely hoppy aroma with hints of grapefruit, apricot and peach. It’s up for debate, but we like to think this counts for at least 1 of your 5 serves of fruit a day.
“What makes it a double IPA and not just a regular IPA?” we hear you ask. Burnley Brewing to the rescue! It’s pretty simple, twice the amount of hops. The high hop bitterness in this beer is balanced by a sweet malt profile, resulting in a high alcohol beer with unexpectedly high drinkability. And delicious (if we do say so ourselves).
With its fruity flavour and high hop count, this beer will have you feeling merry quicker than you can say, “that was a hoppy slap in the face”. The warm “boozy” mouthfeel of the Double IPA sure is a wake up call for your palette. Whilst we aren’t suggesting it goes well with breakfast, we do think it’s a great pick-me-up drink for those lunchtime escapes from the office. Cheers!

In the lead up to this weekend’s Melbourne BeerFest, we were stoked to host Jack Heverin and the team from SEN 1116 for a beer or two earlier this week. Now, Jack reckons he knows his beer, so owner/brewer Neil challenged Jack to a blind taste test. See how it went down below….

If you think you’re up to the challenge, visit us this Saturday at Melbourne BeerFest and see how well you really know your Burnley Beer!
Why did the chicken cross the river? To get a Burnley Beer! We’ve sent a bunch of kegs of our finest Pale Ale across the beloved Yarra to some of our favourite southside bars, including Small Print Pizza Bar, The Orrong Hotel and The Alps. We’re stoked to have a tap at each of these venues, and even more stoked to have an excuse to drink a beer on the other side of the river.
The Orrong Hotel is our ultimate old-school fave; the kind of pub where everyone’s made to feel like a local. The historic 1875 building on High Street Armadale could come straight from a movie set, and they serve pub classics that’ll take you back to the good old days. Delicious. Happiness is sitting at this bar, watching the cricket and drinking a Burnley.
‘It’s the size of your print that counts’ is Small Print Pizza Bar’s motto. Referring to your eco footprint, this bright Windsor joint champions local, ethical and sustainable practices. The Burnley Pale Ale tap is in good company at Small Print, with the bar’s rotating list featuring great independent and craft brews from local breweries. If you head to Small Print, we advise you to arrive hungry. These pizzas are good! They even have a happy hour from 4pm to 6pm daily.
The Alps focuses on real wine, done well. With a selection of over 400 bottles, these guys know their grapes! When beer is not the starring show, it means even more to us to be selected to pour at The Alps. We must be doing something right. One of the sleekest venues in the South, The Alps also does artisanal spirits and light bites 7 days a week.
Now you’re feeling a Burnley outside of The Burnley, head south. The other thing can wait.
