Special of the Week: One Chicken, Two Ways

Melbourne_dining

From now until mid-week next week (or until we run out), the Burnley Brewing kitchen will be offering two delectable chicken specials – One inspired by the Carribean and the other taking cues from Southern American cuisine. 

Number one (on the left) is a Jamaican jerk chicken served on a bed of coconut rice and topped with house-made pineapple salsa. This tropical meal plus a pint of Summer Ale are just what the weather calls for on days as hot as the ones we’ve been having. 

Our second special (on the right) revolves around fried chicken, dredged in Cajun spice and cooked until it develops a perfectly crispy outer coating. It’s served atop a slaw-like salad featuring lettuce and red pepper, as well as a cob of corn slathered in cream. With the Super Bowl coming up on February 4, this dish will help get you in the American spirit. 

We’re planning to offer both dishes until Wednesday. If you’d like to give them a try, be sure to book a table in the days to come. Cheers!

Sincerely, Burnley

Hottest 100 Party at the Pub

Burnley_beer_brewery

Dust off that old Hawaiin shirt you wore to a Uni party once because it’s about to come in handy once more. This Sunday the 27th, in honour of Triple J’s Hottest 100 countdown, we’ll be offering big beers at small beer prices for anyone who comes in donning a festive floral button-down. 

That means just $4 a pop for a glass of house-brewed Burnley beers or natural wine, all day long. And so that you don’t have to drink in silence, we’ll also be playing the top tracks of the last year from open til close.

It’s gonna be a hot one this Sunday, so to help you cool off, we’re supplying boozy slushies made from our sweet and tart Berliner Weisse as well as our house cider. We’re also launching a new menu of craft cocktails that we’re pretty proud of. We’re confident you’ll enjoy them too.

Of course, all food items will be available as usual to satiate any hunger pangs throughout the day. We can’t wait to see you there.

Sincerely, Burnley

A Lager and an Ale Walk into a Bar

amber_Ale_brew

What happens when you combine a crisp, clean German lager with a sweet, malty Amber Ale? A Steam Beer is born.

This style of beer, often referred to as a “California Common” is a US-style hybrid brew dating all the way back to the 1800s. It’s the newest addition to the Burnley tap list, showcasing a subtle fruity flavour alongside herbal, hoppy notes and a pop of caramel malts. 

Steam beers are traditionally creating by using lager yeasts at (warmer) temperatures normally reserved for making ales. The result is a very effervescent brew with a complex flavour profile. If you can’t decide whether you prefer an ale or a lager, this amber-coloured brew offers the best of both worlds. It’s been a hit since we released it a few days ago and won’t be around long. 

Be sure to pay us a visit over the next few days to give it a taste. And if you’re interested in trying other new releases before they hit the taps, pop by on a Monday for our free brewery tours and tasting sessions. Not only will we offer small tastes off the tank, but also larger tasters of our “in-progress” beers as part of our Monday tasting paddles. More info to come, so watch this space.

Malts: Ale, Vienna, Munich Light, Crystal Light, Crystal Medium, Victory | Hops: Northern Brewer, Cascade | Plato: 11.5ᵒP | Colour: 24 EBC | Bitterness: 39 IBU | ABV: 4.8%
