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%
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!
Over in North America, the Super Bowl is a lazy Sunday activity. But here in Oz, it takes place on a Monday morning.
If you’re lucky enough to have the morn off and want to spend it watching the big game, there’s no better place to do it than at Burnley Brewing.
We’re gonna party just like the Americans do, with nachos and chicken wings, a live screening of the game across two tv’s, and plenty of beers to go round.
We’re even opening early for the event and offering a banging deal for anyone who joins us – $50 will get you unlimited nachos, wings and schooners of our signature pale ale from 9am til noon.
(Don’t worry vegetarians or vegans, we have options available for you as well as the gluten-free eaters amongst us.) Cheers!
