Sip, Savour, Salsa at Bridge Road Gathering After Dark
We’re so pumped to tell you all that Burnley Brewing will be participating in this years Bridge Road Gathering After Dark.
We’ll be teaming up with some of our neighbours for a night of beer drinking and culinary discovery. When the sun goes down over Bridge Road you’ll be introduced to our rich and diverse food and drink scene.
Obviously there are many different tours you can attend, but we do recommend the Sip, Savour, Salsa. Oh look, we just so happen to be the first stop on this journey, coincidence?
You’ll start at the river end of Bridge Road with us at Burnley Brewing and boy will be happy to see you. We’ll teach you a little about craft brewing and give you plenty of tasters of our craft beers to start your night off right before you got to see our friends at Amora Riverwalk Hotel, Bouzy Rouge and Niche on Bridge.
Taking place on Wednesday 2nd and Thursday 3rd May, 2018, there are two hosted tours each evening; one starting at 6.30pm the next at 7.30pm. If this sounds right up your street, tickets are on sale now at https://bridgeroadgathering.com.au/
So come check out the place we call home, explore the neighbourhood and we’ll see you after dark.
I trivia, therefore I beer

Harvest Pale released into the wild. It’s like brewing in the dark!
This coming Wednesday, 18th April, our very own Harvest Pale Ale will be released into the wild.
From 6pm onwards we’ll be doing a release special, pints at pot prices and a matched pork ribs food special, because we LOVE hoppy beers paired with rich, fatty foods. Who doesn’t?
The hops cut right through the richness and big hop aromas carry big, flavoursome food perfectly. There’s a party going on in your mouth and guess what? You’re invited! We’ve only got a few kegs of the Harvest Pale and a limited amount of pork ribs so make sure you get down to taste it!
What’s so special about Burnley’s Harvest Pale Ale we hear you ask? Well…Time for you to be a student at Burnley Brewing’s school of beer. It’s a bit like Hogwarts with hops.
Generally, brewers use dried hops when making beers. But when the hops are ready for picking once a year, brewers can use fresh hops, also known as wet or green hops. These fresh, beautiful hops are picked and used in a brew within 24 hours.
Our flagship pale ale uses both galaxy and cascade hops, but for this Harvest Pale Ale we’ve single hopped with galaxy only. It will be very cool to be able to taste these two beers side by side as the galaxy hop aromas and flavours will be very prominent.
As wet hops haven’t been dried like regular hops, something rather interesting is going to happen. Head brewer Michael can’t be exactly sure on the alpha acid or oil content and cannot accurately predict the outcome. It’s like brewing in the dark!
