We are a long way from the streets of London where roasted chestnuts rule yule, so we have laboured to bring these to you, our growing throng of aficionados.
So far we have travelled through Fremantle (WA), Adelaide (SA) and onto Camperdown (NSW) in recent months and this iteration draws us south.
Hand crafted in Beechworth, we head to the craft brewing heartland of Victoria. That statement is of course subjective and may just be because there are more hipsters in the south of our great nation. (#FactCheck).
Nonetheless, we bring you a unique Australian Pilsner, brewed in Beechworth from chestnuts grown locally in the Beechworth and Stanley hills. The Chestnut Pilsner also uses Galaxy hops from the Rostrevor Hop Garden in the nearby Ovens Valley. As with any of the world’s best pilsner's the most important ingredient is time, and they have allowed this beer plenty of it, with each batch aged for around 3 months before release. Bridge Road Brewers have created a gem of a beer through experimenting with local produce, a truly local brew!
This unique lager is very pale and presents a crisp ‘pilsner’ like profile combined with a distinct nutty character owing to the use of chestnuts in the mash. The crisp clean profile of this beer lends itself to the summer months and can be paired with seafood or lighter dishes.
Yours now to enjoy at the bar with one of Chef Nathan's seafood specialities.
