GABS Brewer – 4 Pines

GABS Brewer 2014: Chris Willcock, head brewer from 4 Pines, Manly, NSW

What beer are you making for GABS?
A weird one. Beer brewed and spiced to mimic another alcoholic drink.4pines

Does it have a name yet?
“Gin and Juice” Snoop Dogg Tribute Ale

Where did the inspiration come from?
We challenged our brewers to come up with some out-there ideas. Our resident Canadian, Garrett, came up with the winning concept.

Do you think it’ll be a one-off or are you considering adding it to the range after GABS?
It’s a one-off. We want to keep approaching GABS with fresh and fun ideas.

What do you think of the concept of GABS?
Love it. Anything that promotes excitement around the diversity of beer is always in my good books.

The GABS Brewer Q&A series returns on Monday with the guys from the Illawarra Brewing Company.

The Great Australasian Beer Spectapular (aka GABS) is on in Melbourne on May 23-25, 2014.
