What beer are you making for GABS?
It’s a creamy IPA with pineapple and coconut.
What’s it called?
Pina Colada IPA
Where did the inspiration come from?
We love cocktails, so it just made sense to try and echo the flavours in a pina colada, in a beer. Besides, who doesn’t like getting caught in the rain?
For those who might over-indulge, do you have a suggestion for a post-GABS hangover remedy?
I can’t go past the old faithful of a Bloody Mary. I love them so much, that we had to put them on the menu at The Nest, complete with Rockwell & Sons beef jerky. Match that with a bacon and egg roll from Candied Bakery in Spotswood and it will fix anything!
Finally, finish this sentence, craft beer is …
… my happy place. I love making it, I love drinking it, I love talking about it and I love dreaming up new beers. It is the cause of, and outlet for, all of my inspiration.
The Great Australasian Beer Spectapular is at the Royal Exhibition Building in Melbourne on May 22-24 and Australian Technology Park, Sydney on May 30.
