Burleigh Brewing Co’s new tropical pale ale, appropriately named Twisted Palm, made its debut this week at Johnny Ringo’s.
The Pale Ale reminds one of summer nights relaxing on the deck of an old breezy Queenslander with good friends and even better music.
With hints of orange, mango, and papaya it goes down easily making it a winner for those just finding their feet in the beer sphere.
It is quite a light ale (4.2%) and leaves you wanting more after you’ve polished off your first one or two stubbies.
The night proved to be a success led by Brennan Fielding, brewmaster and owner at Burleigh who gave Brisbane Weekender a run down on what it took to make the brew.
“There was a gap in our beer journey…this beer is lighter and more fruity,” says Fielding.
“There’s been tonnes of excitement and it has been…really well received.”
There are other pale ales in the Burleigh range however this is their most recent and certainly appeals to young and hip urbanites.
The headway the beer has made so far in the current market of boutique and craft breweries leaves Burleigh a true leader.
It optimizes the use of natural ingredients to create a nice refreshing beer just perfect for a lazy day at the beach, which happens to be what it was inspired by:
“…Burleigh in a bottle,” says Fielding.
This pale ale is well worth a try next time you’re on the hunt for a beer that is lighter and more summery.
