2 Brothers / Feral Collaborator

2 Brothers

Published May 21, 2012

What better way to mark 20 years holding the Australian International Beer Awards than to invite two of the most successful Australian breweries of recent times to make a beer together? For its landmark year, the RASV invited WA's Feral and Victoria's 2 Brothers to brew a beer using all Australian ingredients. The former was subsequently named Champion Large Australian Brewery at the 2012 awards, while 2 Brothers continued its run of form with a shortlisting for Champion Small Australian Brewery. The beer they created - an Australian take on the modern Brown Ale - is a deeply brown one that opens up with familiar tropical fruit notes from the hops and plenty of chocolate, caramel - possibly even vanilla - aromas too. There's a nice balance between roasty, chocolate and caramel and some orange-tinged citrus hop flavours. Bitterness is well restrained in an eminently drinkable beer worthy of such an occasion.
