Avid readers of The Crafty Pint and its newsletter will recall mention of a short run IPA from the Gold Coast's serial medal-winners. Well, now it's back as the latest in Burleigh Brewing's longnecked "Bit On The Side" range, following My Wife's Bitter, Fannie Gertrude and the Black Giraffe. This is a take on the American reinvention of the classic British style, featuring a blend of specialty malts and five US hops and ending up with the 7 per cent / 70 IBU measurements that has proved a winner in a handful of other beers of its ilk. According to Burleigh Brewing CEO, Peta Fielding: "Sampling at the brewery has the whole crew excited. Brennan describes the FIGJAM IPA as boasting 'wonderful citrus and mango aromas, with those hop driven characteristics flowing through to a clean, robust flavour'." Launched at the brewery on October 4 and heading across the land after that.
