Starting in 2018, the Adelaide Beer & BBQ organisers have flown an international brewing legend around Australia to whip up a series of collaborations to launch at the festival. In the first year, it was BrewDog, and in 2019 Collective Arts from Canada were given the nod. While visiting Adelaide, Collective Arts brewer Ryan Morrow collaborated with Stepney brewers Little Bang, creating a double West Coast IPA for which the collaborators drew upon their memories of the good old road trip.

Road Tripper looks like a Cali sunset in the glass, while bready malts sit alongside strong resinous hops aromas, with the beer's fruity side coming in the shape of pineapple, orange and tangerine. The first sip is sticky, with a touch of sweetness and those bready, biscuity malts, which are balanced by a sizeable slab of tangerine and orange flavours from the hops. The finish is huge, as the end of any road trip should be, very, very dry and with a bitterness that's big – 114 IBUs big, according to the brewers.
