The Craft & Co in Collingwood is many things: restaurant; bar; deli; function space; distillery; brewery. The team there also release wines alongside their beers and spirits and, as of winter 2019, they're looking to bring all their booze offerings into a recognisable family courtesy of a new look.

With the new look comes new beers, including a Tropical XPA previously only available on tap. They've plumped for four fruity hop varieties to do the heavy lifting – Galaxy, Vic Secret, El Dorado and Citra – and they infuse the lightly hazy, pale golden drop with stonefruit and juicy mandarin on the nose, and melon-dominated tropical fruits to taste. The result is a juicy refresher complete with a gripping, resinous bitterness cutting through the fruit.
