One Drop Kellogg's Cornflakes Nitro Milkshake IPA

This is One Drop’s first IPA in a can, and first nitro beer in a can - significant milestones for a young brewery. It’s also their first collab - and what a collab! One Drop teamed up with Kellogg’s, who are also based in Botany, to make a beer loaded with cornflakes.

According to Bruno Madonna, director of research and technology at Kellogg: “We’ve always had a love of combining innovation with great tasting product at Kellogg. Kellogg’s Corn Flakes has been a catalyst to many amazing creations over the years so partnering with local Botany brewery, One Drop, seemed like a no brainer. This beer is a fun way to remind Aussies of the versatility of cereal.”

But this isn’t just a cornflakes beer. It’s a Cornflakes Nitro Milkshake IPA. And we need to be upfront about this: this beer is insane.

If you’ve ever complained that a beer is “too fruity” or “too sweet” or that “beer isn’t beer anymore”, just don’t even bother.

However… if you love fruity beers; if you love crazy beers; if you love milkshake IPAs; if you love smooth, creamy nitro beers; if you love fun, experimental, party-in-my-mouth, wow-I’ve-never-had-a-beer-like-this-before beers… then hunt this down and brace yourself.

The nitro in this beer (with clear instructions on the can about how to activate it) ensures a full body and a thick white head. But that’s only part of it - it’s also dosed with strawberries, passionfruit, mango, and coconut, a hit of vanilla extract, and a boatload of lactose. The result? A faceful of sweet, creamy fruit. We’re talking coconut, super ripe strawberries, banana nectar (where’s that coming from?!), and pineapple sweetness. The Sabro, Citra and Simcoe hops add a touch of bitterness, but their main role seems to be to power along the fruity flavours, which linger in the mouth like best friends who come over for dinner and stay around talking til after 2am.

I’ll say it again: insane.

NB One Drop will be selling the beer in limited edition mixed 16-packs with their AIBA gold medal-winning Blueberry Sour, Botany Bay Lager and XPA.
