At the end of 2020 Kirrawee Bridge opened and now that it takes pedestrians over the Princes Highway, it’s no longer necessary to play a real-life game of Frogger to get from Sunday Road Brewing to the Prince Hotel. Walking between the two safely now takes just three minutes and twenty seconds (or 436 steps for those of you watching your Fitbits). That’s as good a reason as any to celebrate, right?
Sunday Road and the Prince believe it is, so they teamed up to make Over The Bridge, a returning limited release hazy pale. It pours looking like foggy mango nectar, with a waft of mango and other tropical fruits on the nose. But there’s also a hint of citrus in the aroma, and that’s what really comes in once you’re at the sipping stage. It’s less sweet sticky mango, and has more like that gentle and moreish character that orange juice can have that has you pouring yourself glass after glass until you realise you’ve polished off a litre of the stuff in one sitting.
Stock up on cans to sink at home, or, if you’re worried you’ll knock them back too quickly, try alternating schooners between the Prince and Sunday Road, interspersed with laps of the Kirrawee Bridge.
