A chat with Parched owners Carl and Pauline will quickly reveal that the brewery grew out of Carl’s long-time dream to own a small bar. And when Pauline talks about Carl’s love of brewing beer, she jokes that: “He got the bug and I came along for the ride!” But with all the work she puts into Parched – procurement, marketing, social media, decorating – she’s far from just a passenger.
When Pauline was a kid, her family lived on the Gold Coast, and her dad was the distributor of Weis products. Pauline’s favourite were Fruitos – a different kind of "small bar" to Carl’s dream. To this day, the taste of one of those ice cream bars ignites in her memories of long summer days and the fun times of childhood.
Oh Fruit Bar Sour is a gentle drinker with a smooth, sour nip. It’s the colour of passionfruit pulp, and tastes like the fruits of summer, with a dollop of lactose bringing a touch of sweetness and creaminess for balance.
This one’s for Pauline. What a champ.
