Temple Brewing have started a new year paying tribute to their history, with the Brunswick East brewery releasing a collab with their former head brewery, Glenn Harrison. These days, Glenn’s the technical brewer at Ellerslie Australia; a job that sees him test and trial the suppliers' hops and other brewing ingredients to discover how brewers can get the most out of them.

For It’s Always Balmy In Brunswick, he brought Trident Salvo along with him to the famous beachside suburb (that’s a joke - please don’t go looking for Brunswick by the sea). That Trident hop is actually a blend by America’s Hopsteiner, while Salvo is a hop-derived product designed to boost beer aromas and flavours. The chosen style was a saison and if you're wondering where the "beach" and "balmy" references in the name and can come from, that's thanks to the added fresh lemon balm. Crack into the collab and you'll find a largely classic saison that's dry but filled with distinct notes of fresh citrus alongside, a herbal spice and a soft touch of bubblegum.

If you're looking for a lucky beer for a new year, Temple have you covered with the return of their 888 beer, which this year celebrates the Year of the Rabbit.
