World Beer Cup 2023 – Silver

If you’ve been to the Northern Beaches, you know there is a market for this beer. Far out, if you’ve driven your car through the beaches with the window down you know there’s a market for this beer. Brewed for the local British expats and perfect for a session on the holy day, the Sunday Bitter comes in at a repeatable 3.8 percent ABV.

Holding a nice little head, Sunday Bitter – which took out silver at the prestigious World Beer Cup in the States in 2023 – has a colour reminiscent of old gold coins and wooden Midlands pubs. The aroma is malt driven with a hint of sugared biscuits and sourdough starter.

Brits would be pleased to find this is a beer that does what it says on the tin: a low carbonation combined with subtle earthy and fleetingly sweet caramel notes are reminiscent of pubs with tankards, hand pumps and regulars who remind the landlord not to sell out to "one of the chains" daily. It ends with an appropriately swift and bitter kick that does its best to make you forget it’s effectively a mid-strength.

This is a pond-jumping crossover that could do more for UK-AUS relations than some submarines or a little urn full of burnt stumps could ever hope.
