Aussies. Heads up! There’s a new craft beer taking advantage of our love for colloquialism. The beer is named Tinnies, and it’s available now Australia wide.
Tinnies is crafted in-house and brewed in Melbourne by Bricklane, brewery, with Tinnies born out of a desire to create a straight-talking craft beer. The first Tinnies seasonal release is a range of easy-drinking beers, perfect for the warmer months. It includes Pale Ale, Tropical XPA and a Session IPA.
Pale Ale (4.9%): A hop-driven Pale Ale with stone fruit, pine and citrus characters. Light amber in colour with a slight haze. A good balance of bitterness, biscuity malt with mild caramel flavours, backed up with stone fruit, pine and citrus characters.
Session IPA (3.5%): Bursting flavours of citrus and pine with a hop-driven finish. Deep gold in colour with a high haze. Full flavoured like a full-strength IPA. A low IBU that tastes far more bitter (like 60 IBU). Bursting flavours of citrus and pine with a hop-driven finish.
Tropical XPA (4.2%): Extra Pale Ale, full of tropical and citrus aromas with an exciting hopped finish. Pale gold in colour with a clear to a slight haze. A low bitterness, to make this beer seasonable. Full of tropical and citrus aromas with an exciting hopped finish. Aromas of Mango Lychee & pineapple.
Each beer is presented in a carefully designed can to represent the different elements of the Tinnies range and celebrate the artistry behind the creation of the beers. Sydney artist Alex Lehours designed the bright Tropical XPA can. The graffiti creator says he was inspired by the brewing process and the summer season.
“I loved the idea of the can representing what the brewer would be thinking when he’s creating the beer. The design is really an explosion of the thoughts and ideas that would be going through a brewer’s mind as part of that process. And it’s all held together with a wave to bring home the summer-ness of it all,” says Lehours.
The Tinnies range is available now at Liquorland, First Choice Liquor and Vintage Cellars.
