Continental Collaboration | Australia | Two Birds
If you ask people that work in the beer industry what their favourite thing about working in beer is, you’ll hear many answers – the beer, the science, the people - and the parties. One answer you may not expect is the incredible collaborative spirt of brewers and breweries. The beer industry is one that loves to share, teach and collaborate. On top of this, beer transcends language or geography, that brings people together both professionally and socially. We couldn’t be prouder to be showcasing this collaborative spirit with our Continental Collaboration series. This exciting project explores the unique stories born from history, heritage or a sense of adventure that has led to innovation in brewing, spanning every major continent on Earth.
Representing Australia in our series, we have the amazing:
Two Birds Brewing
Two Birds is Australia’s first female-owned brewing company. Located in a suburb of Melbourne, the previous AIBA Champion and multi-award-winning Two Birds Brewery typifies everything that is good about the craft beer industry in Australia. Founded by two friends, Jayne and Danielle whose shared love for the finer delights in life saw them visit breweries, wineries and dine at some world-renowned restaurants on a trip to the West Coast of the US. During the trip the pair hatched the idea to start their own brewing company and after 6 months of discussing their dream to own and run their own business, Two Birds Brewing was born.
Nugget Session Pale Ale, the beer we will be brewing with Two Birds is inspired by warm summer evenings spent with a cold beer and good friends – always our favourite part of our journeys to Australia. We have a strong connection to Two Birds Brewing that stretches as far back as a childhood swimming school and as recently as a brewer relocation. This history, partnered up with their skills in the brewhouse, got us really excited about this particular collaboration and beer. As a celebration of all things Australian, we’ve gone for all Aussie hops and yeast, with Galaxy, Vic Secret, Ella and Australian Cascade creating a clean, refreshing Pale Ale.
Nugget will be available in limited edition 500ml cans and also in a small run of mixed 6-packs containing all of our Continental Collaboration beers, which you can pre-order now on our online shop.
All the beers we brew for this project will also be available on our epic 22 day, 21 bar Continental Collaboration Tour – check out the blog here to find a date near you.
