Strawberries are in this summer and they will be making appearances in some of your favourite alcoholic beverages. Here are our top picks for refreshing summer strawberry beverages!
‘Friend in Hand’ Strawberry Berliner Weisse
All Hands Brewing House have launched ‘Friend in Hand’, a Strawberry Berliner Weisse (3.5% ABV, 5IBU), just in time for summer.
The brain-child of Head Brewer, Sam Clayman, and his right-hand man, Brayden Lew, the exclusive Strawberry Berliner Weisse was conceived to contribute and help support the farmers during the strawberry scandal. The brewery purchased a whopping 400KG of strawberries from grower Leonard Smith in the Glasshouse region of Queensland. Combining two award-winning varieties, Splenda and Red Rhapsody, the perfectly ripe, fresh strawberries were added to ferment and mature with the beer for a solid month for complete flavour transfer.
The limited-edition, small batch summer brew is light and refreshing with a lively carbonation, giving the sensations of wandering through a spring patch of strawberries. Brewed in-house within the onsite microbrewery and transferred to a 1200L serving tank, the ruby-red beauty is available now priced at $5 (250ml) and $9.50 (450ml).
Available now at: All Hand Brewing House, 22 The Promenade, Sydney
