BrewDog Australia Announces Collaboration Series

BrewDog Australia Announces Collaboration SeriesFrom BrewDog:

A month has passed since we announced BrewDog Australia is hiring a Head of Production to take the helm on all brewing operations down under, and the response has been incredible. It’s going to be a tough task to narrow down the list of talented and passionate brewers to a single individual who will be the heart of our Australian brewery. If you think you have what it takes to oversee our Brisbane brewhouse, be sure and apply soon!

In the meantime, we have more exciting news from Australia. We’ve teamed up with the Sydney and Adelaide Beer & BBQ Festival to collaborate with five of Australia’s leading craft beer breweries – and our Global Head of Production Jason Pond will be packing his bags and making the long trip from Scotland to take part in all of them.

In three short years the Adelaide based festival has become the second largest Beer Festival in the nation and this July they're rolling out the winning formula in Sydney as well. Tickets for both events will be released in the next week.

In the next few weeks, Jason will be touching down to crank things up on a series of kick-ass Aussie collaborations, and the five beers will be released at the Beer & BBQ Festivals in Sydney on the 29 June – 1 July, and in Adelaide on the 6-8 July. We are psyched to reveal the Australian breweries Jason will be jetting off to:-

·        Green Beacon Brewing Co (Brisbane)

·        Batch Brewing Company (Sydney)

·        Capital Brewing Co (Canberra)

·        Hop Nation (Melbourne)

·        Mismatch Brewing Co (Adelaide)

These inventive breweries are leading the charge of the Australian craft beer industry, breaking down the walls of industrial beer as they go. Jason and head brewers from the five are already in cahoots, working hard on five very different but equally mind-blowing recipes. Ingredients such as jalapeños, raspberries, pineapple, chocolate and hazelnuts have all been thrown in the ring (to mention but a few), and of course the use of local ingredients.

We caught up with Jason in between two of these planning sessions, as he gets ready to head to the Southern Hemisphere and brew five world-class beers over the next few weeks. “Can’t wait for you to try the collabs,” he said. “We’ve got something pretty special planned for you all – and I’m looking forward to exploring Australia through some of its leading craft beer breweries, exchanging knowledge and experimenting with local ingredients as we go!”

To keep up with the latest on these collaborations – and all the other BrewDog Australia news – check out the channels on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter. Bookmark those sites to discover what each of the final five beers are and also for live updates from the brewdays as Jason mashes in. We’ll also be hosting a Tap Takeover and Meet the Brewer in Brisbane while he’s here – more info on this in the next week. Keep ‘em peeled!
