Sail-World.com : Bottoms Up! Time for Fanny Gertrude Bickie Beer

Bottoms Up! Time for Fanny Gertrude Bickie Beer

'Fanny Gertrude - immortalised in boutique beer.'    Jeni Bone    Click Here to view large photo
Sounds like a naughty proposal, but Burleigh Brewing is taking it very seriously! Fermenting in the tank right now, 'Fanny Gertrude Bickie Beer' will be ready for bottling (and drinking!) in late May, and to be supped at a TetraMedia event during the Sanctuary Cove International Boat Show.

As Peta Fielding, CEO at Burleigh Brewing explains: 'We have five core beers in our range and a couple of times a year we let the brew team go a bit crazy in what we call our ‘Bit on the Side Department’and come up with a new beer, for release in only a limited quantity in collectable bottles. The first two in this series were ‘My Wife’s Bitter’, followed by ‘Black Giraffe’. And now we're about to release ‘Fanny Gertrude's Bickie Beer’!'

The curious name was inspired by Peta’s Grandma’s Anzac bickies. 'And my Grandma's name really was Fanny Gertrude!'

The beer is described as 'a smooth, creamy ale, the colour of a well-baked Anzac bickie, containing oats and organic coconut - supported by a blend of three specialty ‘biscuit’ malts to provide the beautiful bickie colour and complement the specialty bickie ingredients'.

The brewers have used a 100% pure vanilla addition in the brew, to give it that 'fresh baked bickie' flavour and as many ingredients as possible are sourced locally.

If your mouth is watering, get yourself along to Burleigh Brewing’s 'Tanks, Tales and Tasting', Saturday 7 May, from 2pm for an hour. You’ll get expert insight into boutique beer brewing, sampling of four Burleigh Beers and a glass with logo to take home. The bar stays open until 4pm so you can stay on and soak up the atmosphere.

Tap Room happenings take place the first Friday of every month, with a local band and German sausage BBQ. Best of all, profits go to a local charity or community group. If a tour takes your fancy, you can savour the ins and outs of production on the first Saturday of every month.

For up to date info on Tap Room and Brewery Door opening hours, check out the website at www.burleighbrewing.com. Burleigh Brewing, 17A Ern Harley Drive, Burleigh Heads, Tel: (07) 5593 6000.
