Introducing Whistling Horse Specific Ale, a keg-only collaboration beer made with our pals from Whistling Kite (WA) and The Horse (NSW) and the grand prize for kicking some serious beer goals in our Weird Good campaign last year.
We were stoked to have the opportunity to brew a beer with two iconic Aussie venues from either side of the country and create something that would be a reflection of both brands, and the people behind them. With spring around the corner, it only made sense to create a light, fruity, drinkable beverage and this collaboration brew is exactly that.
An easy drinking ale with a light and refreshing malt body complemented by a blend of American and European hops, Whistling Horse is a welcome to spring and the warmer weather. Brewed at a 4.4% ABV with a fruit salad hop aroma, you'll notice the passionfruit, citrus and strawberry characters jumping right out of the glass!
We sent two of our own crew into each venue involved to suss out some of the finer details behind Whistling Horse.
Hit play to listen to Leandra from Beerfarm talk all things Whistling Horse with Kerry-Anne and Eddy from Whistling Kite.
Ben susses the juicy details behind this collaboration brew with Jenna from The Horse below.
