7% abv 50IBU
An English Style India Pale Ale (UKIPA) traditionally brewed with bucket loads of Tasmanian hops including Fuggles and Goldings then carefully laced with lashings of a specially made Aqua Vitae, a 60% spirit distilled from Tasmanian cider. The spirit is then rested on oak chips from a white wine barrel before being released into the beer. It’s not one for the faint hearted.
One eye, one arm, hit by a musket ball, soon to be pickled in brandy and still up for it… “KISS ME HARDY” Here’s one for the cock-eyed optimist! Join us in a toast to Vice Admiral Lord Horatio Nelson. And what a way to salute such an optimist than with our Traditional English India Pale Ale laced by Tasmanian’s own ‘Belgrove Distillery’ with lashings of a specially prepared ‘60% Cask Strength Oak Aged ‘Aqua Vitae’ Spirit.
So turn your ship upwind, wrap one arm around the mainsail and shout out loudly “Kiss me Hardy!”
