Proudly independent Newtown brewery and distillery, Young Henrys has announced their next Brewers B-side release, “From Where You’d Guava Be”. The session Passionfruit and Guava sour, released on Monday, 16 November, is available in venues, bottle-os, their online store and Newtown Tasting Bar.
Young Henrys Head Brewer, Jesse Searls and Brewer, Andre Keller created the limited summer release, which will become the biggest run of B-sides for the brewery to date. This full-flavoured session sour is the best way to welcome the return of summer, striking the perfect balance between the punch and tartness of tropical fruits and the sweetness of premium German Pilsner and wheat malts.
To achieve this unique light-coloured festive beer, Jesse Searls notes the complexities that went into it, “Whilst a super sessionable beer to drink, it was a pretty complex brewing process, with multiple fruit injections and intricacies in order to achieve the flavour and aroma we wanted”.
The Brewers B-Sides series are the “alternative tracks to our hit singles”, providing the brewers the chance to get weird and experimental with recipes, while shedding light on the legends who make them. For “From Where You’d Guava Be” Brewer, Andre Keller played with flavours inspired by classic summer fruits:
“The idea of making a sour started when a mate gave to me some interesting fruit purées samples and sours are the best kind of beer style to play with fruits, adding the fact that they are super refreshing beers and summer is knocking on the door.”
“From Where You’d Guava Be” will be Young Henrys second B-Side release in tinnies, following their Blueberry Sour “Dark Sour of the Moon” released earlier this year. The brewery made the switch to tinnies for the majority of their core range products back in 2016, with the aluminium cans being infinitely recyclable, chill faster and protect beer from faults far better than glass bottles.
With summer fast approaching, the release of “From Where You’d Guava Be” has come at the perfect time. Take it from Head Brewer, Jesse Searls, “I’m most looking forward to drinking an ice cold tinnie of this in my shorts and sunnies on a hot summer’s day at the beach or park”.
Young Henrys “From Where You’d Guava Be” Brewers B-Side is available in venues, bottle-os, the Young Henrys online store and on tap at their Newtown Tasting Bar.
