To celebrate their coinciding third birthdays, St Andrews Beach Brewery and Jetty Road Brewery decided what better way to celebrate than a meeting of minds and brewing talent.
Two brands at a similar stage of their journeys, both have seen significant growth over the past eighteen months, despite the global climate.
St Andrews Beach Brewery Brand Manager Tim Purchase shared “Grant (Jetty Road Brewery’s Co-Founder) and I have always bounced around the idea of coming together to brew a collaboration beer. With restrictions in Victoria starting to ease, we thought the time was right to come together to brew a beer to not only celebrate our birthday but provide our loyal community with an exciting new beer after an unusual 2020.”
Coastal Fiesta Orange Witbier was the result. Head Brewers Matt Stitt and Blake Bowden’s goal was to add an Aussie twist to a Belgian classic.
"Coastal Fiesta is a Belgian style Witbier brewed with orange peel and coriander seeds for those classic Belgian characteristics of citrus and spice. We then added some new world hops to freshen it up into a summery, refreshing ale that is fitting for the Mornington Peninsula festive season" said Jetty Brewery Co-Founder and Head Brewer Blake Bowden.
Coastal Fiesta is now available from St Andrews Beach Brewery and Jetty Road Brewery's taprooms.
