Beer col­lab­o­ra­tion to be a win­ter hit

North East Tourist News - - Bright & District -

WHAT hap­pens when a brewer, a choco­latier and cof­fee roaster get to­gether to cook up an idea?

In the case of Bright Brew­ery, a po­tent craft beer called Stub­born Rus­sian, which will be un­leashed on Vic­to­ria’s North East this win­ter, just in time for ski sea­son.

Bright Brew­ery’s James David­son said he is ex­cited to see how the new ver­sion of their an­nual win­ter re­lease comes out, as it is the first time the brew has been in­fused with choco­late and cof­fee.

The col­lab­o­ra­tion will see around 1000 litres of the 2015 Stub­born Rus­sian hit the shelves, and both Six­pence Cof­fee’s Luke Dud­ley and Bright Choco­late’s Simeon Craw­ley were thrilled to be part of the process and pro­vid­ing lo­cal blends of their cof­fee and choco­late as in­gre­di­ents.

This is the fifth year in a row the brew­ery has done this spe­cial brew, so named be­cause its base is a Rus­sian im­pe­rial stout.

Mr David­son said the brew was de­vel­oped in co­op­er­a­tion with Luke Dud­ley from Six­pence Cof­fee and Simeon Craw­ley from Bright Choco­late, and the end prod­uct would be very po­tent, with an es­ti­mated al­co­hol con­tent of over 18 per cent and rich choco­late and cof­fee in­fused flavours.

“I think it’s great three lo­cal busi­nesses can come to­gether and col­lab­o­rate on some­thing like this,” Mr Dud­ley said.

Mr David­son said Stub­born Rus­sian is best en­joyed in small doses and served in wine glasses.

In­for­ma­tion is avail­able on www.bright­brew­ or their Face­book, Twit­ter, In­sta­gram, YouTube or Un­tappd feeds.
