Tradition and Technique Come Together for Father's Day
To celebrate Father’s Day this year, we teamed up with some legends down the road – Brookie’s Gin – to create a modern twist on a hardworking favourite, The Boilermaker.
Traditionally a beer and whiskey combo, we’ve instead paired our hoppy red Jasper Ale with Brookie’s macadamia and roasted wattleseed liqueur – Mac. – and thrown in a cheeky bag of Brookfarm nuts for a Father’s Day treat he won’t forget.

What’s A Boilermaker?
Born out of the industrial train and shipyards of the 1800s, blue-collar workers who slogged their way through long days would often head to the bar to throw back a beer and a shot of whiskey before heading home.
These first boilermakers who drank the first boilermakers (a beer and shot combo) created a legacy for hardworking, thirsty fathers everywhere.
While today’s fathers may not all work at the coalface, most are still putting in long hours for their families in order to keep things going in this crazy year.
How To Drink A Boilermaker:
Traditionally, the drinker would shot the whiskey all at once and then chase with the beer. In more recent times, bartenders looking to put on a show will often drop the entire shot directly into the beer glass.
However, we believe in savouring the good things. So, here’s how we suggest you make the most of our Boilermaker pack:
First, take a sip of the mighty Jasper Ale.
Follow it with the nutty sweetness of Mac. by Brookie’s.
Then round out the experience by grabbing a handful of Brookfarm nuts.
In the company of a Dad.
To all the dads out there giving it their best, Happy Father’s Day.
