Bringing Australia to the UK
Whenever we’re in the UK a catch up with old friends from Camden Town Brewery is always on the cards and this time, we brewed a beer with them!
You can call our connection a brotherhood, which over the years has given both breweries opportunities in different markets and a more global perspective.
Camden Town Brewery started from humble beginnings in North London underneath The Horseshoe pub in Hampstead, where founder Jason Cuppaidge set out to brew better lager. Since then Camden has become a destination brewery with a cult like following, championing a unique style lager and an array of seasonal specials.
The locales of Camden and the Northern Rivers share a comparable mindset; alternative, creative and laid back. This combined with the two breweries’ similar ethos makes collaborating and uniting with Camden an enjoyable walk in the park.
This UK trip rather than catching up over beers, we worked side by side with their brewery crew to produce a collaboration brew, The Versus Lager. As soon as we were given the opportunity, Brad jumped on a plane with a bunch of fresh Aussie Hops (including Galaxy) to get straight to work. Whilst it’s still Winter at home, this brew is perfect for UK’s summertime, it’s a hop charged lager, showcasing tropical mango and pineapple aromas with a refreshing finish
To celebrate we’re launching the beer today at their ‘Aussie Cookout’, underneath Camden’s tanks. The event has sold out but if your keen to try and you’re in London, jump on their website and they’ll point you in the right direction.
What an excuse to cross the waters and spend time with a like-minded team.
