With a twist of real watermelon, cucumber and mint & hopped with Galaxy, The Gatherer is beer – but not as you know it. With its blush hue and zesty flavour, this beer challenges preconceived notions about ‘regular beer’. Get creative – serve it up with a slice of citrus and fresh mint in a stemless glass, if you like.
The Gatherer cocktail series introduces Brisbane’s brewing and hospitality elite, who we’ve tasked with showcasing The Gatherer in a cocktail.
On the mix-up stage, we have Liam Shephard from Byblos Bar with his The Gatherer x Rosé Vermouth cocktail dubbed ‘Far Far Away’ which landed Liam a spot in the finals of our The Gatherer cocktail comp.
‘I wanted to really bring out & amplify all of the flavours in The Gatherer while creating something absolutely crushable. The passionfruit & peach bring out the fruity notes in the galaxy hops, the mint brings out the freshness of The Gatherer’s ingredients while the lime adds a zesty undertone. The rose vermouth compliments the blush hue of The Gatherer, while adding complexity to the bitter notes of the beer & balancing the sweetness of the honey. The result looks like a tiki drink perfect for the beach & with the lower ABV you could drink it all day long’ – Liam Shephard, Byblos.
