Dessert lovers of Brisbane, we’ve found your new favourite brew. Northgate’s Aether Brewing, creators of some seriously creative craft brews, have teamed up with the baked goods legends at Flour & Chocolate to create the beer we never knew we needed: the Nitro Bee Sting Cream Ale.
In the words of the brewers, this is “a beer so tasty you’d think it was fresh from the oven.” Taking all the best parts of Flour & Chocolates honey-glazed, cream-stuffed bee sting pastries and pairing them with malty hops, they’ve created a golden number that will have you in raptures, with aromas of vanilla and custard and a hint of honey and almond. Basically, one sip and you’ll think you’ve bitten into a fresh bee sting pastry.
Currently you can get a pour of the beer fresh from Aether Brewing’s taps (while it lasts), or you can pick up some cans to drink at home. Word is the new brew will also be hitting the shelves at some local bottle shops soon too, so keep an out for that—beer for dessert from now on sounds like a good plan to us.
