Yes, you read the title correctly. This April you can do a good deed and give back to the community by simply sinking a few cold ones. Sounds too good to be true, right? Wrong.
One of our favourite Sunshine Coast breweries, Brouhaha Brewery will be debuting their Karma Keg, a limited-release on-tap sour where all proceeds are donated to a great cause. All you have to do is waltz in, order a schooner from the Karma Keg, and your money will go straight to Asylum Circle, an organisation that assists and protects Queensland-based asylum seekers.
The not-for-profit initiative is the brain child of Annie Bingley from Mongrel in Brisbane, and with the assistance of the Calibre Craft Beer Trading Company and Brouhaha Brewery, the Karma Keg is now a reality.
Brewed right here on the Sunshine Coast in Brouhaha’s own tanks, the Karma Keg is a kettle sour with blood orange and passionfruit additions. Aptly named The Sunburnt Country, the sour pays homage to Australia’s beauty and the risks that some people take to enjoy its freedom.
Currently, Brouhaha is the only place on the coast serving up the Karma Keg goodness, so if you’re stuck for a way to pay it forward this month, head to Maleny for a Sunday afternoon drink or five.
And, if you find yourself thirsty while visiting the big smoke, the delicious fruity sour will be available at several Brisbane bars, including Tippler’s Tap, The Scratch, Brewski, Netherworld, The End Bar, Aether Brewing, Oxford Tap House, Saccharomyces Beer Café, Newstead Brewing Co, Zero Fox, and of course Mongrel.
Trust us, beer tastes better when it’s charitable.
