Tea leafed IPA.

When the team behind the Great Australian Beer SpecTAPular asked us to create a special beer for their 2012 festival, we started by searching for musical inspiration from their Australian homeland. The tunes lead us on a wild conceptual ride but we ended up settling on this hugely floral India Pale Ale that is “dry-leafed” with a massive load of Earl Grey tea.  

Gunnamatta – the instrumental opening track of Paul Kelly’s 2004 album Ways and Means -refers to a beach break on Victoria’s Mornington Peninsula and had us thinking of good friends, cups of tea, surf, beer and rock ‘n’ roll!

As Paul Kelly says himself: “Remember, swim between the flags.”
