Young Henrys are kicking off 2021 with a bang, dropping a new collab beer Bowlo Bitter in partnership with local favourites, alt-country/folk band Caitlin Harnett & The Pony Boys, and sending the band on an East Coast tour to celebrate, hitting some of their favourite bowling clubs along the east cost of New South Wales.
Last year was a huge one for Caitlin Harnett & the Pony Boys. After landing Best Live Act in NSW at the National Live Music Awards, and selling out multiple Sydney shows, the alt-country local darlings released their debut studio album, Late Night Essentials to critical acclaim. The album is a whisky-drenched, emotionally rich album, which has been blaring through the brewery speakers since its release back in November.
Check out the Tarantino-esque video featuring Young Henrys head brewer Jesse Searls getting into a banjo duel with Caitlin Harnett, shot by Yeah Rad.
Whether you’re watching the band from the shade of your Akubra, chucking flippers on the rink or just spectating from the sideline, Bowlo Bitter is a beer to be enjoyed by all. Tour dates are:
- Thursday, 21 January: Adamstown Bowlo, NewcastleSupport / James Thomson
- Friday, 22 January: Bangalow Bowlo, Byron Bay Support / Jollee
- Friday, 29 January: Wombarra Bowlo, Wombarra Support / Lady Lyon
- Saturday, 30 January: Petersham Bowlo, Petersham (2 sessions) Support / Papa Pilko & The Binrats
Bowlo Bitter is a thirst-quenching beauty, deep gold in colour with subtle grassy overtones from some good old Aussie Cascade hops. Inspired by the band and brewery’s joint love of the local bowlo – a place where you can enjoy a frosty schooey of amber nectar in your hand, grass between your toes and the dulcet country tones of the breeze.
Young Henrys Bowlo Bitter will be available from mid-January in select venues and Bowling Clubs.
