Coastal Fiesta Orange Witbier is a collaborative effort by St Andrews Beach Brewery and Jetty Road Brewery to celebrate their third birthdays.
Located less than 20kms from each other, St Andrews Beach Brewery and Jetty Road Brewery coincidentally opened their taproom doors on the exact same day in December 2017.
“Over the past three years we have formed a great relationship with the team from Jetty Road Brewery. We’re both at a similar stage of our journeys and it’s been great to see both brands grow significantly over the past eighteen months,” said St Andrews Beach Brewery Brand Manager, Tim Purchase.
“Grant (Jetty Road Brewery’s Co-Founder) and I chat regularly and have always bounced around the idea of coming together to brew a collaboration beer. With restrictions in Victoria starting to ease, we thought the time was right to come together to brew a beer to not only celebrate our birthday but to also provide our loyal community with an exciting new beer after an unusual 2020.” Tim continued.
Head Brewers Matt Stitt and Blake Bowden’s goal was to add an Aussie twist to a Belgian classic. “Coastal Fiesta is a Belgian style Witbier brewed with orange peel and coriander seeds for those classic Belgian characteristics of citrus and spice. We then added some new world hops to freshen it up into a summery refreshing ale that is fitting for the Mornington Peninsula festive season” said Jetty Brewery Co-Founder and Head Brewer Blake Bowden.
“We wish that our local community enjoy the beer as much as we enjoyed making it and hope that the collab becomes an annual event” Blake concluded.
From Friday 11 December, Coastal Fiesta will be available from St Andrews Beach Brewery and Jetty Road Brewery’s taprooms and online stores and from select independent retailers on the Mornington Peninsula.
