Stone & Wood’s Counter Culture has released Peachy Cheeks, a peach Bellini sour.
A collaboration between Counter Culture and Northern Rivers LGBTQIA+ organisation, Queer Family Inc, it’s s beauty: a sassy Bellini sour, that pours sweet layers of peach, mango and apricot puree over a pale and wheat malt, Blue Lake rolled wheat base, rounded out with a lactic sour pitch and ready to roll at 6.69% ABV.
One dollar from every litre sold of Peachy Cheeks at Stone & Wood’s Brisbane and Byron Breweries goes to local LGBTQIA+ organisations who are working to support their community.
Queer Family is a peer-led, volunteer run not-for-profit that aims to improve mental health and reduce social isolation by creating safe spaces for LGBTQIA+ people and allies in the Northern Rivers to connect and build community.
Peachy Cheeks will be sold in packs of two 500ml cans via Stone & Wood’s online store, as well in bottle shops and on tap at the Stone & Wood breweries in Byron Bay and Brisbane, albeit in limited volumes.
Peachy’s stockists listing will go live online Monday, 29 March. They will only be partying at these vibing bottleshops and venues for 10 weeks or so before the next Counter Culture release rides in on the next float.
