Australian Beer Company (ABCo), the Coca-Cola Amatil and Casella joint venture, has announced plans for a new craft beer range, launching in December.
Under the master brand Yenda, referring to the New South Wales town where the ABCo brewery is based, the range will include a Pale Ale, India Pale Ale, Unfiltered Lager and a midâ€strength Ale.
The Yenda Pale Ale and Yenda India Pale Ale will be previewed at a number of events during Sydney Craft Beer Week.
They will be accompanied by the launch of the small batch brew, Stirling Castle, a collaboration between ABCo brew master, Andy Mitchell and UK-based IBD International Young Brewer of the Year, Rob Percival. The beer commemorates the arrival of the first English India Pale Ale in Australia on the ‘Stirling Castle’ in 1835.
Further plans for the Australian Beer Company craft beer range will be announced in December 2014.
