Queensland’s Eumundi Brewery and Bundaberg Rum Distillery have joined forces to delight beer and rum fans, with a new summer collaboration, Eu-Bundy Spiced Rum Lager.

Head Brewer at Eumundi Brewery Chris Sheehan said the partnership continues to combine two of the finest Queensland producers – Eumundi Brewery and the Bundaberg Rum Distillery – both with strong roots in the local community.

“When we released the Eu-Bundy Black Rum and Plum Pudding Ale last year, we were astonished by its popularity, with people lining up to get their hands on the festive release,” said Sheehan.

“We’re confident this classic blend will be the cheers of the town – and is bound to be a hit with those looking to crack open a cold one with the beer lovers in their life, or a great pairing to enjoy themselves this summer.

“It’s a classic Aussie Lager mixed with a classic Aussie Rum,” Chris says. “A lagery lager with Bundaberg Spiced Rum – lightly infused with hints of vanilla and aromatic spices.”

Duncan Littler from the Bundaberg Rum Distillery is also eager to welcome the new lager, which he describes as “the best of the two best worlds, in one can”.

“Last year we developed the Black Rum and Plum Pudding Ale which was a darker ‘crafty’ beer. This year, we are using a crisp Lager base and combining it with our Bundaberg Spiced Rum, giving drinkers a cracking rum infused beer that has a super refreshing taste.”

A limited release of the Eu-Bundy Spiced Rum Lager, which is five per cent ABV is now available at the Bundaberg Rum Distillery, The Imperial Hotel Eumundi, online at eumundibrewery.com.au and other select stores in Queensland.
