Brick Land Brewing is adding two new fruity beers to its Sidewinder non-alcoholic beer portfolio, with a Lime XPA and Passionfruit XPA joining the popular range.
Over four years, Brick Lane has developed an extensive portfolio of brands, including its core Brick Lane range, Sidewinder no and low alc Sunsetter ginger beer and Someday sour beers.
Paul Bowker, founder and CEO of Brick Lane, said that in a category dominated by lagers and pale ales, these new flavours will add further spark to the growing no and low alcohol category.
“The no and low alcohol segment has well and truly announced its arrival in the Australian beer market,” Bowker said.
“With strong awareness of the benefits of the no and low alcohol segment, consumers are now looking for choice within this space. With Sidewinder we are giving everyone the opportunity to explore and enjoy super tasty beers in a variety of styles, be it Hazy Pale, XPA or fruit driven refreshment found in the innovative new Lime and Passionfruit Sidewinders.
“All these alternatives provide even greater freedom to enjoy beer, including on occasions where a no alcohol version is a better choice.”
The brewery’s tasting notes state, “Sidewinder Lime XPA delivers a fresh golden haze with aromas of lime juice, orange oil and citrus hops notes reminiscent of grapefruit and lemon, with stone fruit esters obtained during the fermentation process. The flavour is super zingy with fresh lime peel notes supported by medium-low hop bitterness and tropical hop flavours, and biscuity malt character and body.”
Adding, “Sidewinder Passionfruit XPA offers a fresh golden haze with bright aromas of passionfruit, guava and mango immediately present. The flavour is super refreshing with passionfruit paired with a medium-low bitterness and tropical hop flavour, and biscuity malt characters.”
The new Sidewinder beers have an ABV of less than 0.5 per cent (0.1 standard drinks) and are available for independent retailers with an RRP of $55 for a 16pk case and $15 per four-pack.
