Thunder Road Launches Shamrock Dark Lager – In honour of St. Patrick’s Day this Saturday 17th March, we’ve inaugurated our new pilot brewing system with a special Limited Edition “Shamrock” Dark Lager.
This special brew is named after one of Australia’s finest brewers of the late 1800′s, The Shamrock Brewing & Malting Co., which was based in East Collingwood on the Yarra River.
So this St. Paddy’s, join us in celebrating an icon of Australian brewing history as you raise a glass with family and friends.
We’d also like to thank Crafty Pint’s James Smith who joined our brew team when we created our Shamrock Dark Larger. His brewing exploits will be posted in a short video documentary later this week on www.craftypint.com.
The lesson with this beer is simple: don’t be afraid of the dark! Great session beers don’t always have to be light in colour and this classic dark lager style demonstrates excellent drinkability and a rich hue.
Thunder Road Shamrock Dark Lager will be on tap at Beer deluxe in Federation Square during the Victorian MicroBrew Showcase this Wednesday and Thursday 14th and 15th March 2012.
And be warned: this is a very limited, small quantity release so come to Beer Deluxe while it’s still on tap!
