The heat’s arrived and with it a delicious new pineapple beer to wrap your summerloving taste buds around at Wilson & Market.
The pineapple flavour is inspired by a new artwork to adorn the wall at Wilson & Market by Karina Eybatova, not to mention the fact it’s a delicious seasonal fruit for spring and summer.
A collaboration with Shedshaker Brewing (formerly Castlemaine Brewing Co.), the Gone Troppo Summer Ale features gorgeous tropical pineapple and passionfruit aromas from the Australian Vic Secret and Galaxy hops, with a background of pine and citrus. The ale features a subtle tart pineapple flavour with malty sweetness and crispy finish.
The small batch brew will be completed by a garnish of wood BBQ pineapple to embellish the flavours of summer.
A new wood-fired flat bread called ‘Prosciutto Primavera’ will be the perfect partner – topped with fava bean puree, prosciutto and asparagus – as well as a new selection of cheeses on offer.
For those who don’t drink beer, Wilson & Market will be serving up a signature summer cocktail, appropriately called the ‘Troppo’ akin to the beloved classic Mai Thai.
With the change in season also comes Wilson & Market’s new Sunday cheese event on the Terrace, Cheese Dreamz: all you can eat cheese, bottomless tap wine, cider and craft beer for $50 pp. Cheeses on offer include the new Amile goat’s cheese, surfaceripened buffalo milk cheese highlights from the Yarra Valley, Stone & Crowe cheeses, L’Artisan Organic Cheese who offer sensational gruyere and triple cream cheeses, and Will Studd’s Le Marquis Chevre (goat’s milk). Cheese Dreamz + Pineapple Beer runs every Sunday, 3-6pm.
