Badlands is using five hops in this “whack you over the head with hops stuffed in a soft fluffy pillow of a beer” : Chapter Two unleashes some new hops: Galaxy, Mosaic, Lemondrop, Trident Hop Blend and experimental Aussie Hop, ‘016’. Upfront tropical aromas of Mango, Mandarin and Passionfruit. A smooth, lush candy mid pallet continues to deliver sultry gasps of Lemon Zest and Lychee, with a mellow, long-lasting bitterness to clean and claim another sip. Badlands take on the style is to a lighter haze and a firmer bitterness than some Moreish and dangerously drinkable at 6.3%abv.
Badlands Brewery was established in 2010 by ex-Pom Jon Shiner who has been executing his mission statement ever since: – “ To produce world-class, nationally recognised, full-flavoured premium beers, using the finest ingredients and best practice brewing processes” .
Badlands beers can be found in virtually every self-respecting craft beer venue across NSW and the ACT and has recently started distribution into Victoria. All Badlands Brewery’s beers are made only with malted wheat and barley, water, yeast and hops and come to you as nature intended – unfiltered and free of preservatives and additives. They will never contain cheap adjuncts favoured by the larger breweries, such as corn, rice or cane sugar and are hand-crafted, a 1000lt a time on a manual, hands-on brewhouse. Head Brewer Jon Shiner’s brewing philosophy is that Badlands’ beers should be deeply satisfying, characterful and interesting right to the bottom of your third pint.
