Inspired by the gaming sensation ‘Fortnite’, we managed to get our hands on the last four cases of Fortnight Orange Injustice NEIPA – a cool collaboration brew between Brendale Brewing Co. and White Lies Brewing Co. Made with 100% Fortnight hops, it has a soft, smooth mouthfeel with wonderful notes of apricot, peach and banana.
Ryan and Elsie McCausland are the husband and wife team behind the Brendale Brewing Company. Ryan and Elsie bought the brewery back in September 2014 when it was known as Brew by U, a brew-it-yourself style operation where visitors could make their own affordable beer to take home. But it wasn’t long before they realised the added potential in providing locals with something other than the beers found on tap elsewhere in their part of Brisbane.
DID YOU KNOW?
You might not have heard of Brendale. It’s a small industrial suburb in the northern suburbs of Brisbane. It’s synonymous with wholesalers, the steel industry and the South Pine electrical substation. What it may also soon be known for is beer.
