The 12 Beers Of Christmas 2023

Bright Pale Ale
As refreshing as a dip in our pure Alpine waters, Bright Pale is crisp and easy-drinking, with tropical aromas from our locally-grown hops.

Hellfire Amber Ale
Malty and nutty with floral hops, fruity Yorkshire yeast and a background caramel sweetness. Rich, sweet and malty, this is one red you’ll want to savour.

M.I.A. IPA is all about the hops! Bright Brewery’s limited-release annual American-style IPA is a celebration of juicy, tropical, floral hops, with a well-balanced bitterness and a malt structure that just lets the hops sing.

Peach and Vanilla Sour
White Peach and Vanilla Sour is light and crushable with plump peachy flavours taking centre stage and a hint of vanilla hiding in the bushels.

Alpine Lager
Voted in at #32 in the 2022 GABS Hottest 100 Craft Beer Poll, making it Victoria’s best indie lager, Alpine has subtle floral and tropical flavours sourced from our local hop growers.

Staircase Porter
Complex layered flavours of creamy espresso, bittersweet chocolate, and toffee combine with flowery hops to create this full bodied nourishing ale. 

Frostfire Australian Strong Ale
This blazing bronze brew is aged on oak, giving it a touch of vanilla and caramel sweetness, and infused with chilli.

Rule 47 Red IPA 2023
Rule 47 is the annual collaboration beer between the 7 brewers of the High Country Brewery Trail. Marking the 10th collaboration, we’ve ventured into a brew revered for its intricate balance and interplay between malt and hops – a Red IPA. Its captivating deep red tone accentuates vibrant notes of rockmelon, sun-kissed pineapple, and candied fruit, all blanketed by a rich malt aroma.

Any Day XPA
With a fresh, tropical hop aroma and flavour, Any Day is a clean and easy-drinking light XPA – perfect for any day of the week. 

Cucumber & Basil Sour Ale
As the weather warms up, it’s the perfect time to savour the mouth-watering freshness and acidic pop from cool cucumber and sweet basil. 

Dad Bod Lychee IPA
Time to embrace the Dad Bod! Kick back and relax and let Dad Bod’s subtle lychee notes hit you like a perfectly-timed dad joke at the dinner table.

Stubborn Imperial Stout 2023
Stubborn 2023 has a silky mouthfeel with moderate carbonation, strong hints of banana and fruit bowl open up into cherry and caramel as it warms up. There are heavy notes of molasses as it continues to warm. It’s about this point the heat from the rye we used in the brew becomes evident. The ABV is well hidden for something that sits at 16%; it is more reminiscent of something around the 12% range.
