Rare Bird Brewing was born of the love of beer and brewing shared by three men: A Process Engineer, a Mechatronics Engineer and Environmental Scientist. Their aim is to craft unique brews reflecting their local environment, culture and place. Rare Bird is a tin shed full of stainless steel scavenged from old cheese and chocolate factories. All recipes are refined by an uncompromising commitment to improvement and constant arguments and is as unique as our bird life.
The 'AuPA' is Rare Bird Brewing’s take on the classic Australian Pale Ale style. But what is an 'Australian' Pale Ale? Apparently, it is as ill defined as the rest of our cuisine, but what we think it should be is malty, bitter and as dry as a back handed compliment. Rare Bird use the Noble Hallertau Mittelfruh hop to add a classic backbone bitterness and spice without overpowering the malty base and then combine this with Ella hops to celebrate modern Australian brewing and flavour. Subtly dry hopped to add notes of floral and spice for balance…. as unique as our bird life.
