New England Brewing Co.
7.7% Imperial Chai Brown Ale. We couldn’t believe we found the legends from “Chai” in Repton Northern NSW. These guys have been blending spices since 1987 – when most of us were drinking Blend 43. We’ve added their Rainbow Chai to a sweet malt base to get a luscious, rich copper coloured beer with a creamy tan head. The aroma is classic chai with cinnamon, clove and cardamom dominating, before a smooth body of warming caramel. Tea time!
