A BEER crafted at Beechworth inspired by iconic Melbourne restaurant MoVida is now in production.
Bridge Road Brewers is making a series of beers in partnership with its favourite restaurants.
Bridge Road Brewers founder Ben Kraus said he was stoked to team up with MoVida for the first brew in the series.
He said the collaboration followed an ongoing commercial relationship and through the MoVida team working to promote Victoria's High Country.
“MoVida wanted to create a beer that suited their venues including Bar Tini as well as pair with foods across its menus,” he said.
“They were also inspired by our region and wanted to include local produce. The result is a High Country Grisette (a Belgian farmhouse style ale) featuring brined caper leaves from Long Lane Capers and locally grown Bergamot (citrus) from Mountain Yuzu.”
MoVida bar manager Ellis Nuttall welcomed it.
“We chose to be a part of this because it gave our staff the opportunity to be hands-on in the making of a product that we would end up selling to the consumer, the process gives our staff a complete view and understanding of the processes and people involved in creating excellent products,” he said.
The Grisette will be available at MoVida venues and Bridge Road Brewers from August 8.
The second beer will be a collaboration with Three Blue Ducks (Bronte, Roseberry, Brisbane) and The Farm at Byron Bay.
The third will be with Temporada and Aubergine restaurants in Canberra, who will work with something exciting from Clonakilla winery.
