With Australia Day and the triple j Hottest 100 countdown weekend fast approaching, it’s time to mull over what the tipple of choice should be for the big weekend. With Australia Day being a celebration of everything local, it only makes sense to enjoy some of our nation’s finest craft beer and cider – namely KAIJU! – a fun, bold and distinctly comic-book style line of hop-centric cold ones.
While we may love any beer here at Forté, the KAIJU! CRUSH is a tropical pale ale that boasts a super-clean malt profile that allows a shipload of juicy tropical fruit flavours to shore up on the desert island of your palate unhindered. Fresh and moreish, KAIJU! Crush is a drop that makes a perfect Australia Day companion. It’s practically made to be enjoyed in the pool or by the beach.
Unfathomably, there are those who don’t find the taste of beer utterly irresistible. Enter KAIJU! GOLDEN AXE APPLE CIDER! And what’s better than KAIJU! typically using home-grown Victorian apples to maintain a delectable fruit flavour? This results in a crisp, refreshing style with aromas of fresh-cut apples, straw and blossom. It has everything – vegan-friendly, gluten-free cider that is just sweet enough to carry the flavour while leaving you wanting more.
But don’t let our personal favourites prevent you from diving into their extensive craft beer range. A beer connoisseur’s delight, KAIJU! offers the delectable KAIJU! METAMORPHOSIS IPA, the tasty KAIJU! AFTERMATH DOUBLE IPA, the charming KAIJU! ROBOHOP GOLDEN IPA, the enchanting KAIJU! HOPPED OUT RED, the delightful KAIJU! CTHULHU ON THE MOON BLACK IPA and the incomparable KAIJU! WHERE STRIDES THE BEHEMOTH DOUBLE INDIA BLACK ALE!
