With a number of worth brewery’s continuing to resonate with Australia’s beer drinkers year after year, local legends and creators of good beer for everyone Blackman’s Brewery is looking to poll once again with one of their best brews – the Juicy Banger IPL.

A serious banger all year round, the Juicy Banger is an IPA with the body of a dry lager, hence the term they’re using for this one, the Indian Pale Lager

Launching in all its deliciousness back in Torquay 2017, the hopped-up topical brew came as part of the Blackman’s Lager Collective series and it’s proved to be one of their best creations yet. Aptly named, this brew is big on big grapefruit and citrus aromas and juicy flavours with the crisp, sharp finish of a classic lager.

Delivering beauty from every angle, it’s fresh, it’s big on flavour but not overbearing, it’s 5.8% ABV so will get you responsibly buzzed and it will 100 per cent have you reaching for more – rain, hail or shine. Incredibly satisfying, it’s a born champion and it certainly deserves a top spot on the Hottest 100 countdown.

In case you needed more incentive to cast your vote, other than supporting local and independent, all voters also enter the draw to win a share of 100 tickets to any 2022 GABS Festival!

It’s time to shoot your shot; every vote counts!
