Coorinna is believed to be one of the names that Aboriginal Tasmanians called the now extinct Thylacinus, or as we know it, the Tasmanian Tiger. We named this beer after the marsupial with distinct tiger-like stripes as one of the main ingredients comes from its former homeland, Tasmania.
Wild harvested Tasmanian Pepperberries are at the forefront of Coorinna imparting a hint of citrus and fresh-cracked pepper. Wakatu and Motueka hops from New Zealand were added for notes of tropical fruit and lime and lemon zest.
You may recall that we used Tasmanian Pepperberries in last years VCBW collaboration brew, Tu Meke. Coorinna is a spinoff from Tu Meke and although the recipe has changed the refreshing citrus zest aroma and crisp, dry, peppery finish remain the same.
Coorinna is on the liquor store shelves now for a limited time, and of course is available in our Tasting Room. This one will make it over to the Island and the Interior so keep an eye out!
