Fancy a mango with your beer? Tweed brewer has the answer

MANGO, ginger and liquorice are hardly the flavours you would expect from a beer.

But that’s just a short roll call from the range at the Pickled Pig Brewery in South Tweed Heads.

The ironically named owner Paul Brewer admits experiments in his beer lab must be curbed.

“There are over a thousand flavours but we’re trying to bring that number down because it’s a bit of a headache to label and market all of them,” he laughs.

The latest concoction from the microbrewery is a mango lager.

“Some places might take flavouring and add it with some alcohol but we ferment local mango for two weeks and then brew it.

“It’s as organic as we can get, made with unpasteurised yeast and natural hops, brewed using the German standard,” Mr Brewer said.

He said Tweed’s favourite taste was that of the Gold Coast Blonde.

“It’s a lager with citrusy-style hops. There are different types of hops – some have a peppery, salty, oregano or rosemary accent. This beer has a distinctinct lemon base,” he said.

Pickled Pig crafts a range of organic lagers, ales, pilseners and dark beers on site at Tweed Heads South and also stocks commercial bars, including the Ivory Tavern.

As they’re all-natural, Pickled Pig beers must be kept chilled before consumption, to prevent the yeast from activating.

“Because we don’t destroy the yeast, our beer has to be kept cold in the fridge and this way it will last a year, plus,” Mr Brewer explained.
