Taste of Byron
From the rivers and rainforest of Byron Bay, Pig ‘N’ Whistle West End is excited to present an evening showcasing the beer and gin of the area we love and know so well. Oh! And don’t forget the canapés that will be complementing them!
Brookie’s Slow and Dry Gin
In the heart of the rainforest lies Brookie’s Distillery. Founded 30 years ago, the Brook family purchased an old run down dairy in the hinterland of Byron Bay which they regenerated into an oasis of vegetation; a perfect home for wildlife, as well as for sourcing local botanicals used in their recipes today. With two exceptional distillers, Jim McEwan (‘The Cask Whisperer’) and Eddie Brook, the abundance of knowledge in the industry and passion for Australian rainforest fruits and flavours, shine through in their creations. Rapidly becoming a must have tipple in your bar cart, these gins are not ones to miss!
Slow Gin – made in the traditional style of the English ‘Sloe’ gin using the Davidson Plum, unique to the sub-tropical region of Byron Bay, expect flavours of watermelon, rose and plum.
Dry Gin – a classic gin distilled with native botanicals foraged from the rainforest.
Stone & Wood
A beer born and raised in Byron Bay by three friends that were inspired to create a village brewery. Stone & Wood is not a stranger to any Queenslander, but do you know their history?
With a love of the region’s natural beauty and community, the beer was born to share their love of living a good life and sipping on a good brew. Being proudly hand crafted, Stone & Wood uses only four ingredients – water, malt, hops and yeast. They don’t let their beer leave the brewery until its meets their high standard, so all can be included in their common goal- to brew a good life for each other, the community and themselves.
Cloud Catcher – Pale ale hopped with Galaxy, Ella and Enigma. It has a tropical stone fruit flavour and aroma.
Jasper Ale – A hoppy red ale with tropical fruit flavours, balanced with hints of caramel, toffee and hazelnut.
Green Coast Lager – unfiltered to create a light golden colour, a flavour that strikes a balance between its subtle spicy hop aroma and soft malt profile, finishing crisp and clean
