Our second Flights of Fancy limited release is here! Meet Wild Thing, a Geraldton Wax Sour Wild Ale.
It’s bursting with zingy, citrusy notes from the fusion of Geraldton Wax and Citra hops. Full of finesse with a touch of funk, this refreshing beer is as unique as the star ingredient – a vibrant wildflower native to Western Australia.
It was a visit to Yarraville restaurant Navi that inspired Jayne to brew the beer.
“I had a dessert – a sorbet – made with Geraldton Wax, and it brought me to tears,” she said.
“It reminded me of the plant we had growing in the backyard of my childhood home in Perth.
“Since then, I have been keen to use Geraldton Wax in a beer and here is my chance!”
The can art features a reproduction of the painting ‘Over The Fence’ by Adelaide-based artist Claire Ishino.
“It is always an honour to have my artwork featured on a product,” Ishino said.
“I hadn’t heard of Two Birds Brewing before Jayne first contacted me, but I liked the quirky feel of the labels which just felt fresh and fun.”
The beer is available on tap and in 500ml cans at The Nest from Thursday 30 September, online in our Shop and at all good beer retailers.
