Australian drinks company Something Wild Beverages will expand its product range next month with the launch of wattleseed lager.
The beer has been brewed in Adelaide in collaboration with Mismatch Brewing Company. The wattleseed is roasted and milled before being added to the brew.
This is the brewer’s second product, having teamed up with Adelaide Hills Distillery earlier this year to launch Australian green ant gin.
Toby Kline from Something Wild Beverages said: “It’s a really crisp, clean lager with some secondary characteristics of honey and toasted peanuts on the back end.
“There’s a lot of interest in it, but it’s very early days for the product. It’s currently a tap offer only but we’ll be going to a packaged format soon.”
Something Wild Beverages is part of food company Something Wild Australia which specialises in sustainable indigenous foods.
Managing director Daniel Motlop said: “As an Indigenous-owned company it’s great to be able to come home and show people how we’re shaking up the Australian food and beverage industry.
“By working with traditional landowners we can create opportunities and outcomes for the indigenous communities who not only harvest products, but also hold a wealth of knowledge about how to use them.”
The new wattleseed lager will be officially released on 4 July.
