Head brewer at Eumundi Brewery Chris Sheehan said Eu-Bundy IPA was a limited release special batch brew – a West Coast IPA that’s part Eumundi Brewery, part Bundaberg Rum Distillery with several twists.

“It’s a classic IPA with an assertive yet balanced bitterness and light malt body, and a hearty helping of Bundaberg Small Batch Spiced Rum,” he said.

The partnership brings together two legendary Queensland producers – Eumundi Brewery and the Bundaberg Rum Distillery.

“While beer and rum are from very different drink spheres, we wanted to create some magic by bringing the two together in one glass,” Mr Sheehan said.

Duncan Littler from the Bundaberg Rum Distillery was equally excited to welcome the new brew.

“The opportunity to create Eu-Bundy IPA was a fun and interesting way to stretch our creative legs,” he said.

“We’re proud to have teamed up with a crew that has such a strong local footprint to do it.”

The new beer will be on tap from mid-November at selected Queensland hotels and bars.
