Our monstrous creatives are born not from our greatest fears, but our most human instincts. A Jungian archetype of rebellion, festering within the oppression of conservatism. An explosion of punk counter-culture was the outcome, a serendipitous inevitability of bucolic Brisbane. For the love of Vampires, craving not the expulsion of life but a modicum of humanity. The ultimate salve was Akasha, the non-dimensional holographic imprint of a perfect form.
It's a little-known fact that Vampires are massive hop heads. A tipping of our hat to Brisbane punk rock band Vampyre Lovers, we teamed up with Sydney legends Akasha, to drive hop flavour on a blood-red malt base. Two new hop varieties Sabro and Bru-1 bring a cavalcade of pineapple, coconut, vanilla and passionfruit flavours. A totally new experience in hops. It's a complex beast, with extra bite.
My last sunrise!
