Beer Cartel Advent Calendar Day 21: Yullis Glenn's Negroni Pilsner

17th Oct 2021

Brewer: Yulli's

Location: Sydney, NSW

Style: Negroni Pilsner

ABV: 4.5%

Beer Description:

Glenn's Negroni Pilsner is a wildly ambitious combination of two classic beverages from opposite sides of the drinking experience. Saaz hops and Pilsner malt provide a clean base beer for freshly cold pressed bitter orange juice to bring some body and sweetness to the mid palette, whilst a carefully selected blend of herbs and botanicals get to work on the back end. The result is a fresh and dry Pilsner with a delicately herbaceous and bitter finish emulating the modern classic cocktail, the Negroni.

Brewers Notes: This is one of the most difficult beers we've attempted to make yet at Yulli's Brews. We went through a careful selection of some of the most prominent botanicals that feature in a Negroni. We then made individual spirits of each that we distilled inhouse and then through a process of trial and error found the perfect blend. The bitter orange juice that we used is particularly hard to come by, only being available for a very short period of time during the orange season. They have a far more bitter flavour than a normal orange, very close to a grapefruit. We think we've achieved a great balance between all of these ingredients where one is no more overpowering than the other, hope you enjoy it!
