A Tim Tam-flavoured tipple might not be on the wish list of many beer lovers, but it’s just one of the latest flavours emerging from Australia’s brave experimental breweries.
Bigshed’s Craig Basford said his team loves pushing boundaries around what beer can be.
“We love playing with existing foods and drinks and seeing what we can do to ‘beerify’ them,” he said.
“The idea being to get a beer that will taste great on its own, but even better when sucked through a Tim Tam.”

And if the Tim Tam flavour doesn’t take your fancy — how about a brew with the unusual addition of actual chargrilled kangaroo?
Of all the things you could put in a beer, the guys at Rare Bird Brewing in Victoria have put together a red wheat beer, with native mountain pepperberry and kangaroo.
Red Bird’s Peter Imison said the idea came from a nearby suburb aptly named Kangaroo Ground.
“We live next to kangaroo ground, the most accurately named suburb of greater Melbourne and regularly have visits from these awesome marsupials at our brewery and houses,” he said.

“Our second driver was an inability to source organic unicorn tears and because an extensive google search indicated that nobody else had been quite so adventurous as to add this particular product to a beer before.”
These beers and more will all be showcased at the Great Australasian Beer Spectacular which will open in Brisbane on 27 April, and move to Melbourne, Sydney and Auckland in May.
