COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A unique Australian Pilsner, brewed in Beechworth from Chestnuts grown locally in the Beechworth and Stanley hills. The Chestnut Pilsner also uses Galaxy hops from the Rostrevor Hop Garden in the nearby Ovens Valley. As with any of the worlds best pilsner the most important ingredients is time, and we have allowed this beer plenty of it, with each batch aged for around 3 months before release. Bridge Road Brewers have created a gem of a beer through experimenting with local produce, a truly local brew!
This unique lager is very pale and presents a crisp ’pilsner’ like profile combined with a distinct nutty character owing to the use of Chestnuts in the mash. The crisp clean profile of this beer lends itself to the summer months and can be paired with seafood or lighter dishes.
Formally labelled Bridge Road Beechworth Chestnut Lager

Maris (1023) - Canberra, AUSTRALIA - JUN 30, 2012
UPDATED: JAN 25, 2014 From a 330ml bottle on 1/7/2012. Pours a slightly cloudy, very light straw colour with a smallish head. Almost looks a bit like a wit. There’s not a lot in the aroma, with just a hint of nuttiness. The taste follows suit. You get the some chestnut and grassiness, along with a reasonably firm bitterness. Fairly average. Rating 2.8. Re-rate 25/1/2014. Was perhaps a touch generous the last time.

jdpeebs (687) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - MAY 21, 2012
330ml Bottle. Lovely nutty aromas. a crisp and refreshing lager, with a nice little twist. Not a big chestnut but very subtle, which works well.

Bottle from Mane Liquor. Pours light straw in colour with a small white head on it. Sweet malts and a subtle nuttiness. Sweet biscuity malts in the taste. Again with the subtle nut tone in there. Not bad, didn’t mind it at all
