If you're a beer lover, then you need to listen up!

World Beer Day is happening THIS FRIDAY (August 3) and to celebrate, Adelaide's only inner-city microbrewery, Lady Burra Brewhouse will be releasing a limited edition, small batch beer that has been created by their brand new Head Brewer, Eliot Kirby.

The Raspberry and Honey Blonde Ale will be the limited edition drink that will hopefully unite beer lovers and brewers far and wide. The raspberry will offer a slightly tart flavour, which will be complemented by the sweetness of the honey, which will give it a hint of banana to the brew.

"People can expect an early taste of summer when they try this ale. The taste is not unlike that of sour peach heart lollies light, crisp and refreshing one that even non-beer drinkers will appreciate", says Eliot.

Eliot may have only recently taken on the role of Head Brewer, but he has demonstrated a strong vision for the Lady Burra brand and is maintaining a strong focus on supporting local suppliers.

A keen homebrewer since he was 18, and now qualified with an Honours Degree in Chemical Engineering, a Bachelor of Science majoring in Chemistry and a General Certificate in Brewing from the International Brewers and Distillers Association, Eliot joined the Lady Burra Brewhouse team as an apprentice in November 2017.

The Lady Burra brand is going from strength to strength; in June this year, the Owners of Lady Burra Brewhouse, Kidd Retail Group, were the successful proponent to redevelop the Boiler House at the Tonsley Innovation District into a brewery, under the Lady Burra label.

The new 800 square metre Boiler House will be transformed into a fully functional brewery, supplementing beer production at the CBD based Lady Burra Brewhouse to supply keg beer to other outlets, as well as the potential to produce a range of bottled or canned beers.

"I want to see our seasonal beer range, like the Golden Ale and Stout, incorporate seasonal fruits from our local suppliers into the brewing process", says Eliot.

As an added bonus to celebrate World Beer Day, anyone who purchases a pint of Eliot's Raspberry and Honey Blonde Ale on Friday (August 3rd) will go into the draw to win an exclusive ceramic Lady Burra Growler filled with the speciality beer, handcrafted by local pottery designer Guy Ringwood. So, grab your mates and order a pint or ten and make the most of this wonderful way to kick off your weekend!
