BentSpoke’s Red Nut, the latest beer in the Drifter Series, will be available in Canberra liquor stores this month after its ‘fanatical following’ in the Braddon pub.

Red Nut is a seasonal red India Pale Ale with a resiny hop and rich caramel malt character, with a 7.0 per cent of alcohol by volume.

According to the Canberra brewery, Red Nut had gained a ‘fanatical following’ in BentSpoke’s Braddon brewpub and it was only a matter of time before it was made available to a wider audience.

BentSpoke co-owner and head brewer Richard Watkins said the seasonal beer was a hit with the customers.

“We listened to what the fans were saying, and we couldn’t keep them waiting any longer. As the leaves turn, and the days get shorter and colder, people’s thoughts turn to darker beers. Red Nut’s fans have been vocal and frequent on social media, so we hope they’re going to enjoy it now in cans,” Mr Watkins said.

Red Nut features Fortnight, Mosaic, Citra, EKG, and Amarillo hops for a big hoppy punch on top of a strong, dark, malt base.

With the silver 375ml cans and BentSpoke’s signature 360-degree lids, Red Nut will be available across the ACT, NSW and Victoria this month from liquor stores.
