Redback Original is Australia’s original craft beer — first launched in the late eighties. Produced around the time of the Americas Cup defence, Redback’s innovation and unique style took an Australia starved of beer diversity by storm.

Styled on the traditional German wheat beer or weizen style of beer. Redback has a fruity/clove aroma, a generous creamy mouth feel and refreshing hop finish.

We use both malted wheat and barley, and then hop with Pride of Ringwood hops. Fermentation is produced with a specially developed yeast strain.

Prawns. Without a doubt Australia’s culinary coat of arms could be a chilled Redback with a couple of barbecued prawns — this could even be a possible design for a new Aussie flag. However, it is probably going a bit far to mention Redback in the anthem. Maybe.
