There’s nothing better than two mates coming together over a cold one on a spring afternoon. Born out of Botany, NSW, two mates have done just that, developing a limited-edition craft beer.
In an Australian first, Kellogg’s Corn Flakes take centre stage in a craft beer collaboration with microbrewery One Drop Brewing Co. The two Botany-based businesses have come together to develop and produce the unique limited-edition Kellogg’s Corn Flakes Nitro Milkshake IPA.
Using famous Kellogg’s Corn Flakes in the beer, the Milkshake IPA is a creamy, full-bodied sweet beer with the right slice of hoppy bitterness.
Proudly brewed and canned at the Botany brewery and taproom, the Kellogg’s Corn Flakes Nitro Milkshake IPA is the perfect blend of fruity and creamy. Craft beer aficionados will be able to detect how Sabro, Citra and Simcoe hops take the lead in bitterness, without distracting from the huge hits of ripe strawberry, passionfruit, coconut and mango.
Bruno Madonna, Director of Research and Technology at Kellogg said: “We’ve always had a love of combining innovation with great tasting product at Kellogg.
“Kellogg’s Corn Flakes has been a catalyst to many amazing creations over the years so partnering with local Botany brewery, One Drop, seemed like a no brainer. This beer is a fun way to remind Aussies of the versatility of cereal.”
Nick Calder, head brewer of One Drop Brewing Co. said: “We’ve seen the craft beer market grow exponentially the past few years and we wanted to bring a fresh take to the scene. Using one of Kellogg’s best-selling cereals to produce a trendy Nitro Milkshake IPA was an amazing opportunity to create something different.”
Husband and wife duo Clay Grant and Meg Barbic, who founded One Drop Brewing Co., added: “There really is nothing like getting together with your neighbours over a cold one, and that’s exactly what we did – collaborate with our Botany neighbour Kellogg to produce a great tasting craft beer.”
The Kellogg’s Corn Flakes Nitro Milkshake IPA is brewed and canned at the One Drop headquarters in Botany and available until stock runs out.
