Our head brewer Jake has been keeping extra busy at Helios lately! We've had a bunch of of new limited releases hitting the Helios Brewing taps and takeaway shelves in the past few weeks. Here's a brief summary of what's new at Helios.
Cerberus Red IPA - 6.5%
Cerberus is a three-headed beast used by Hades to guard the underworld and prevent the dead from ever leaving.Gluttonous additions of heavy hitting Galaxy, Nectaron and Strata hops deliver a tropical medley of flavour that is complemented by a complex malt profile, balanced sweetness and a gorgeous red appearance.
Dark Mild - Classic Series - 3.0%
The humble Dark Mild is often overlooked amongst modern craft beer consumers. Whether it's the name or its humble origins as a sessionable English ale, this style demands more attention. To us, the Dark Mild is a truly legendary style that exudes incredible depth and complexity of flavour whilst remaining supremely sessionable. Rich notes of hazelnut and chocolate are complemented by a medium-full body and smooth finish. At only 0.9 standard drinks per can this is a supreme fridge filler for the winter months.
Hop Hands - Hilltop Hops Collab - 3.5%
Hop Hands is a Wet Hop Table Saison brewed in collaboration with Hilltop Hops Farm in Brisbane. The beer is an ode to traditional farmhouse ales that would've been consumed by Wallonian farm workers back in the day. Layered yeast and hop driven complexity deliver notes of stone fruit, citrus, banana and clove and sit above a dry finishing, bready malt base. Ultimate refreshment after a hard days work in the fields.
Chocolate Brownie Imperial Pastry Stout - 13.3%
This Imperial Pastry Stout oozes with notes of rich chocolate and a sweet, toasty biscuit. Don’t be fooled by the dessert forward flavour profile however, this is a gluttonous winter warmer that blurs the line between silly and serious!
Apollo Double IPA - 8%
A modern West Coast inspired IPA showcasing Galaxy, Vic Secret, Enigma, El Dorado and Columbus hops. Bright and tropical notes abound with assertive supporting bitterness and clean finish.
All new releases are available to order online from the Shop section of the website, while stocks last!
